Thanks for the tread maybe we can change/add to the title the event of the centenary birthday anniversary of Don Juan that will be celebrated by the SRF on June 20th this year.

Remind me closer to that date and I will ammend the thread title to coincide with his centenary.

A 2:24:00 long video from the funeral of Don Juan in 1993. Very interesting:

On May 14, 1977, in a simple and brief ceremony held in the family environment of the Zarzuela Palace, he officially renounced his dynastic rights, handing over to his son the leadership of the Family and Royal House of Spain. For the rest of his life he would retain the title of Count of Barcelona, a use that would be ratified by Royal Decree of November 6, 1987.

Thank you for the photos!

Her last name was de Borbón y Orleans (it was her half-brother Infante Alfonso who adopted Borbón-Dos Sicilias as his family name). For instance, she is styled Doña María de las Mercedes de Borbón y Orleans in the 1987 royal decree on the styles of the Royal Family.
2. Igual título y tratamiento recibirá la madre de Su Majestad el Rey, don Juan Carlos I de Borbón, Doña María de las Mercedes de Borbón y Orleans.
Similarly, at the time of her birth, she was styled as a Princess of the House of Bourbon, rather than as Princess of the Two Sicilies or Princess of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, as she was a member of the extended royal family of Spain.

That is the reason King Juan Carlos I's full name is Juan Carlos Alfonso Victor Maria de Borbón y Borbón, rather than y de Borbón-Dos Sicilias.
