That's quite an impressive list of titles held by His Majesty. It's funny that it does not include the title of King of Spain though.

By the way, does anyone know when the Spanish Kings were stopped being referred to as "His Catholic Majesty"?

I have read some old law manuscripts and whenever they talk about the Spanish King the refer to him as His Catholic Majesty.

He still is. Majestad Católica = Catholic Majesty It does not say King of Spain but it mentions all the kingdoms that united to make up Spain. And also of other places that were ruled by his ancestors. Here is an article on His Majesty. It may help you understand better. His titles are listed at the end.

There is an argument here as to what His Majesty's official title is. Is it Juan Carlos, or Juan Carlos I. Since in the Spanish Constitution it is stated as Juan Carlos I, I would assume that is his official title.

He is indeed the heir of the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

Alexia, Pavlos, Nikolaos, Theodoran and Phillipos didn't inherited the title prince(ss) of Denmark from there mother. 'HM (elected) King George I of Greece (Hellenes)' was born 'HRH Prince George of Denmark', the second son of 'HM King Christian IX of Denmark', making his male line descendents prince(ss) of Denmark

If you consider this, I don't think that the Children of 'HM Queen Sofia of Spain, Princess Of Greece and Denmark' bear the title: Prince(ss) of Greece and Denmark

Felipe is not a prince of Greece. When Queen Sofia married she ceased to be a Princess of Greece and Denmark. The Spanish royal family actually uses surnames. In Spain & other spanish speaking countries people have two last names one from their father and one from their mother. Since the GRF did not have a last name they use of Greece (de Grecia in spanish). That is why his name is Felipe de Borbón y Grecia.

O, I knew she relinquished her rights to the throne of Greece, but I was under the impression, that Queen Sofia didn't give up her title of Princess of Greece and Denmark

Why do the Princes of Asturias sign their Christmas Cards with their title under their signature? If the cards are for family and friends mainly, isn't it tacky?
Same with the Infantas...the King and Queen don't sign like that, do they?

Yes they do. The little R's under their names mean Rey & Reina. It's a custom in Spain to sign like that.

Actually after their names you can see an "R." (sometimes its just "R"). This in an abbreviation that stands for Rex (King) or Regina (Queen).

I think that you are correct.
When Queen Annemarie married King Konstantin of Greece she relinquished all of her rigths to the throne of Denmark.Therefore she can never becom Queen of Denmark...The funny thing of it is that when Princess Benedikte of Denmark married Prince Richardt of Berleburg she did not relinquished her rigths to the throne of Denmark and can therefore becom Queen of Denmark if and i pray to good it will never happend Queen Margrethe,Crownprince Frederik, Baby prince of Denmark,Prince Joachim,Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix woud be killed in a huge accident.

So if that's true, for example, Cristina's title would be HRH Cristina de Borbón, Infanta of Spain, Duchess of Palma, Princess of Greece and Denmark? Talk about being TOTALLY royal:)

Sofia was never a Princess of Denmark. The Denmark portion is because of Queen Anne-Marie of Greece. Her children are of Princes of Greece and Denmark.
