Infanta Alicia of Spain, Dowager Duchess of Calabria[1] (née: Princess of Bourbon-Parma; given names: Alicia Maria Teresa Francesca Luisa Pia Anna Valeria; born 13 November 1917)[1] is a daughter of Elias, Duke of Parma, and Archduchess Maria Anna of Austria.[1] Alicia was Duchess of Calabria through her marriage to Infante Alfonso, Duke of Calabria (1901–1964).[1] She has borne the title of Infanta of Spain from 1936,[2] and takes part in some of the activities that the Spanish Royal Family organises.[3] She was born in Vienna, Austria-Hungary.[1]

Marriage and issue

Alicia married Infante Alfonso, Duke of Calabria (30 November 1901 3 February 1964), her second cousin and the eldest child and son of Prince Carlos of Bourbon-Two Sicilies and his wife Mercedes, Princess of Asturias, on 16 April 1936 in Vienna, Austria.[1] Alicia and Alfonso had three children:[1]


Alicia is the heir general of the kings of Navarre, as well as of Edward the Confessor and David I of Scotland.[4] If the marriage of Maria Beatrice of Savoy to her uncle is deemed illegal, then Alicia, as heir of Maria Beatrice's next sister, would be the Jacobite pretender to the thrones of England, Scotland, France and Ireland. However, English and Scots law in 1688 (after which point Jacobites must admit it to be static, as changes would require the approval of the monarch, who they hold is not the person actually on the throne) stated that a marriage contracted outside of the realms was not challenged if it was legal in its own land; thus, since Maria Beatrice and her mother's brother Francis IV, Duke of Modena, received the pope's consent to marry, Alicia is not considered a claimant by the Jacobites.[5]
