Nice you know the area so well but it appears the historic sense is lacking dear Tosca,even if I know where you're coming from,ie,know what you mean,it does fit better in the actual thread on the B-P's then in a,or any,funerary thread.I am sorry to hear about the disfunctional way the old B-P's behaved in the Dukedom,it is however of no consequence to neither the family nor the city now and one should bare in mind the death can not defend themselves.n'Importe pas,the funeral will go ahead as planned and fitting a Prince and late Duke and even the President of the Republic will attend thus paying respect to a form of rule prior to the present one.

The Ordine Costantiniano is in charge of the funeral and I do think there will be camera's allowed.
Immediatly after the interment in the crypt HRH Duke Carlos Javier will be inaugurated as the
rightfull successor to his fathers legacy as Duke of Parma.

And the airforce flying over didn't cost an extra bit at all,they,all airforce pilots everywhere,have to make
their flying hours each month in order to keep their permit so whether they fly here or around the corner
does not matter,it is all fitted in the same budget,so,no worries.

Moreover,Carlos Ugo as he is known in Italy,is the only descendant of a former Italian Royal House
who was able to build a bridge between his House and the Republic,and is acknowledged as such
in Parma.Different from the Savoya's who took over in 1861 and robbed all the B-P's had left,and
they had left all except a suitcase.All was plundered and taken to the Palaces in Rome.

Carlos Ugo came to Parma 15 years ago with the authentic wish to restore bonds.
The tradionally leftists of Parma frowned,but eventually gave in to Carlos as they
witnessed this modest kind man was genuine and thus won the hearts of the local
politicians,,business world and locals.A tour through South America to promote
Parma?Carlos Ugo joined in and travelled the continent for Parma much to the delight
of the community.

His children are afluent in Italian and are in Parma very often,as
often as they can to be exact,either there or staying with Aunt
Beatrix in Tavernelle,but Italy has their heart.

He build a bridge to the Republic and was respected for doing so,
he visited the President of the Republic at the Quirinale Palace,and
now,the President will honour the modest genuine man he too came
to respect and like.

The Savoys took things to Rome? Carlos Hugo himself left the archives of his family to Spain, it's written here HRH Prince Carlos Hugo - Telegraph
Carlos Hugo is the only one who built bonds with the Republic? May I remember you that the Republic was born without civil war thanks to king Umberto II? And that Amedeo and Aimone of Savoy both served in the Italian army?

Saying bad things about others will not make people like more Carlos Hugo. The best strategy is to say good things about him.

I wish the honour that is now been given to an unknown person, whose family was kicked off Parma back in 1859 following a revolution, would have been given to King Umberto, who really put all his effort in rebuilding a democratic country after the dictatorship and the civil war following the Armistice, and that paid for the mistakes his father had made.

The funeral in Parma looks like an 'escamotage' not to tread on the Spanish monarchy's toes. I'm not familiar with Carlos Hugo and his family history, but he sounded to be a difficult person as regard King Juan Carlos.
The Spanish flag that bedecked his coffin sounds inappropriate as well. They could have chosen the Parma flag instead. That sounds like as if they still consider this part of Italy as their colony. That's not very nice to a land that accepted to host your funeral and your remains. That's my opinion.

Queen Beatrix is quite popular in Italy, and her mother was even more. They all liked a Queen who didn't mind to wash her laundry and peg it out.
But, no offence intended, the Duke was totally unknown to most Parmesans, let alone the rest of the Italians.

Tg Parma today said that about one thousand Parmesans paid their respects to the Duke during his lying in state.

Anyone know if there will be a cortege tomorrow? It does seem unlikely, as the coffin is already in the church and they didn't talk about any cortege in the news.

I guess they did because they watched TG Parma, and read 'La Gazzetta'.
And that's just 1% of Parma population.

The Steccata church is the Seat of the Ordine Costantiniano and it is them that take care of the funeral and everything as
the late Duke was their Grandmaster.When you are,as you say,not familiar with the Duke,then that showed.

No,Carlos Hugo wasn't difficult at all,and there is no,has not been,a difficulty between Don Juan Carlos and Carlos Hugo in decades.I have known the late Duke and I can assure you he was a kind,modest and warm man in every respect.That is how he won the local,and some National, Italian politicians up to President Napolitano as well,they appreciated him.The Spanish Flag?Historical origins,and anyone can put a national flag of a country on your coffin if you think it looks better,una ultima bella figura....

