www.corbis.com - King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia during the state banquet at the Quirinal Palace.

I love this dress on Queen Sofia. I don't know what is about this dress because it is usually too fancy and frou-frouy for my taste personally, but I adore the look of it.

www.corbis.com - Sixteen year old Prince Juan Carlos of Bourbon, is said by informed monarchist sources to be seriously considered by General Franco as his eventual successor. In letters to the Prince's father, Don Juan, Franco is said to have suggested that Juan Carlos continue his higher education in Spain so that he might be prepared for an eventual "return of the monarchy." The young son of the Spanish pretender is shown here at a recent reception at Villa Giralda in Estoril, Portugal.

The caption says 2004, but I think I've seen these pictures from a visit several years back in Hola. Perhaps someone could correct me or the Getty captions (as they've been known to be wrong before) about when this trip took place. Thanks.

(Getty Images) COMILLA, BANGLADESH: Queen Sofia of Spain listens stories of Bangladeshi village women during a visit to a microcredit project site in the village of Taposkoni in Comilla district, some 80 kilometers northwest of Dhaka, 15 February 2004. Sofia arrived in Bangladesh for a four-day visit to attend the Asia Pacific Regional Summit on Microcredit, where about 1300 delegates from 44 countries including a number of dignitaries will take part, starting on 16 February 2004 in Dhaka.

I believe she was born Sophie, but her name was slightly altered in pronunciation and in spelling, so that it would be be (for a lack of a better word) "Spanish-ized," hence Sofia.

I read that Queen Anne Marie of Greece is referred to sometimes as Anne Maria of Greece, for the same reasons, a "Greek-ization" of her name.

Hellenization

"Greek-ization" Hmmm. That sounds interesting. Not to be confused with Geek-ization.

She&#39;s like Queen Silvia-a very classy, refined lady, who isn&#39;t snobbish or uppity, just really polished and sophisticated. Every inch the Queen, but also warm and nice.

IIRC, Anne-Marie *actually changed* her name to Anna-Maria at the time of her marriage, no?
