Yes, in Spain the father's name comes always first. As I can see, Argentina follows the same system. Thanks, Pooky!

In this link, you can see the Zorreguietas in an event they attended, at the National Museum of Fine Arts:

You can have a glimpse at the type of people they meet and their astounding combination of surnames (many different options with the Blaquiers, for instance)!

Very posh indeed! All those Blacquiers, Lariviére, and even Amalita, Gino ... Was it a costume ball or sth. like that?

Mr. Jorge Z. was yesterday at an official event in the Casa Rosada (Pink House - were the President and his ministers have 'their office') with the President, the governor of Tucumán province and many other members of the government and various chambers. This was held to announce that biodiesel will start being produced also from sugar. As the head of the chamber that takes care of its issues, he was there and made some statements for the press. I couldn't find pictures of him next to the President though.

On itself the meeting is not interesting at all but quite normal in his capacity of Chair.

An article on the anniversary of the Leloir Institute (for cientific research, named after Argentinian Nobel prize winner Luis Federico Leloir) features Angeles Zorreguieta, half - sister of Máxima (daughter of Mr. Zorreguieta and his first wife). The article points out her achievements in the field, and her succesful experience as part of the Institute (Leloir was apparently her mentor):

EL DIARIO

(...)
LA INFLUENCIA DEL MAESTRO . “La impronta de Leloir es trascendente en cómo podía manejar el lenguaje de los experimentos y ver qué rumbo tomar, materia en la que era evidentemente un genio, y ser a la vez sencillo” como persona, señaló la investigadora Angeles Zorreguieta, formada en el laboratorio de Leloir.
Zorreguieta se especializa en el estudio de bacterias, es hermana por parte de padre de la princesa Máxima de Holanda y tenía 25 años cuando desarrolló su tesis doctoral en Química, entre 1983 y 1988, dirigida por Leloir, quien no llegó a ver la defensa de esa investigación porque murió el 2 de diciembre de 1987.
Zorreguieta evocó que “Leloir fue mi director de tesis doctoral y viví como algo natural mi entrada a su laboratorio, donde él iba siguiendo mis avances, los discutíamos y generalmente, luego de pensar, venía con una propuesta” para seguir el trabajo.
“Fueron los años de mi vida más felices profesionalmente porque tuve un ambiente muy tranquilo y estimulante, y él estaba en la etapa culminante de su carrera, con todo lo que implica de sabiduría, de ver más allá de los resultados, con esa intuición que lo caracterizó para obtener lo que obtuvo”, afirmó.
Zorreguieta siente que el estilo del maestro la influenció en no vivir en zozobra por las dificultades del día a día: “Me dejó esa impronta de no ser muy ansiosa, pero claro... tener todos sus atributos es muy complicado”, dice.
Leloir “era muy de inventar cosas sencillas en la metodología de un experimento para solucionar problemas y gran intuición de dónde poner el ojo para investigar”.
“En el Instituto era crucial, porque imponía mucho respeto sin ser autoritario y se le confiaba la autoridad de tener la última palabra, aunque siempre dejaba lugar a una nueva opinión”, contó.
El científico no era tacaño pero detestaba el derroche, y de ello dan cuenta infinidad de anécdotas de sus colegas, que saben mentar un banquito que acompañó a Leloir hasta sus últimas fatigas.
“Era un banquito de mimbre que él no tenía ninguna necesidad de cambiar; era una persona muy generosa pero simplemente no veía la necesidad de cambiarlo, y hasta traía de su casa los frasquitos de perfume vacíos para poner todas las soluciones que usábamos en el laboratorio, donde se llenaban estantes con frasquitos diferentes”, recordó la investigadora.
La tesis de Zorreguieta fue “muy satisfactoria” porque logró determinar cómo se sintetiza un glucano, un polisacárido que resultó ser muy importante en la interacción con la planta o el animal.
Zorreguieta trabajó con la bacteria Brucella —que produce brucelosis, una de las enfermedades transmitidas del animal al humano más difundidas— e investiga las Agrobacterium y Rhizobium, “una nociva y otra muy positiva” porque hace una simbiosis con leguminosas como la soja que permite fijar el nitrógeno de la atmósfera y convertirlo para que la planta lo asimile y crezca.

I believe that it was Angeles who lived in England for a while too? She or her husband were teachers at a university I believe? Thank you for posting that Verde, there aren't that many pictures around of Maxima's half sisters.

Who is the 3rd half sister btw?

In this article I posted previously (over Dolores Zorreguieta)

Historia de mujeres - Para Ti Online

Marta López Gil (Jorge Z.'s first wife) talks about the education of her three daughters - Dolores, Angeles and María. María is mentioned as an entrepeneur or business woman, and must be around 50 years old now (back in 2002, when this article was published, she was said to be 45).

According to this article, Angeles married twice: First to Mr. Fernando Galante (chemist, with whom she had two sons, Sebastián and Facundo) and then married to Adrián Vojnov (biologist), having a daughter (Ana) as third child. Vojnov got a scholarship in England, and she was hired to teach in Norwich as well. They moved to England in 1997 and came back to Argentina in 2001.

Article on Martín Zorreguieta's political activities in Villa La Angostura (the little city in the Patagonia where he lives and has two restaurants), published by Perfil:

'Máxima's brother got into politics, despite his father's role in the dictatorship'

Diario Perfil | Martin Zorreguieta en La Angostura - El hermano de Máxima se metió en política a pesar del paso de su padre por la dictadura



El hermano de Máxima se metió en política a pesar del paso de su padre por la dictadura

Tiene un restó “fashion” en la villa y otro, pequeño, en el Cerro Bayo. El hermano de la princesa Máxima de Holanda se sumergió ahora en la política: lidera un movimiento vecinalista con el que frenó la instalación de un casino y ganó la intendencia. A los de su partido les dicen “los chetos” por su nivel de vida y su actividad ligada al turismo de alto nivel. Martín Zorreguieta prefiere hablar poco de su padre, funcionario de Jorge Rafael Videla.

I translate the abstract:

He owns a 'fashion' restaurant in the Villa and another one at the Cerro Bayo's basement. The brother of princess Máxima of the Netherlands dived now into politics: he leads a movement of neighbours with which he stopped the settlement of a casino and won the city council. Those in his party are known as 'los chetos*' for their level of life and their activity related to high-level tourism. Martín Zorreguieta prefers not to talk too much about his father, member of Jorge Rafael Videla's regime.

* In Argentina, we call 'cheto' (in a bit of a despective way) to a man who belongs to the upper class, and whose habits, level of life and enviroment are not the most common or accesible to anyone.

Martín Zorreguieta is founder and vicepresident of the Unión Vecina Angostura Comunal, the party mentioned in the previous translated abstract.

In an an interview published this week in Noticias magazine, Martín admits that sometimes he wonders about becoming 'Mayor' of Villa La Angostura, but more certainly expresses his intention of getting a political position in the government.

He also admits that the press coverage given to his restaurant due to Máxima was considerable, and helped a lot (as his restó opened shortly after the wedding, in 2002, and despite the economic crisis )

Thanks Verde, but what is the Union Vecina Angostura Comunal?
