Who is Alec Juandicimo Carlos?

I was looking at King Juan Carlos' Wikipedia entry today, and it refers to him and Queen Sofia as having "two daughters, Infanta Elena and Infanta Cristina, and two sons, the heir apparent, Felipe, and younger brother Alec Juanducimo Carlos."

Is this a child who died or some prank entry on Wikipedia?

I'd never noticed that before. I have no idea, i've searched google and it came up with no answers.

I checked Queen Sofia's entry, and it's not listed there. Must be some prankster.

Don't belive everything you read in Wiki, as is easy to edit by others.
Queen Sofia only has tow daughters, Elena and Cristina and a son, Felipe.

King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia never had another son (and if they had, I sincerely doubt they would ever think of naming the child Alec Juanducimo Carlos). It's just a prank.

I removed the non-existent son from the King's Wikipedia page.

That's what I figured, although I'm always surprised by the little facts that slip past me. For example, I've had an interest in royalty for years, but I only realized recently that Infanta Margarita is blind...

I saw a nasty trick about two years ago that said Queen Elizabeth was going to die the next day.... it was swiftly removed.

Off topic, my friend told me that someone erased everything on the World of Warcraft page and replaced it with "Is lame." I thought that was funny

You're welcome, magnik.

There are a lot of similar 'amusing' mistakes on Wiki but they are usually removed very quickly. A couple of years ago, just as I became interested in modern Royalty, I stumbled across Queen Fabiola's entry, which, among other things, read, "...the Queen... who was briefly married to Phil Spector".
Another mistake I noticed just today was about Archduke Otto von Habsburg: his page states that Otto has been President of Pan-European Union since 1986, when in fact he's been Interim President since 1972 and President since 1973; they celebrated 32 years of his presidency in 2004.
