I read French, but not Spanish, and I am interested in hearing what Spanish posters on this board (Manuel?) think about this story on Noblesse & Royautes: http://www.noblesseetroyautes.com/jesus-aguirre-duc-dalbe-1934-2011-lorsque-les-langues-se-delient/
. The gist of the story is that, shortly after the fourth anniversary of the death of the Duchess of Alba, several of her children broke silence to express their intense dislike of their mother's second husband, Jesus Aguirre y Ortiz de Zarazate. They accuse him of being (among other things) mean, domineering and manipulative, and of making them feel they should be grateful to him for having saved their family fortunes through good management. Some commenters on the site responded that the six children of the Duchess showed at the time of her third marriage that they cared primarily for their inheritances, not for their mother. Another interesting point made in the article is that the late Duke was close to Princess Irene of Greece before he met and married the Duchess. I'm curious how this story was received in Spain. Thanks in advance for any feedback from our posters there.
