This is the palace in question. The palace was for sale because of the Spanish state's claims. The family can still challenge the court's decision.

Here we go again. Why is it that Countries want to erase their History. What happen are fact's don't push them away,learn and teach about them ,so this part will not be repeated again. Make a Museum of History and teach what can happen if one walk's around with their eye closed and don't care. There is enough blame to go around,it never is just one alone.

In what way is Spain erasing history? Did they already indicate what they are going to do with the (rather nice) palace?

If I understand it correctly, the family put it up for sale after the Spanish government required them to hand it back to the state; which was many years after Franco (as head of state) donated it to himself and his family... Now, apparently, the judge has agreed that it is indeed property of the State. So, now it's up to the State to decide what to do with it. Seems the right course of action.

He died at the age of 56 Jaime Carvajal y Hoyos, husband of Xandra Falcó.
Xandra Falcó was the daughter of the Marquis de Griñón.
He was the son of Jaime Carvajal y Urquijo, former president of the Urquijo bank, and Isabel Hoyos, niece of the Duchess of Alba.

Jaime Carvajal y Hoyos, XVII Marquis of Almodóvar del Río (he received the title by cession from his mother), was the son of Jaime de Carvajal y Urquijo, Marquis of Isasi, and María Isabel de Hoyos y Martínez de Irujo, Marchioness of Hoyos.

He was married to Xandra Falcó, Marchioness of Mirabel, and daughter of the recently deceased Marquis of Griñón.

Konstantin of Bulgaria wirh his wife María García de la Rasilla and Cristina of Bourbon Two Sicilies withe her husband attend the funeral chapel

The family of the deceased is very close to the Royal Family, and King Felipe and Queen Letizia could go to the chapel tomorrow.

What was the reason of his death? He was still quite young.

Yes Victoria will have been Felipe's first girlfriend in her school days.

Which Duchess of Alba? The last Duchess of Alba was an only child; so, she could not have had any nieces.

I think it's appalling that Franco grabbed the estate. Decisions like that give Top People a bad image.

You've got the right Duchess of Alba in mind; she was an aunt by marriage! I am quite sure her children's cousins would consider her their aunt; so that would make them her nieces and nephews (by marriage) - one of them is the deceased mother who unfortunately will have to bury her son (instead of the other way around).

The deceased grandmother was María Victoria Martínez de Irujo y Artazcoz, Dama de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Zaragoza, sister of Luis Martínez de Irujo y Artazcoz, Caballero de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Zaragoza; husband of the duchess of Alba.

Luiz had 6 brothers and 3 sisters (see below), of which his eldest sister María Victoria already had 9 children, so it seems the duchess of Alba was an aunt to many; and a great-aunt to even more.

Carlos Martínez de Irujo y Artazcoz 1911-1937
María Victoria Martínez de Irujo y Artazcoz, Dama de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Zaragoza 1912-2012
Ignacio Martínez de Irujo y Artazcoz, Duque de Sotomayor 1913-2011
Francisco Javier Martínez de Irujo y Artazcoz, Hermano de la Santa Pontificia y Real Hermandad del Refugio y Piedad de Madrid 1916-1969
Pedro Martínez de Irujo y Artazcoz 1917-1938
Luis Martínez de Irujo y Artazcoz, Caballero de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Zaragoza 1919-1972
Ana María Martínez de Irujo y Artazcoz 1921-2005
María Cristina Martínez de Irujo y Artazcoz 1923
Jaime Martínez de Irujo y Artazcoz 1925-1993
José María Martínez de Irujo y Artazcoz 1928-1994