All I wrote in previous posts concerning the B-P's and Parma,was translated from the Gazetta di Parma as the chief editor
was so kind to tell what I translated.

As for dear Umberto,he wasn't a Monarch long enough to even get a chance to reform which is regrettable.And the referendum on the Monarchy was tempered with,a fraud,and he was illegally set aside I still believe.A pitty,Italy could very well still be a Monarchy if fraud was ruled out then.His final resting place should be in the Pantheon,should have been decades ago,what is "Rome" afraid of one wonders.

At least I recognize my faults, whilst some others don't, and don't go about the boards offending the other posters more or less covertly. And since I'm no longer a mod, I do not act as if I still were..

This said there's an interesting article on facebook written by a member of TRF. I hope she won't be mad at my if I post the link. Vero Marina?

Lucien , Do you now if the other French Bourbon-Parme (Michel and others) will be there ?
On the cover of the french magazine Point de Vue of this week were N and T 's pre-wedding and I am sure next week their wedding
Inside an article about the Duke's up an down's life ..
Historicaly the death of the Duke, the history of his Family are more important than the ex-king of Greece son's wedding. But alas the royal magazine mentionned above is now a "people magazine"
They will sell more with a wedding in the sunny Greece that make people dream..

Good for Umberto.But,you missed my point entirely.Amedeo and Aimone huh?Great,mixing apples and stuff doesn't make a point either way.

The late Duke made a point in re-connecting with his heritage and all it involved,thus building a bridge between the Republic and his House,and succeeded.Not wellknown maybe,true,but true nonetheless.As we say here nothing ill on the death,and one would really had to delve deep to really find something worthwhile on Carlos Ugo.
Italy may shrug it´s shoulders for this Prince,Parma is not.

Ah yes,Tosca,I remember.Ciao bella!

I don't understand what you want to say about HRH Prince Amedeo of Savoy and HRH Prince Aimone of Savoy who have always respected the wishes of HM King Umberto II.
Anyhow the Savoy Dinasty is quite linked with the Dinasty of Bourbon-Parme because of the marriage of HRH Princess Maria of Savoy (sister of HM King Umberto II) with a Prince of Bourbon-Parme.

Oh,yes,PdV,that commercial rag,full of commercials fit for todays sort of customers?An insult to the grey cells of people who have more knowledge on issues.Hmm.I ceased to get it,to much junk.Prince Michel?Maybe,after all Carlos Hugo was Head of the House,and he will
have to acknowledge Duke Carlos Javier as the new Head of the Royal House at the inauguration tomorrow..

Oh but ofcourse a wedding sells better,and this was Nikolaos after all,OK with me he and Tatiana got more coverage,and well deserved.
That's life.La vita.Oh and Cory,I didn't mean to say anything on either one,good boys but not relevant in this thread,that is what I
mean with mixing.They are Savoya's,and the only ones in the family that keep up with their station,ie ,not dance around...But no relevance
at all with the House of Bourbon-Parma in relation to the death of the late Duke.

A cortege is too much maybe,but the coffin will be carried outside from the camera ardente it is in now at the Steccata,and the Knights of the Ordine Costatiniano di San Georgio will carry the coffin to the main entrance of the same church,a short but impressive cortege no doubt.

Besides the late Duke's children,their partners and three of his sisters,the Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg,
grandson of Prince Felix de Bourbon Parma,will be in attendance.It's a bit of a "dispersed" family,will have to
wait and see who will come and where sympathies are within the family but I expect most if not all of them
to come,moreover in light of the inauguration of the new Duke as Head of the House in the Steccata immediatly
after the funeral.

You were the first one to talk about Italian former ruling families. Everybody can see it reading the thread, that's why I wrote about them.

Duke Carlos Hugo was interred in the simple habit of a Benedictine monk in the crypt of
the Steccata in the presence of his former wife Princess Irene,his children and their partners
and three sisters.

Immediatly after the interment the inauguration of Duke Carlos Javier has taken place as new Head of the
Royal House de Bourbon Parma.In his inaugural speech the new Duke emphasizes he accepts the Spanish
claims as still valid.No doubt we will be able to read the speech here soon.
