What do you think about his election to marry with Maria Margarita Vargas. Remember that he is a possible king in the almost impossible case that France returns to be a Monarchy. ?

Dulce Elena 05-01-2004 10:45 PM

Firstly, I think she's incredibly young!!! She's alright. She's no beauty queen, however being a millionaire's daughter is a help, too! At least she's not completely heinous looking !!!

laquiche 05-02-2004 12:33 PM

Hello,

It's difficulte to me to speak english but I try: if Louis wants te be married with Maria because he love her there's not any problems. But I think monarchy can take good things into a republique. I angry, because Louis fighted several years to be recognize as Louis XX. Now, he isn't make something to France apart from beautiful mass and a engagement in "ordre des chevaliers de malte". What I want to say is if he wants realy to be in charge with french people why he isn't make something concrete. Where's does he make is military obligation? Not in france that sure. Why does he live in Spain or in USA? Yet, he give at french people the biggest reason to think monarchy and king are disgusting as président and other république men. French people have many problems: unemployement, violence, divorce, no confidence in futur, no moral values...They needs a model of devotement and love. The french monarchy is dead, it's right. But the alliance between republique and monarchy is not born. But it's an ideologie and since forever the first ideologie is money and power, not vocation and honour. It's stupid because if louis wants to change just a few he can, I think....like the little boy in the american film: un better world. Is her gilfriend interesting of french people? Could she give his fortune to help french? What do you thing about this?

ally_cooper 05-04-2004 11:59 AM

I hear that they will marry in Palm Beach on november 7th. Do you know if this is true?

laquiche 05-04-2004 12:51 PM

In the FRench magasine HOLA: propos recueillis par nicolas diat:
"je suis très lié depuis trois ans avec une jeune femme originaire du vénézuela. Mais je veux encore réfléchir avant de prendre une décision. Je suis un peu effrayé par tous ces couples qui se marient et divorce deux ou trois après."

He's afraid, so I'm not sure He fixes the date of wedding

Dulce Elena 05-19-2004 05:21 PM

Of course he is afraid. He has lived his life as a consummate bachelor. Does Margarita care about the French people? Who knows! I don't think the French people are the first on his mind when it came to selecting a bride.

Aubisse 05-24-2004 06:45 AM

Please do not forget that Monseigneur le duc d'Anjou had a rather tragic faimily life. His parents divorced, his grandparents were also divorced. He lost his brother, he lost his father.
He became head of the House of Bourbon when he was very young. So, according to me, what he really needs now is a happy family life. And a wife ready to love him, ready to spend all her life with him and to educate their children in the holly catholic faith.

Josefine 05-24-2004 06:59 AM

Louis-Alphonse was at the spanish wedding do you know if his fiancee was there?

Dulce Elena 05-24-2004 10:03 PM

No, she wasn't there. I saw him with an older lady beside him. Which makes me question the engagement. If she is his fiancée, shouldn't she be making at least a few appointments with him? The wedding seems like a very easy occassion as compared to other functions where the onus is more on him.

Aubisse 05-25-2004 07:00 AM

Wasn't the lady his grandmother, the duchess of Franco. Can anyone send some picture of LA in this wedding ?
Thanks :-)

I totally agree. Luis Alfonso had a sad chilhood and I hope his wife can give him all the love his need. At least she seems to be a sweet girl for me

Louis-Alphonse de Bourbon, Duke of Anjou (2ndR), arrives, 08 June 2004 at Saint-Denis basilica, where the tiny heart of Louis XVII, the son of the beheaded king Louis XVI and queen Marie-Antoinette, was put in a royal crypt outside of Paris. Louis-Charles, the so-called "lost dauphin" who would have reigned as Louis XVII, died of tuberculosis at the age of 10 on June 8, 1795 in a windowless cell in the French capital's Temple prison, where he had been incarcerated with his parents before they were guillotined.

Luis Alfonso's father, Don Alfonso de Borbon y Dampierre, was the elder son of the late HRH Infante Don Jaime of Spain.

Jaime was the second son of Alfonso XIII. He renounced his right to the throne in 1933 because he was mute and deaf. Two years later, he married an Italian noblewoman. The marriage was not equal (but that didn't matter because he had already renounced his rights and the rights of his descendants.)

Alfonso married Franco's granddaughter Carmen. Franco created him HRH and duke of Cadiz. Luis Alfonso is their younger son.

The duke of Cadiz was a first cousin on Juan Carlos, whose father, HRH Infante Don Juan, Count of Barcelona, was the third son of Alfonso XIII.

<The marriage was not equal (but that didn&#39;t matter because he had already > <renounced his rights and the rights of his descendants.)>
-> according to spanish laws, the marriage may has been unequal. (anyhow the bride&#39;s father was a duke and he wasn&#39;t italian but french). According to french laws there is no unequal mariage. The heir of the french throne is the head of the Bourbon family.

CathyEarnshaw 06-10-2004 10:58 AM

Luis Alfonso is not the heir to the French throne - he descends from Philippe. Duke of Orleans, who renounced his rights (and the rights of his decendants) to the French throne, when he became King of Spain.

CathyEarnshaw 06-10-2004 11:03 AM

Emanuela&#39;s father was an Italian duke - not royalty. However, Jaime had already renounced his rights and the rights of his descendants 2 years before he married.

He descends fom Philippe, Duke of Anjou, not Duke of Orleans.

I will not discuss the renounciation story with you. See heraldica.org to have the full Orleans vs Anjou story.
