It was informative to learn that as a widow, two possible men for Infanta Isabel to marry were Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria and Prince Arnulf of Bavaria.

Prince Gaetan of the Two Sicilies, Count of Girgenti (12 January 1846, Naples, Two Sicilies – 26 November 1871, Lucerne, Switzerland) was the seventh child of Ferdinand II of the Two Sicilies and his wife Maria Theresa of Austria. Gaetan was a member of the House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies and consort to Isabel, Princess of Asturias, twice the recognized heir presumptive to the throne of Spain. Through this union, Gaetan was created an Infante of Spain.

Gaetan and Isabella's marriage proved unhappy. For two years, Gaetan traveled throughout Europe visiting relatives in major cities including Vienna. A troubled and depressed man, Gaetan suffered from weak health and epilepsy. He had unsuccessfully attempted suicide at least once before shooting himself in the head in his hotel room in Lucerne, Switzerland. Isabel returned to Spain in 1874 and did not remarry. Their brief union produced no issue.

Sadly the marriage was rather unhappy and the Count shot himself in the head in November 1871 aged just 25.
The union was also childless and Isabel returned to Spain.

Twenty-five is extremely young for a man, whether Royal or not, to take his life. Was any male relative aware of Prince Gaetano's hardships?
