He was never 'poor', but now even more comfortable, from his wife via her father, who is extremely rich.
With no judgements or inferences whatsoever, think Marie Chantal Miller, but in a Venezuelan context.

Most of the money the Franco clan accumulated was during the height of the Dictator in Spain. Just like the Duvaliers, Somozas, Pinochets etc made a lot of money during their respective tiranies, so did the Francos.
Got to run now to work but I'll continue tonight...

Luis Alfonso and María Margarita certainly make up a beautiful and modern couple, they look very good together. Too bad that we don't get to read much about him and other non-ruling royals, at least we don't here in Scandinavia...

Like one of the commentators in the "Young, Sexy & Royal" series said about Luis Alfonso's situation in Spain - he has to "walk on egg shells". I thought that was quite a good description.

I hope when Felipe becomes King he puts those family feuds to rest and gives back the title Duke of Cadiz to poor Luis Alfonso. Let bygones be bygones.

Luis is handsome, but he would look better if he would stop scowling. Is it just me or does he always seem to be pouting or something. His wife is pretty, but only 21? How old is Luis? Anyway, I hope they'll be happy together.

Do you know how anyone can contact with Luis Alfonso?Is there anyone in the forum reading this thread from Venezuela?I would really love to know if Luis Alfonso lives and works there. What do the people in Venezuela think about him? Did they know Maria Margarita before her wedding because of her wealthyness?

To add a piece of information, Maria Margarita's mother (Carmen Leonor Santaella) has studied the law but quitted her carreer in order to bring up her three children. She comes from an aristocratic family indeed! They claim that they come from the conquistadores of Spain! Who knows...

Wow if he were now the Crown Prince of Spain, he would have been a better catch than Crown Prince Felipe.

An even better catch because he would be the King of Spain from when his father died in 1989.

I believe I read he will be working for his father in law's company. Luis Alfonso has also his own personal fortune thanks to mom, Franco's favorite grand daugther. They were all left well provided when the evil one died . What he does not have these days is the title because of the controversy between him and the Orleans' branch that refuses to aknowledge him as the senior member of all Bourbons branches, thus, giving him a dynastic edge over the Bourbon-Orleans family.

In some way I do see their point of view, he is not French, he is distantly related and belongs to an off shot of the House of Bourbon that branched out to Spain 300 years ago. And to add insult to injury, he married without approval of the ones who support his claim nor he bothered to invite them to his wedding. Quite ungrateful for all those legitimist invitations to get lost in the mail. And this marriage without consulting with his supporters was what I read that moved the Orleans to reclaim the title Duke of Anjou back to the core of the French Bourbon branch.
The 'kid' might be well intentioned, but in public relations he has made all the wrong moves.

just a couple of things:

-how has this given him an advantage over the Orleans, Bourbons, or the Orleans-Bourbon line? which line has the bigger "advantage" to the throne? i hope someone from France can give us their view too.

- i do agree with you, that he does not seem French to me at all...he may have the bloodlines, but well, so far, he doesn't seem to personify the French royalty...

peace out!
