Who is the bridegoom ? Sorry if that sounded silly.  :-[

I wonder where is the studio. From the logo in the corner it seems to be the same one that did Elisabeth ("Wooley") and Sophie ("Tiny") of Greece. If that is true, that would be in Paris.

The wedding took place in Paris on april the 29th 1931. I suppose that the studio is Harcourt ???

Harold ACTON has written two books:
1)The Bourbons of Naples 1737-1825 (in english). There are translations in italian and in french: I Borboni di Napoli 1737-1825 and Les Bourbons de Naples 1737-1825.
2) The last Bourbons de Naples 1825-1861 translated in italian : Gli ultimi Borboni di Napoli 1825-1861.
(No translation in french).
Other books:
Jean-Paul Garnier: Le dernier roi de Naples (french only)
Ferrucio Ferrara: Francesco I e Ferdinando II (italian)
Sandro Castronuovo: I cinque Borbone, la dinastia napoletana dal 1734 al 1860 (italian)

I presume it must be Beatrice of Clinchamp-Bellegarde (1883-?) married in London August 6, 1906 with Henri-Gabriel RICHARD (1865-1942), son of Blanche of Marconnay, the morganatic spouse of Prince Pasquale of Bourbon Two Sicilies, count of Bari.
That Richard was actually adopted and acknowledged by Prince Pasquale but the adoption was subsequently annulled by the French justice after several lawsuits between him and the Royal House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies.
Henri-Gabriel RICHARD was first called "Richard of Bourbon" and then "Richard de Marconnay".
He was known as the "Count of Bari"in the Parisian high society.



Xavier :

Princes René, Sixte and Xavier of Bourbon Parma :

I think there are two mistakes with these two last pictures:
1."Xavier" is in reality FELIX.
2. The three princes are, in my opinion,René, XAVIER (not Sixte) and FELIX, not Xavier

Count Guiramov,

I don't believe the second one is Alice. Firstly she doesn't resemble her in features. Secondly, the style of the dress is the middle of the 1860s, the lady looks at least 30 years old, and as we know Alice was a girl in the middle of the 1860s, being born in 1849.

Anyway thanks for sharing Marguerite's picture.

I think you are quite right, Sveta. Here a pic of Granduchessa di Toscana, Alicia di Borbone Parma.

You may be right....Indeed, Harold Acton has written, in his book "The Bourbons of Naples" (chapter IV):"On the 13 of june 1747, the Court happened to be in Portici when a new birth was expected..." Nevertheless, other authors have don Filippo come into the world in Naples. In another text, I have read that seven children out thirteen were born in Portici.
Don Filippo lived recluse in Capodimonte till his death. He was out twice a year to show people he was really stupid. But the poor boy with no intelligence was gifted with a strong sexual appetite.
Sir William Hamilton said "on several occasions, the prince has escaped the vigilance his guards. He grabbed the ladies who passed through the corridors. More than one has been rescued from his embraces in the critical moment."

Prince Filippo of Naples and Sicily, Infante of Spain, baptised Filippo Antonio Gennaro Pasquale Francesco de Paula of Naples and Sicily. He was the Duke of Calabria and eldest son of Charles III of Spain.

Born at Portici he was the heir to the Kingdom of Naples and Sicily but was excluded from the succession due to being [rather crudly put these days] an imbecile; does anyone know what exactly was wrong with him? when it was discovered? also any stories would be much appreciated =]

Don Filippo di Borbone, duca di Calabria, royal prince of Naples et Sicily, eldest son of Don Carlo VII, king of Naples et Sicily (future king Don Carlos III of Spain in 1759), born in Royal Palace of Naples (not in Portici), was totally imbecile from birth..
But it was said that the child had become idiot after a seizure of epilepsy: his nurse would have given the breast after a violent quarrell !!! (in Los diamantes de la corona, of Juan Balanso, in spanish...)
When his father went to Madrid with his second son Don Carlo, future prince of Asturias et later King Don Carlos IV of Spain, Don Filippo stayed in Napoli. He was left to the care of  his brother, the new King Ferdinand IV, the third son of Don Carlos III.
 Don Filippo di Borbone died in Royal Palace of Napoli on September 19, 1777 at the age of 30 years.The Duke of Fernando Nunez, in his "Historia de Carlos III", wrote that this poor prince liked much music...


French Royals / Re: King Louis Philippe and his family

Louis-Philippe's family received the title of Royal Highness before Louis-Philippe's reign.

They were Serene Highness until the 21 september 1824.

The 21 september 1824, King Louis XVIII accorded the title of Royal Highness to Louis-Philippe and to all his children, and to Louis-Philippe's sister Adélaïde.

The title of Royal Highness was granted to Louis-Philippe, duke of Orléans, not by Louis XVIII but Charles X, September 21, 1824, five days after the death of Louis XVIII which occured September 16, 1824.
Louis XVIII hated too much his cousin Orléans to make him  such an honor...

HI&RH Princess Isabel of Orléans Braganca will marry Alexander Count zu Stolberg - Stolberg In Rio de Janeiro today.

In Brazil, only Dom Luiz,  the Head of House and imperial and his brother prince  Dom Bertrand, heir apparent, are " imperial and royal highness".
The other princes an princesses de Orleans e Bragança are "royal highness",  by vertue of an agreement concluded in 1909 between the head of the House of Orléans, Philippe, duke of Orléans et his cousin, Count of Eu, imperial princess Isabel of Brazil's husband. Before 1909, they were simply "highness"  provided that ... the marriage of their parents was "equal"...The children born from a marriage unequal were untitled. They were: N... of Orleans e Bragança
