She looked so much like her grandmother Infanta Antonia of Portugal...In nature as troublesome as her too.

On The Franco-Iberian Royals Message Board there is an interesting story about "something" between King Alfonso XIII and Princess Elizabeta in 1913. It also  suggests why Missy refuse to allow Ileana to marry Alfonso, the Prince of Asturias.

In Pilar Eyre s book about Ena exist an "episode" about Alfonso having an affaire with Elizabeta. I doubt of Eyre┤s historical accuracy, but knowing how they were....who knows.!

Yup and the name is "Ena" . An awful book i must say, very cheesy and full of cheap erotic (cough cough PORNO) stuff. Plus, a lot of historical innacuracies and bad labeled images.

Here the cover

The only good thing of that book are the images included. A lot and very nice ones.

Really ? It seem to indicate that it is only a "historical novel". If that is the case, then it should be seen as the likes of "The Other Boleyn Girl".

Also interested that historical fiction do not usually have illustrations. Maybe a Spanish custom ?

As far as ascertaining the truth or otherwise of this suggestion, the starting point must be whether Elizabeth and Alfonso actually met in 1913.

If they did not, the story is likely to be baseless.

The thing is that Pilar Eyre believe she s an historical accurate writter, but the true she isnt. I dont know about other authors putting  illustrations in their fictional books, but as far as i know, Pilar always add tons of images in her books.

The cover of Pilar Eyre's book clearly states that it is a novel.

According to Ana de Sagrera's book "Ena y Bee", which is a reliable source, Elisabeta did visit the Spanish court and met Alfonso XIII. The book states that he was charmed by her, but it doesn't state that they had an affair.

I think Elisabetta did flirted with the king on her visit and seen dancing with him, but I don't think there was an affair.

The lady closest to the camera was Elisabetta's Aunt Bee (Baby Bee) who did kept an eye on her during Elisabetta's trip to the court of Spain.
