I believe the Infanta doña Eulalia found a kindred spirit in her uncle and father-in-law the Infante don Antonio.  She certainly had more and better contact with him than with her own absent father.

While reading the thread about Queen Mercedes of Spain, I got interested in her family. Could anybody show me paintings or photos of her siblings?

- Maria Isabel (1848-1919)
- Maria Amelia (1851-1870)
- Maria Christina (1852-1879)
- Fernando (1859-1873)
- Antonio (1866-1930)

Maria Amelia, Maria Christina and Fernando died much too young. What was the cause of their early death?

die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

Ali's illegitimate daughter?

"Pip Scott-Ellis was not so politically committed: she hated the 'Reds' but was confused by being in love with a possibly homosexual Orleans prince who was flying in Spain with Hitler's Condor Legion. Until 1995 hardly anyone knew that this adventurous 21-year-old daughter of Lord Howard de Walden had worked as a nurse in a field hospital behind the Nationalist lines, close to the last two major battles of the war, at Teruel and the Ebro. Then her voluminous diary was discovered, edited by Raymond Carr, and published under the title The Chances of Death. This prompted her rotter of a former husband, Jose Luis de Vilallonga, to declare that the diary was a forgery and that his deceased wife was in fact the illegitimate daughter of her Orleans boyfriend's father. Part of the diary has recently been on display at the Spanish Civil War exhibition at the Imperial War Museum."

The daughters were spitting images of Luisa Ferdinanda - quite scary.
