November 22, 1975 Enthronement of Juan Carlos I of Spain.

In 1969 General Franco officially named him his successor. He was given the title Prince of Spain (not Prince of Asturias) at this time.



November 20 1975 General Franco died. And two days later JC was enthroned.

December 23, 1910 birth of Princess María de las Mercedes of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Countess of Barcelona.


Maria was born in Madrid. Her father Prince Carlos of Bourbon two Sicilies was an Infante of Spain. Her mother Princess Louise of Orleans was a daughter of Prince Philippe, Count of Paris. Her maternal aunts included Queen Amelie of Portugal (mother of Manuel II). At birth she was granted the rank and precedence of an Infanta though her title was Princess of Boubon Two-Sicilies. Her parents had four children, a son and three daughters. She was their third child and second daughter. Her mother was her father's second wife. Her father originally had been married to Mercedes, Princess of Asturius, a daughter of Alfonso XII. Maria had an older half sister and brother (there was a second half brother but he died in infancy before Maria was born).

When the Spanish republic forced them into exile they moved to Cannes and later Paris. She would study art at the Louvre.


In January 1935 she attended the wedding of Princess Beatriz of Spain, the daughter of Alfonso XIII (Alfonso was the younger brother of Maria's father's first wife). It was at the wedding (the bride was her second cousin) she got to know again Beatriz's brother, Juan, Count of Barcelona. Juan was the 5th of 6 living children of Alfonso and Victoria Eugenie. But by 1933 his two living older brothers had renounced their right to the throne (one for marriage, and the other due to being deaf). A third older brother had been stillborn. Juan was expected to succeed his father to the throne.

The couple were married October 12 of that year in Rome. And she became the Countess of Barcelona.

Her husband was constantly at odds with Franco. Franco eventually would name her son Juan Carlos as successor instead of her husband. He refused to allow the family re-entry into Spain. When in 1949 her father became terminally ill she was denied the right to come home to Spain to visit him. It is said she never forgave Franco for never saying goodbye to her father.

The family lived comfortably in Portugal. She represented the Spanish royal family at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

In 1976 her and her husband returned to live in Spain. She had helped negotiate peace between her husband and their son after Franco had named Juan Carlos his heir. In 1977 her husband officially renounced his rights to the throne and was allowed to keep his Count of Barcelona title.

Her husband died in 1993.

Maria was in ill health for the last 20 years of life. She did attend events when able like the weddings of her granddaughters and baptisms. She died of a heart attack in the canary islands on January 2, 2000. She was buried in El Escorial with the same rites of a Spanish queen.




Her and her husband had four children:

-Pilar: Duchess of Badajoz. She was married to Don Luis Gómez-Acebo y Duque de Estrada, 2nd Viscount of La Torre, with whom she had five children. She died in January this year and her husband died in 1991.

-Juan Carlos: succeeded the throne as Juan Carlos I. Married Princess Sofia of Greece and Denmark and had three children including the current King Felipe. He abdicated the throne in favor of his son in 2014.

-Margarita: Duchess of Soria (this is a title for life) but she also holds the Duchy of Hermani which she inherited from the first duke who was her cousin. She married Carlos Emilio Juan Zurita y Delgado with whom she had 2 children.

-Alfonso: sadly he died in an accidental shooting accident involving his older brother at the age of 14.

No, her title was Princess of the House of Bourbon. Her and her siblings' acts of birth bore the title HRH Prince(ss) of the House of Bourbon:

Acta de nacimiento y presentación de S. A. R. la Princesa de la Casa de Borbón que ha dado á luz la Serenísima Señora Infanta Doña Luisa Francisca de Orleans.
https://www.boe.es/datos/pdfs/BOE//1...0689-00691.pdf

Here is an article regarding their titles:
Infantes de España

The additional "-Two Sicilies" was adopted by her half-brother Infante Alfonso after proclaiming himself the head of the Royal House of the Two Sicilies. His sister and half-sisters did not follow his example.

Juan was only "Prince of Asturias" at the time of his wedding. Although his brothers has renounced their rights, his father remained the pretender to the throne until his deathbed abdication in 1941.

Mariana was the daughter of Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand III and Maria Anna of Spain who was a daughter of Philip III of Spain.

Maria Anna had acted a Regent for her husband during the Thirty Years' War and later her daughter Mariana acted as Spanish queen Regent.

December 26, 1771 birth of Julia Clary, Queen of Spain from 1808-1813

Not sure this is the right thread for her. But seemed to belong here more then France and we don't have an Italian one.

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/...photo=76687301

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julie_...ulie_Clary.jpg

Marie Julie Clary was born in Marseilles France. She was the daughter of Francois Clary by his second wife Francoise Somis. Her parents had nine children of whom Julie was seventh born. She had four older half siblings from her father's first marriage. Her youngest sibling was Desiree who was a former fiance of Napoleon, and later Queen consort of Sweden. Her father was a wealthy silk merchant of Irish descent.

August 1, 1794 she was married to Joseph Bonaparte. Joseph was the older brother of Napoleon. The bride was 23, and the groom was 26.

In 1804 her husband was raised to the rank of Imperial Prince when his brother crowned himself emperor. Julie carried the train of the empress at the coronation, with her sister in laws. Julie preferred to stay away from court though and preferred a quiet life with her family at Chateau Mortefontaine.


Her husband was crowned King of Naples in 1806. Julie lived apart from her husband already and chosen to remain at her chateau. She didn't join her husband in Naples until 1808. But she was treated as a queen at the imperial court when she was there.

In 1808 her husband became King of Spain and she was the first Spanish queen who was not of royal birth. Though she was queen of Spain, she chose never to even visit the country. She had returned to her chateau in France after leaving Naples.

But she did serve her husband at the French court. She was considered the Spanish ambassador to her brother in law's court. She also kept her husband informed with what was going on in France when he was away. The Spanish referred to her as their absent queen.


In 1813 Napoleon was defeated at the Battle of Vitoria. Julie had been giving refugee during the war both to her sister Desiree who was Crown Princess of Sweden, and to her sister in law Catherine. In return when the allies took France in 1814, Desiree repaid the favor giving her shelter at her home in Paris. She went to Switzerland eventually but when Napoleon returned she was among those who welcomed him to court.


After Napoleon was defeated for good her husband chose to buy an estate and move to New Jersey. Again she chose not to accompany her husband, instead taking her daughters and moving to Frankfurt. Her sister had wished to bring her to Sweden but her brother in law thought it a a bad idea.


In 1821 after a time in Brussels she settled in Florence at Palazzo Serristori. She did not associate with any French exiles while she was there. She remained close to her sister until Desiree became Queen and moved to Sweden.


Her husband joined her in Florence in 1840 where he died in 1844. She would die eight months later April 7, 1845 at 73. She was buried next to her husband at the Basilica di Santa Croce (her daughter Charlotte would eventually be as well). Joseph would be moved to France in 1862 by Napoleon III to rest next to Napoleon, but Julie remains in Italy.

Her and Joseph had three daughters:

-Julie: died in infancy

-Zénaïde: she was married to her cousin Charles Lucien Jules Laurent Bonaparte, 2nd Prince of Canino and Musignano (son of her Uncle Lucien). They had 12 children, 8 of whom reached adulthood.

-Charlotte: she married Napoléon Louis Bonaparte, a son of her Uncle Louis Bonaparte (king of Holland) and older brother of Napoleon III. Charlotte was an artist. She died at the age of 36 with no children though she reportedly died in childbirth.
