Pitty that we are not used to see Jaime smiling more often. He seemed such a friendly guy on these photos...

D. Jaime's elder brother, D. Amalio Joaquín de Marichalar y Sáenz de Tejada, succeeded his father in 1979 as the 9th Count of Ripalda, see the bottom of the right-hand column in the PDF file linked below:

It is interesting that two of the three of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofía's children intermarried with the aristocracy, with Don Jaime being a son of a count and Don Iñaki being the son of a Belgian noblewoman. I believe Belgium was the only other European kingdom where that was the case for the senior royals of their generation.

That is not so surprising. In previous generations, members of the Spanish royal family usually only married other royals. So marrying younger sons of noblemen was actually "climbing down" quite a lot so to speak. But, then, D. Felipe as Prince of Asturias married a commoner who worked as a journalist and whose grandfather was a taxi driver, so who knows what the future holds?

And also King Juan Carlos's elder sister married the Spanish Viscount de la Torre.

I believe that Don Jaime and Infanta Elena knew each other since the late 80's.

And, before that,


1. Sisters of Alfonso XIII


  • María de Las Mercedes, Princess of Asturias married Prince Carlos of Bourbon-Two Sicilies.
  • Infanta María Teresa married Prince Ferdinand of Bavaria.
2. Sisters of Alfonso XII


  • Infanta Isabel married Prince Gaetan, Count of Girgenti.
  • Infanta María del Pilar never married. but was intended to marry the son of emperor Napoleon III. who was nonetheless killed in war.
  • Infanta María de la Paz married Prince Ludwig Ferdinand of Bavaria.
  • Infanta Eulalia married Infante Antonio, Duke of Galliera.

True, although the majority of senior royals in King Juan Carlos' and his parents' generation did at least marry non-royals. Of course, an important distinction is that those marriages were treated as unequal and therefore morganatic.

I believe her husband was a commoner. He was created a count only a month before he married the infanta.
