Spanish Line of Succession
Maybe I'm over looking it, :bang: but I can't find it. Can someone list the line for the crown of Spain for me. I was told that Prince William was in the line. Thanks

Nope, no Prince William.

According to Wikipedia:

(1) HRH The Prince of Asturias (Felipe; b. 1968)
(2) HRH Infanta Leonor (b. 2005)
(3) HRH Infanta Sofía (b. 2007)
(4) HRH The Duchess of Lugo (Infanta Elena; b. 1963)
(5) Felipe de Marichalar y Borbón (b. 1998)
(6) Victoria de Marichalar y Borbón (b. 2000)
(7) HRH The Duchess of Palma de Mallorca (Infanta Cristina; b. 1965)
(8) Juan Urdangarín y de Borbón (b. 1999)
(9) Pablo Urdangarín y de Borbón (b. 2000)
(10) Miguel Urdangarín y de Borbón (b. 2002)
(11) Irene Urdangarín y de Borbón (b. 2005)

"Section 57 of the Spanish Constitution provides that 'The Crown of Spain shall be inherited by the successors of H. M. Juan Carlos I de Borbón.' To date, the Spanish government has not seen fit to clarify whether this provision includes anyone beyond the descendants of King Juan Carlos. 'Successor' is not the same as 'descendant' and can be understood to mean such successors as brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, cousins, etc" :flowers:

The line of succession to the throne of Spain according to the Spanish constitution.


Article 57
  1. The Crown of Spain is hereditary in the successors of H.M. Don Juan Carlos I of Bourbon, rightful heir to the historical dynasty. Succession on the throne will follow the regular order of birthright and representation, and the line before subsequent ones is always preferred; on the same line, the degree closest to the most remote; to the same degree, the male to the woman, and in the same sex, the older person to the least.
  2. The Crown Prince, from birth or since the event that gives rise to the call, will have the dignity of Prince of Asturias and the other titles traditionally linked to the successor of the Crown of Spain.
  3. Extinguished all lines called in law, the General Courts will provide succession in the Crown in a way that best suits the interests of Spain.
  4. Those who, having the right to succession on the throne, marry against the express prohibition of the King and the General Courts, will be excluded in succession to the Crown on their own and their descendants.
  5. Abdications and waivers and any doubts of fact or law that occur in the order of succession to the Crown shall be resolved by an organic law.
