News from the Spanish Nobility


If you have answers, please help by responding to the unanswered posts.
I also don't think that King Felipe has created any new titles during his almost decade long reign so far!
I found a mention of it in the magazine I'm posting links from. So far Felipe's contribution to the ranks of nobility is still zero. Not a single title created since he took over the role of King.

Here's an article about the relation between King Felipe and the noble families in Spain a few months ago, hope your browser can translate it. I use both Edge and Chrome mouse-over-and-right-click to read them in English for the link below:

The King did not receive the Diputación de la Grandeza or Patrimonio Nacional at Christmas

Except:

"For years, King Juan Carlos kept a tradition every Christmas. Days before December 25, he received in audience the heads of two entities with a close relationship with the King's House: National Heritage and the Provincial Council of Grandeur. But last Christmas there were no such hearings.
Monarquía Confidencial has been able to confirm that this past December there were no audiences held on the occasion of Christmas between the king and queen with the heads of both National Heritage and the Diputación de la Grandeza..."
 
I'm not at all surprised by that ,tradition seems to be out the door under the new reign!
 
Of all the recent kings and one queen we had since the 1800s, King Felipe is the most cautious, discrete and minimalistic in terms of pomp and circumstance. King Juan Carlos would honor with titles from people that have done great things in life to benefit the country to even foreign authors. I can't recall the name but one was a Peruvian writer that later married singer Julio Iglesias ex-wife, and she was herself from the Spanish aristocracy in Philippines.

I don't understand why he is so prudent with giving titles.
 
A lot of people are not happy with the above, starting with King Juan Carlos himself since King Felipe also removed titles he gave to the Franco family that, by marriage to Juan Carlos' rival the Duke of Cadiz (Spain) & Anjou (France), also became related to the Borbon Spain branch.
It was not a personal decision of King Felipe... it was a law approved by the Spanish Parliament that led to the withdrawal of those noble titles.

There's a Socialist Government in power in Spain for sometime and they probably think granting titles is outdated.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if no new titles were awarded going forward.

King Juan Carlos was a restoration Monarch and it was a different era.

It was Mario Vargas Llosa.

And he didn't marry Isabel Preysler - they lived in an informal relationship till separating 16 months ago.

He and his former wife Patricia Llosa Urquidi reportedly reconciled.

But it was the decision of the government which King Felipe had to carry out. Not his decision.

Olivia de Borbon has celebrated her 50th birthday (April 6) with a big party in Madrid:


I remember ages ago that Olivia de Borbon, the Duke of Anjou's first cousin and King Felipe's 2nd cousin, was like the top celebrity aristocrat within the Spanish Borbons, outside of the royal family. She had the media after here everywhere. Glad to see she is still looking stunning and happy 50th for her.

After reading the headline below:
The wedding of the Countess of Ricla, youngest daughter of Ignacio Medina Fernández de Córdoba and Princess María da Gloria Orleáns-Braganza Borbón, took place at the Pazo de Oca, owned by the Casa Ducal de Medinaceli foundation, presided over by her father

two things come to mind on her lineage: she is, in matrilineal terms, both descendant to the Imperial family of Brazil and via paternal lines to the Medinaceli, the legitimate royal Burgundy line that was deposed by the cousin Trastamara branch back in the Middle Ages, when Spain was forming up out of independent kingdoms. As the quote from the movie My Fair Lady during the party scene, "her blood is bluer than the Danube".
