I know it is Wikipedia but the english article on Infante D. Afonso, Duke of Oporto, claims that his engagement to ADss Valerie of Habsburg was publicized but short time later she refused to marry him, allegedelly due to the influence of Infanta D.Maria Theresa, ADss Karl-Ludwig, who nurtured the idea that Valerie would be the ideal bride for her widower brother D.Miguel II.

In the end she did not marry any of the cousins..

Is there any proof of this engagement to D.Afonso and was it ever made public ?




Still no news ?
