Forty-two years after her death in exile in Lausanne and 26 after her remains returned to her "beloved Spain," Queen Victoria Eugenia will be moved shortly to the Pantheon of the Kings of the Monastery of El Escorial.

As is required, when the grandmother of King Juan Carlos returned to Spain, her coffin was placed in the hall of the Pantheon, known as the "rotting room" where the remains of members of the royal family have to stay 25 years before be transferred to the Pantheon of Kings or Infantes.
Queen Victoria Eugenia has already exceeded that time last year, ABC has been told, that members of the House of the King this week finalized the details of the transfer with the Augustinian monks, who are guarding the Monastery of El Escorial and royal tombs.

Victoria Eugenie paid for a contingent of Spanish nurses to be trained in England and established leagues against cancer and tuberculosis.
Victoria Eugenie's uncle, King Edward VII of England, threw Victoria a lavish coming out party in November of 1904.

Queen Victoria Eugenie opened Madrid Horticultural Exhibition.


Queen Victoria Eugenie participated in a Palm Sunday procession in 1931 on the night before the fall of the Spanish monarchy.

A portrait of Ena, painted by László, will be auctioned at Christie's in the end of April

http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/p...8-details.aspx

A similar portrait exists, probably from the same sitting

(At the same auction portraits of other Spanish royals will be sold as well, plus a beautiful wedding veil, worn by Infanta María de la Paz)

Was it announced who was selling them or is that kept private?

The daughters of Teresa of Bavaria, Myrta and Sonia Márquez, are auctioning part of the estate of their aunt Cristina of Bavaria, Countess of Odiel. They are great-granddaughters of Prince Ferdinand of Bavaria (son of Infanta Paz) and Infanta Maria Teresa of Spain.

Was it necessary for Victoria Eugenie to give up her rights to the British throne upon her engagement and marriage to King Alfonso XIII of Spain?

As I understand it, the issue was that she converted to Catholicism, which, at the time, would have debarred her from inheriting the British throne ... not that she would have done anyway, because there were so many people ahead of her, but it took away her right to a place in the line of succession. So it was that that was the issue, not her marriage to the King of Spain per se.

Indeed, by converting to Catholicism - and also by marrying to a Catholic - Ena automatically lost her succession rights to the British Throne; this was also acknowledged in a provision of the marriage treaty between Spain and the United Kingdom which settled the terms of the marriage.
Ena didn't renounce to her succession rights: she simply lost those rights and it was a direct effecct of the 1701 Act of Settlement.

By marrying. a Catholiic, she was automatically disqualified from succeeding to the British throne. On top of that, she converted to Catholicism herself, being therefore doubly disqualified.
