As far as i know the Titles now holed by the second son of the late Duke of Alba where inherited by her from her mther's Family who i believe was an only chil. Not sure but i think i had read somewhere thast this was an request from the late Duchess's maternal grandfather that there should be again an own House of Hijar.

Thanks, that makes sense. I looked up the various titles of the late duchess grandfather (the title 'duque de Lécera' was split of one generation earlier and is now carried by the descendants of his uncle).

Alfonso de Silva y Fernández de Córdoba (1877-1955):
xvi duque de Híjar,
xv duque de Aliaga,
x marqués de San Vicente del Barco,
xvii conde de Palma del Río,
xvi conde de Aranda,
xi conde de Salvatierra,
xvii marqués de Almenara,
xxii conde de Ribadeo

Alfonso Martínez de Irujo y Fitz-James Stuart (1950):
xviii duque de Híjar
xviii Duque de Aliaga (1954 - 2015; ceded to his eldest son)
xix Marqués de Almenara (2013 - 2015; ceded to his younger son)
Marqués de Orani
Conde de Aranda
Conde de Ribadeo
Conde de Guimerá
Conde de Palma del Río

Technically she doesn't have the title yet.

In the United Kingdom it is customary for a new peer or baronet to begin using the title following his predecessor's funeral, even if his succession has not yet been legally recognized. Is there a similar custom in Spain?

In Spain the scuession to a Title has to be confirmed by a Minister.

I don't know, but my understanding is that, in the UK, succession to a peerage is in fact automatic, meaning that the title doesn't go vacant when the last holder is deceased and there is a living successor. Having the successor's name entered in the Roll of the Peerage is a condition not for succession properly, but rather to legally enjoy the rights, privileges and precedence of the peerage. A peer whose name is not entered in the roll is still a peer, but cannot, for example, use his title or be cited by his title in official documents.



In Spain, on the other hand, the title remains legally vacant (unlike in the UK) until a Real Carta de Sucesión is issued in the King's name by ministerial order published in the State Gazette. To have such letter issued, the person who believes to be the successor has to file a petition with the Ministry of Justice and pay the appropriate succession tax .



Usually, when a person is the immediate successor under the regular order (since 2006, according to equal primogeniture), that should be a straightforward process, but that is not the case of Tamara Falcó.



Since her father expressed a desire in his will to distribute his titles among his descendants, reserving the main title to the firstborn, it is unlikely that Tamara's siblings will contest her succession, but, if I understand it correct, Spanish nobiliary law allows for a period of time during which the siblings (or any person who believes him/herself to be of better right) could do so. Is that perhaps the reason why the process takes so long? Tamara's father passed away early this year and the title is still vacant today.

Her older brother should also be the next Marquess de Castel Moncayo.

The Duke of Arjona was invited to the Spanish TV show "El show de Bertín" and talked about his twins Luis and Amina:

"I get along very well with my children. I have a lot of trust with them. I have given them the trust that I wasn't given. I have given them too much freedom, but that has made them more responsible", he said. Amina studies Language, Culture and Communication at Warwick University, Luis studies History and International Relations at the University of Exeter:

It is already official: Tamara Falcó will become Marquise of Griñón in 30 days.

The Official State Gazette published its application on Tuesday, almost seven months after the death of Carlos Falcó.

As the article says, she will become the Marquise in 30 days if no one else files a competing claim to the title in this period. That is obviously not expected to happen, but it is not a done deal yet.

Spanish nobiliary law is oddly complicated.
