Succession

First I'll apologize for having not combed the site for this question.

I know the law regarding equal primogeniture had been passed, I thought it was retroactive to titles created after July '05, but is it retroactive for even the most ancient titles? (with the heir potentially changing in July '05). What about the "Italian" titles?

Thanks - a lurker.

The law had been passed in 2006, and is retroactive to July 2005, and it is valid for all the Spanish titles.

Btw, what do you mean with Italian titles?

That seems sad the old titles are going to pass out of the families more often. I guess I should have put that in heavy italics "italian" P. Belmonte/D. Acerenza family are the only one's that come to mind.

This will happen indeed: for example, the title of Duke of Medina-Celi, hold by Fernandez de Cordoba Family since early XVIII century, at the death of the current Duchess Victoria Eugenia will be inherited by her daughter Ana de Medina and, at Ana's death, by her son Prince Marco zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg; or the Dukedom of Franco, at the death of the present holder Carmen Franco y Polo, will be inherited by her daughter Carmen Martinez-Bordiu y Franco and then by Carmen Martinez-Bordiu's son Luis Alfonso de Borbon.

I don't know the exact answer to your doubt; I can guess that, since now Spain is the only country that officially recognizes the Italian titles given by the Spanish Kings when the south of Italy was still ruled by Spain, these titles are ruled by Spanish Law.

I was reading an article about the law which now entitles females to inherit nobility titles and it says that because of this law, Leonor followed by Sofia are now the direct inheritors to the throne and can't be bypassed by their male cousins. I wasn't aware that this had ever been a possibility. I was under the impression that the only way they would be passed in line would be if the prince and letizia now had a son or sons. That the only way one of their male cousins (I am assuming Felipe since he's the oldest grandson) could be King would be if Prince Felipe died childless and then his sister Elena would have been next in line followed by her son Felipe and then his sister Victoria if *he* were also childless at his own death. Or am I wrong about that?

You are right and the article is wrong. The law regarding nobility titles only affects those nobility titles, a change in the law of succesion(of Kings and Queens) is much more complex and not done yet.
Besides, the only way Leonor(and Sofía) would be bypassed by their male cousins would be with the Salic Law, and we don't have it in Spain.
Felipe is the heir, and Leonor and Sofía are his heiresses unless Felipe and Letizia have a son.

In general its a bad thing to change such a law for the generation to follow where often the male heir has been groomed to take over and now is not allowed to.

I think the international media is confused about the fact that the law was changed for nobility only and hasnt been changed for the SRF as yet.
Women inherit the nobility titles thanks to law of equality

The King has granted nobility titles to the trainer of the Spanish selection, Vicente del Bosque, and to the Nobel prize of Literature, Mario Vargas Llosa, who from this Friday are Marquesses "del Bosque" and "de Vargas Llosa", respectively. The Official Bulletin of the State (BOE) publishes the concession on the part of His Majesty of four new nobility titles, also for the ex-justice of the Constitutional Court Aurelio Menéndez and for the businessman Juan Miguel Villa Mir, that they pass to be Marquess "de Ibias" and Marquess "de Villar Mir" , respectively.
