:flowers: Congratulations to the family! :biggrin:

Congratulations! Best wishes for the twins!

The Grand Prince 05-28-2010 02:49 PM

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

Lumutqueen 05-28-2010 02:52 PM

No they haven't been very original.
But Congratualtions to the pair, shame not one of each.

The Grand Prince 05-28-2010 02:57 PM

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?

ladybelline 05-28-2010 03:28 PM

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

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).

Congratulations to Luis Alfonso and Margarita; now I can't imagine their familiar life, having in family Luis Alfonso, Luis and Alfonso...

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.

Melibea 05-28-2010 05:54 PM

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

Kotroman 05-28-2010 06:19 PM

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?

Melibea 05-28-2010 06:22 PM

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!

As a twin myself I wonder who will be considered as the heir !

Katrianna 05-28-2010 11:28 PM

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.:smile:

V.F.H.78 05-29-2010 03:58 AM

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!

Lumutqueen 05-29-2010 04:38 AM

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