Interstitial - Noticia

The Great Duke of Alba

Alba's House commemorates the fifth centenary of the birth of the Great Duke of Alba, Fernando Álvarez of Toledo, an inconvinient and controversial figure that has given place to an endless number of false legends. On the occasion of this anniversary Don Jacobo Siruela, son of Dona Cayetana, has decided to re-edit the biography that William Maltby wrote on his forefather, " the most complete and veracious that exists " according to the duke.

La Mañana - De la Casa de Alba a Guimerà

Of Alba's House to Guimerà

20 times Great of Spain, Maria del Rosario Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart y Silva known by the title of Duchess of Alba is, from the last 6th of September, the flaming Countess of Guimerà. The department of Justice has granted it to her to the death of the last Count, Carlos Caro Vázquez, with whom the Duchess of Alba competed for the title in 1969. Guimerà's county goes back year 1599 and though it does not have any practical utility, is a title still longed by the current aristocracy.

Spotlight | Spanish aristocrats lose their glamour | Indiainteracts.com

SPANISH ARISTOCRATS LOSE THEIR GLAMOUR

With all their tax and other privileges (such as that of obtaining a diplomatic passport) having been abolished decades ago, the bearers of hereditary aristocratic titles are "limited to keeping alive the memory of a moment in our historic past," the government said in a 2006 legal bulletin.

The bulletin was announcing a law ending one of the last aristocratic traditions: the first right of sons to inherit titles before daughters.

The aristocracy no longer exists as a class, neither economically, nor socially, nor culturally," said publisher Jacobo Martinez de Irujo, one of the Duchess of Alba's six children
...
"Aristocrats cannot even be distinguished for the quality of their education," he told the daily El Pais.

I think that Rafael de Medina is now dating a lady called Genevova de Casanova, is she related to the husband of Archduchess Monika, Don Luis de Casanova, Duke of Sanangelo.

Genoveva Casanova is Mexican, and is separated from Cayetano Martínez de Irujo, Count of Salvatierra and son of the Duchess of Alba. She is a friend of Rafael Medina, at this moment, after her separation every man who approaches Genoveva is a supposed boyfriend, but for the present time nothing of nothing is of certainly in this history.
