Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mar a Isabella of Spain (6 July 1789 - 13 September 1848) was an Infanta of Spain and the Queen of the Two Sicilies. She was the second wife of Francis I and the youngest surviving daughter of the Spanish king Charles IV and his consort Maria Luisa of Parma. She had twelve children. Mar a Isabel de Borb n y Borb n-Parma was the youngest surviving daughter of King Carlos IV of Spain (1748-1819) and his wife Maria Luisa of Parma (1751-1819), a granddaughter of Louis XV of France. Her paternal grandparents were Charles III of Spain and Maria Amalia of Saxony. Her maternal grandparents were Philip, Duke of Parma and Princess Louise lisabeth of France. Her grandfathers were brothers, both sons of Philip V of Spain and his second wife Elisabeth Farnese. Mar a Isabel's father had a great frame and immense physical strength, and a reputation for performing acts of kindness, but was considered by many to be intellectually sluggish and quite credulous. Even though he kept up the appearance of an absolute, powerful monarch, he never took more than a passive role in the direction of his own kingdom, instead leaving the affairs of government to his wife and prime minister.show more
