Duke and Duchess of Anjou: birth of twin sons May 2010

Congratulations to Luis Alfonso and Margarita! They have two new sons! They have called them Luis and Alfonso. They have not been very original when choosing the names

Congratulations to the family! The only problem now is which of the two twins is considered their father's heir.

Well they are two names steeped in tradition within the family so it seems reasonable that they would be called Luis, after their father, and Alfonso, after their grandfather, along with the many ancestors who also share the same name.

But I thought it was not very original becuase the father is called "Luis Alfonso", I'm sure that there many other historic names that they could have chosen. Now I'm interested in knowing which name the heir got: Luis or Alfonso?

I'd say the heir is Luis...the dynastic name. But more details about who is the eldest child will probably appear soon. Congratulations !

In french royal tradition, the oldest and the heir is the last born. In french old christian tradition, where nobody has science knowledges, the last gone out, it's the first gone in (the mother).

Hearty Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Anjou, and to "big sister" Eugenia. I am delighted for them!

Whoever the heir is, the chances of seeing the head of the House of Capet on the throne of Spain have dramatically decreased.

Well it wouldn't have lasted long on that branch so it doesn't matter too much.

True, as the Prince of Asturias has no sons. It would've been interesting though, even for only one generation!

Anyway, who is the first in line?

We still don't know, I suppose that tomorrow we will get more info. I'm sure that the spanish press will ask Carmen Bordiu about it and she always comments so we will have to wait!

Cool

I don't know about royal heirs, but with either identical or fraternal twins, the twin born first is considered older even if it's a matter of a minute or two. I don't have a clue in this case.

The royal twins are born!!! Vive le Roy! Vive le Dauphin!
Princess Maria Margarita, duchess of Anjou, gave the birth to Prince Louis, duke of Bourgogne, and Prince Alphonse, duke of Berry, in New-York at 15h33 (french hour).
Long life to our princes!

It has been apparently decided that Prince Louis as Dauphin will be the heir to his father.
He must have been the older.
