Retroactivity of spanish titles
Could Maria del Carmen, as eldest daughter, challenge her younger brother Francisco for the title of Marquis de Villaverde, which he inherited from his father in 1998 ?
Francisco also holds the title of Señor de Meirás which IIRC his grand-mother, Franco's widow, wanted him to inherit .
Did M-C and Francisco's mother renounce her rights to her mother's title so that Francisco could receive it ?
Maybe then she is just making clear what she would like to happen to the title in the future, maybe claiming has made he consider these matters. It is of course LAs perogrative to claim but he may be guided by his mother's express wish. Particularly as he is unlikely to use the title himself.
No idea about Carmen's intention to pass her title to her granddaughter. I have always heard her claiming the title for herself.
After her death, it will be to LA to decide whether he claims the title for himself or allows her daughter to do it.
I have read the minister of Justice has already signed the order confirming her the title and that it will be soon published in the BOE.
Is Carmen's intention to pass the ducal title this year when her own succession is confirmed or merely after her own death?
Will Luis Alfonso may have many titles as "King of France" to create none by custom would be for his daughter. And I think it's assumed he will not be claiming the Franco title? So Eugenia would be the heir and it would give her and her husband a title.
Interesting article, but it is the first time I read about Carmen's intention.
And, if LA is the "King of France", he has as many titles as he wishes to create. No need to use a "foreign title" for her daughter.
