The marquis of Ivanrey was the discoverer and first promotor of Marbella and the Costa del Sol, the name given to the coastline of the province of Málaga in Andalusia, southern Spain. It must be remembered that his maternal family, the Scholtz von Hermensdorff was one of the most important of that province

Ivanrey started to promote Marbella in the 1940s, convincing his cousin´s husband, Max Egon von Hohenlohe-Langenburg, to follow him.

Max Egon was a German Protestant prince and apparently his marriage to the Catholic Piedad de Yturbe was something that his family did not approved. They had residences in Madrid, Zarautz  ( a seaside town in the Spanish Basque country) and Biarritz ( in the French Basque country). Ivanrey convinced him Marbella had a better weather and both of them were followed by friends and relatives like the Bismarcks, Rothschilds, Thurn und Taxis, Goldsmiths, Metternich

Alfonso was one of the six children of Max Egon and Piedad de Hohenlohe, and was named after his godfather King Alfonso XIII of Spain. He was the only one of the siblings who did not marry into the Spanish nobility. He was one of the most important promotors of Marbella
