  1. Pardon me for nit-picking, but, as an old English teacher, is must: Isn’t Juan Carlos the 2nd with that name? Wasn’t his grandfather the first?

  2. JessRulz says:

    No, Juan Carlos’ grandfather was Alfonso XIII. His father’s name was Juan, with Carlos as his first middle name, not joined as his first name. Infante Juan’s name has no bearing on Juan Carlos’ regnal name though, as he was never King (he would have been Juan III if he had been King however).
