Juan Carlos was the better looking one, Alfonso (who was also blond) resembled the Countess of Barcelona in looks.

Alfonsito's tragic death is very sad story. Officially he should have shot himself while cleaning a revolver. There are rumours that this revolver was a present by General Franco.

Right after his accidental death another version found it's way into the press. According to a witness it should have been his brother Juan-Carlos who was playing with the revolver and shot his younger brother through an oversight.

Regards,

Gabriella
