Thatīs a beautiful portrait, I believe by Lazslo. The one I say shows Queen Ena from head to toe (with beautiful shoes by the way). She is wearing a small crown (not a tiara like in the one by Lazslo) and a long court dress. Iīm in NY now, but Iīll be back in Spain within two weeks. I can go to the Royal Palace then, buy a postcard showing that painting and scan it. The painting is by Alvarez de Sotomayor. I looked in Google (I wrote "Alvarez de Sotomayor" + "Victoria Eugenia") and found several webpages about that painting, but no photograph. If you can read Spanish maybe you can read about it in those pages.

Portrait of Queen Ena in Hispanic Society of America

If you are in New York City, there is a portrait of Queen Ena at the Hispanic Society of America on Audubon Terrace, 155th Street and Broadway. It is in the North Gallery (Across from the main building. Although, I think you must go to the main building first to ask security to open the gallery for you). It is in the first gallery in a corner. I don't know who the artist is. I believe there is also one of King Alfonso as well.

Yeah, you're right.

Queen Ena was the daughter of Prince Henry of Battenberg and Princess Beatrice of Saxe-Coburg, who was one of Queen Victoria of England's daughters.

I hope that this can help. (Sorry for my English)

If I'm not mistaken, Queen Ena of Spain was Queen Victoria's favourite granddaughter or at least, the daughter of her favourite and youngest daughter. Hope it helps as well

Impossible to see the tiaras the links refer to: no way to see the images

I think the pictures you want to show in these links are of great interest, but the thing is that i've been trying to watch them and i haven't been able to... could you manage to sort this out?
Thanks a lot

I think Danjel had a problem with the copyright of the photographs, etc. and they all had to be taken away.

It's awful, it was a beautiful site!

what a pity that the photos can't be seen? Can't anybody do anything about it?
It would be nice to watch the photos... since that's part of the history of Spain and its royal family

Maybe this is the last time we see each other in this life. You have in front of you three eligible royal princes; choose one as the next King of Spain now. This is a petition by your Queen." Franco appointed Prince Juan Carlos as the next King of Spain the following year.
Thanks to Queen Ena that General Franco listened to her. While I was reading this post I was so amazed by how she spoke those words. Even if I didn't actually hear her say those words I'm pretty sure that she was respected by Spaniards. One question though, did her husband die first? I'm a follower of the Spanish RF but my knowledge of their history is not that good

I, too, do not know much about Spanish history. Was Queen Ena the grandmother of King Juan Carlos? What's the connection?

Yes, she was his grandmother. Her son was his father, the Count of Barcelona. She was born Princess Victoria Eugenie of Battenburg and one of the favorite granddaughters of Queen Victoria of England.
