John (Juan), Prince of Asturias (1478-1497) was the son and heir of Queen Isabella I and King Ferdinand V. If Juan had lived to be the sovereign, would he have been King Juan III or King Juan I?

Juan III as Juan II of Castile was the grandfather of Queen Isabella I of Castile.

I posted this on the "who outranks who" thread but maybe someone on here might know the answer:smile:

"Does the King of Spain ever use the style His Most Catholic Majesty awarded by Pope Alexander VI in 1493? Or indeed is he ever referred to formally as Rex Catholicissimus Most Catholic King?"

Thank you:flowers:

An Ard Ri 08-22-2019 06:09 PM

No that style is not used by the King of Spain.

The day the King washed the feet of the poor in the Palace
 
I have just discovered an ancient tradition (which no longer exists) of the Kings of Spain.

Since Ferdinand III of Castile, whom they called "the Holy One", instituted the ceremony in the thirteenth century, every Holy Thursday kings used to wash the feet of a dozen poor people, imitating the act of Jesus Christ with their apostles before the Last Supper.

The ceremony, with some variations, had been held almost without interruption until the 20th century. As ABC reported in 1911, the poor were chosen by lot and their names were published in newspapers at the time. To be "so marked at the mercy", they had to meet various conditions, such as being over 60 years old, poor in solemnity and not suffering from any contagious disease.

I've never heard of that tradition. Did the monarchs of other countries do this too? In which countries was this tradition?

Since all monarchies in Europe at a certain time were "roman Catholic" they all did it as far as I know. It is a sign that the King, like Christ, is ready to serve his people..
Im not sure when it was dropped in the UK but now the queen gives "maundy money" to pensioners, in lieu of the feet washing.

Thanks for the information. I didn't really know this tradition.
I've learned a lot in this forum and today I learned one more thing. :smile:

All English monarchs washed the feet of the poor on Maundy Thursday at Westminster Abbey. That custom largely stopped in the reign of King Charles II but I have read of Queen Anne washing feet on a few occasions in the very early 18th century.

she was also the last monarch to touch for the Kings Evil?

Curryong 04-09-2020 06:58 PM

Yes, as did the Old and Young Pretenders (Stuarts) apparently, in exile on the Continent in Roman Catholic countries.

The pope is still continuing this tradition (but probably not this year).
