Pierre has his hand in a most unfortunate position in the last picture. I assume Rafael is the one on the complete right, who obviously enjoys his time in the gym.

She is the daughter of Francisco de Paula de Borbón y Escafany, Duch of Sevilla (second or third cousin of the King) and Beatriz von Hardenberg Zü Furstenberg. She became sadly famous for taking part in a reality show .

OMG, the Medina brothers are so dreamy, specially Rafael, who's a total hottie and I'm more into blondes but this one is

Does anyone know if Rafael will inherit the Medinacelli Duchy when his grandma dies?

Here you have information about the family
Solferino: de MEDINA
http://www.fernandezdecordoba.org/do...a_cordobas.doc

In agreement with this information, the Duchy will be inherited by his uncle Luis, major brother of his father, or even with the current laws his aunt might inherit it. Rafael, supports the title of Duke of Feria that belong to his father.

thanks lula for the info
I have never seen a pic of the oldest Medinacelli son, that's what I was wondering
the aunt can inherit? I thought the nobility in Spain was ruled by salic laws.
or has it been changed?

I believe that it was last year when the government changed the law in order that the women had the same rights that the men in the succession to the pertaining to nobility titles.

I believe that in general, except several very mass media nobles as the Family Alba, in Spain there are not known publicly all the nobles who exist. In case of the boys Medina-Abascal they are known because their mother always is of party in party with the famous designers and for the terrible history that their father led.

A lot of "known" people in Spain come from aristocratic families, but they aren't famous because of that

For example Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Ana Torroja, Mercedes and Lorenzo Mila and others

I think the two "biggest" aristocratic houses are Alba and Medinacelli, the others aren't that much important

So are the families of Alba and Medinacelli related somewhat to the SRF? I'm not very familiar with Spanish nobility just their royal family. Are the Spanish nobilities own the limelight like the English aristocrats?

There are zillions of them. The reason that, unlike their British counterparts, they are not known except for the internationally prestigious Alba family and a few more, is that the Spanish nobility has no statutory power whatsoever. Moreover, King Juan Carlos has kept them at bay, which is something the Spanish nobility holds against him, even though nobody dares complain, in view of the fact that the King has brought stability in the country.
in Great Britain, in contrast, the nobility enjoys power through the House of Lords as well as via strong relations with the monarchy.
