13.J8 Prince Antonia of Orleans (4th Duke of Galliera) Infante of Spain 1866 1930 Infanta Marie Eulalia of Spain 1864 1958 See 10.K - Antonia of Orleans (4th Duke of Galliera) inherited the title from a rich Genoa lady (Maria Brignole Sale De Ferrari) via a somewhat convoluted route.

The first Duchess of Galliera (1813 to 1817) was Princess Josephine of Leuchtenberg

The second Duchess of Galliera (1837-1888) was Maria Brignole Sale De Ferrari (1811-1888) wife of the Marquis Raffaele Ferrari (1808-1876) who was created Duke of Galliera by Pope Gregory XVI in 1837, both Maria and her husband Raffaele were extremely rich in their own rights.

They had three children, the oldest died one year of age, their second children Andrea (1831-1847) grew up as friend of Antonia's father Antoine of Orleans (Duke of Montpensier). Maria and Raffaele's youngest son Philip ( 1850 -1917 ) had no interest in titles or enormous wealth and when Maria Brignole Sale De Ferrari died her wealth and title (i.e. Galliera) were passed to Antoine of Orleans (Duke of Montpensier) in view of the friendship between him and her son Andrea.

I haven't located any reference to Antoine of Orleans (Duke of Montpensier) being designated (Duke of Galliera).

In 1895, King Umberto I of Italy recognised Antonio as the heir of the title Duke of Galliera (4th).

The marriage of Prince Alfonso and Princess Beatrice met with disapproval of the Spanish Royal Family and also Prince Alfonso's own father. Prince Alfonso's cousin King King Alfonso XIII of Spain stripped Alfonso of his title of Infante of Spain following his marriage.
Princess Beatrice in 1911/1912 converted to Roman Catholicism and King Alfonso XIII restored all the stripped titles and honours to Prince Alfonso.
