Not only him look at her also she is huge already, big heaps and chubby face. What about her clothes? She needs to upgrade her wardrove seriously. Those pants are very late 1980s early 1990s.

I like his wife´s fashion style, especially the way she wears shawls. She is definitely classy not trashy.

I am at a total loss here.:o Can someone please tell me exactly who this person, Louis Alfons, is? I've searched TRF and throughout the NET, but nothing really comes up. Is he a pretender to a European throne? What is his major significance to royalty?

:)

OK, we'll start at the beginning. King Alfonso XIII of Spain had four sons:

1. Alfonso, Prince of the Asturias (1907-1938), who renounced his rights to the throne of Spain in 1933; married twice but no issue;

2. Jaime, Duke of Segovia (1908-1975), who renounced all rights to the throne of Spain for himself and his descendants in 1933 (confirmed 1945 and 1947).
Following the death of Alfonso XIII he assumed the title of Duke of Anjou as primogeniture representative of the House of Bourbon. His eldest son:

> Alfonso (1936-1989) Duke of Bourbon, Duke of Burgundy; succeeded his father as primogeniture representative of the House of France in 1975; cr Duke of Cadiz by Franco in 1972 when he married Franco's grand-daughter, and the same year was cr a Royal Highness; one surviving son:

>> Luis Alfonso (b 1974) Duke of Touraine and Duke of Bourbon.
succeeded his father as Primogeniture representative of the House of France and assumed the title of Duke of Anjou.

3. Juan (1913-1993) Count of Barcelona, Prince of the Asturias, father of King Juan Carlos;

4. Gonzalo (1914-1934)

Luis Alfonso is dynastically significant in two ways:
  • He is the senior male by descent of King Alfonso XIII;
  • He is the primogeniture senior Prince of the Bourbon dynasty and therefore, in some eyes, the rightful King of France (and, it could be argued, of Spain).
Although Luis Alfonso has been careful not to make any claims on his own behalf, relations with the Spanish Court could be described as "cool and distant" (the King has not granted him the style of Royal Highness, and none of the Spanish RF attended his wedding, a slight which was commented on at the time).

The Comte de Paris, Head of the Royal House of France of the Orléans line, declared his nephew Prince Charles-Philippe d'Orléans Duc d'Anjou in 2004, in what was an obvious and heavy-handed insult to Luis Alfonso, but may have demonstrated the Comte's lack of judgement and politesse instead.

There is some confusion as to Luis Alfonso's style and title; some refer to him as a Prince of Bourbon with the style of Royal Highness, while the Spanish Court refers to him as Excellency.

That was a great brief on Luis Alfonso, Warren. :)

Luis Alfonso, had his father become King of Spain, would be the King today and not Juan Carlos. The rivarly betwen Juan Carlos and his first cousin, the Duke of Cadiz, ended (or became more bitter) when Franco chose Juan Carlos over Alfonso, Duke of Cadiz. I read in a controversial book that the only reason Franco played with the Cadiz candidate was to keep Juan Carlos and his father in check, kind of black mail as if saying "if you don't behave the way I want I got this other candidates..." When Franco was shopping for Borbons, even the most extremist branch, the Carlistas, showed up. I think Franco kicked them out of Spain. Those were the last Carlist pretenders

But, Juan Carlos, the great master of survival, fooled both Franco and the Francoists and triumphed over the Cadiz candidate. And I'm glad for that, Franco's grand daugther as Queen of Spain would have been a disaster for the monarchy with her temperament. Last week I saw her pictures in Hola magazine posing with such vulgararity and talking about her lovers. I'm glad we have Sofia and not her for Queen.

And there is also another saga related to the inner fights between the Borbons that go back to the 19 Century, when Queen Isabela II and her kin were looking for spouses. I don't remember the details but the Spanish Borbons sided with the Borbon-Orleans and Borbon-Two Sicilies (Kingdom of Napoles and Sicily) branch instead of the legitimists Borbons (the heirs of Charles X). Later the legacy of the legitmists fell on the Cadiz clan, thus, Luis Alfonso.

Thank you Glittering Tiaras and Toledo. :)

Luis Alfonso's mother, Dona Carmen, daughter of Don Cristobal Martinez-Bordiu, 10th Marques de Villaverde, and Dona Maria del Carmen Franco, 1st Duchess of Franco, was reported in both Royalty Digest and Point de Vue as causing a fuss during the wedding reception of her son. Apparently not all of the arrangements, including the seating, were to her liking, and she let the bride's parents, and others, know . They weren't amused.
