If you are referring to the daughters of the King and Queen, rather than the King's sisters, there are seperate threads on them, Infanta Elena and Family and Infanta Cristina and Family respectively. Please refer to those threads for more news, pictures and information.

Have always wondered about the title "infanta." Is that like "Princess" in England or like "Lalla" in Morocco? Isn't Princesa the Spanish word for Princess, and if so, why is this not used? Thanks in advance... =D

Infanta is equiuvalent to Princess in other countries, just as if the King and Queen had had another son after Felipe, he would be known as Infante so and so.

I am not sure about your other questions.

Fireweaver 05-05-2004 04:21 PM

I think they're called Infanta/Infante because they're "Children of Spain"
the heir to the throne is a special case.

carlota 05-05-2004 04:45 PM

that's right!

it's curious that they don't use the word 'princesa' and 'principe'... maybe it has to be with some kind of tradition or something like that.

Roos 05-05-2004 05:10 PM

Fireweaver was right on the answer.

Infanta is used for the children of the king I think.

But then why are the present King's sisters also titled Infantas Pilar and Margarita? To my knowledge, their father was not King of Spain, though he should've been.

paulette 05-08-2004 01:17 PM

When I looked up in a Spanish dictionary, it was stated there that a person is called

Infante when he is the son of a Spanish or Portugese king
Infanta when she is the daughter of a Spanish or Portugese king.

In the case of King Juan Carlos' sisters, they are called still Infantas because their father would have been a king and generally, Infante or Infanta refers to a child. Even though their father was not able to succeed as king but he was still a spanish royal.

Infanta Pilar in Portugal for "El rastrillo"
 
Hi:

Yesterday she went to Lisbon to open the 1st "el rastrillo" in Portugal with the wife of Republican president, Maria José Ritta and Maria Barroso. And she spoke in Portuguese with the people in the rastrillo. Here you have the article:

"Doña Pilar de Borbón inaugurated a rastrillo in Portugal
The Infanta attended the first beneficial rake that is celebrated in earth lusas. / EFE

The Infanta Doña Pilar de Borbón inaugurated yesterday, next to the wife of president Jorge Sampaio, Maria Jose Ritta, the first edition of the beneficial fair of El rastrillo in portuguese land, organized by the shared in common association THE NEW FUTURE. The infanta, the wife of president Sampaio and the Portuguese minister of Culture, Maria Joao Bustorff Espírito Santo, they crossed the dependencies of the rastrillo after the welcome words.

Thank you Marezdote and Sylvia!:D

These will help a lot!;)

It should be really interesting to actualise this thread about the king's sisters. I mean explaining about their sons weddings, specially those referring to Pilar, and their affairs, as well as their professional lives... just to give a different perspective of the family of the king of spain and how normal they are. I would do that if I had any photos but I don't. Nevertheless, I'll try to give some info

Elsa M. 07-03-2005 10:50 AM

Thanks, Igilmo! Your contribution will be very welcome!
In the meanwhile, we have another thread dedicated to the children of Infantas Pilar and Margarita and their respective families.
Take a look at:

I wonder why their biographies are not available on the King's Houshould webpage even though they belong to the Spanish Royal Family.

It's because they belong to the Royal Family, but not to the Royal House. I believe that the same will happen with Elena and Cristina when Felipe is king.
