King Fernando VII of Spain and Infante Francisco de Asis's father
Infante Francisco de Paula of Spain (Duke of Cadiz) were brothers. Isabel's mother
Princess Maria Christina of Bourbon Two Sicilies and Infante Francisco de Assisis's mother
Princess Louise of Bourbon Two Sicilies were also sisters.
In other words Isabel and her husband Francisco de Asis were double first cousins since their respective fathers were married to two sisters.
(Note - Since 1713 Salic Law applied in Spain but after Isabel's parents marriage (11 December 1829) Fernando revoked this law (on 30 June 1833) by Pragmatic Sanction. Ferdinand died three years after the birth of his daughter Isabel and she was proclaimed Queen of Spain with her mother, Marie Christina as Regent. Ferdinand's brother Carlos protested this change and on 4 October 1833 he was proclaimed as King. A treaty (22 April 1834) between Great Britain, France, Spain and Portugal provided for the expulsion of Carlos and in June 1834 Carlos retired to England and the following month the Carlist War began in Spain).
Isabel was deposed and driven out of Spain following a revolution on 30 September 1868 and abdicated to her eldest son Alfonso on 25 June 1870. One of the instigators of this uprising was Isabel's brother-in-law Prince Antoine of Orleans (Duke of Montpensier).

Carlos became a naturalised Spanish subject and was granted the title Infante of Spain on 7 February 1901. Carlos's children were also Infantes of Spain by Royal Decree of King Alfonso XIII of Spain on 3 August 1908. There's some dispute as to whether Prince Carlos validly renounced his rights to the throne of Bourbon-Two Sicilies on 14 December 1900 on his marriage to Maria de las Mercedes in execution of the Pragmatic Decree" prohibiting the union of the Spanish and Two Sicilies Crowns. Supporters of this side of the family are apparently of the opinion that Carlos did not have the right to renounce for his descendants.
The impending marriage of Carlos and Maria de las Mercedes caused discontent and riots in Spain.

The Torlonia family were extremely wealthy and were considered as the Rothschilds of Rome as depicted by this article. The Don Alessandro Torlonia mentioned in the article was a younger brother to Alessandro's (husband of Infanta Beatriz) great grandfather.
Alessandro (husband of Infanta Beatriz) was said to be the wealthiest land-owner in Europe and had to give up part of huge estates as part of Italy's land reform policy in 1950.

Currently I can't locate this marriage in the 1962 Marriage Index but can find a possible marriage in the
1964 September Marriage Index .Luc de La Barre de Nanteuil was Ambassador of France to the United States, then in Great Britain.
Philippa McDonald was secondly married to Marco Alfonso Torlonia on 9 November 1968 (Divorced 1985).
Philippa McDonald was thirdly married to Laurie Morgan (date not known at present). Lawrence 'Laurie' Morgan (1915 -1997) won two golds medal in equestrian at the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome and also became the first Australian to win an equestrian gold medal.
An interesting extract from Ben Toney's (original Programme Director of Radio London) autobiography in which he relates to his encounter with Prince Marco Torlonia and his future wife Philippa, Countess of Nanteuil. Ben Toney mentions Philippa McDonald an Australian model from Perth had gone to Paris to promote her modelling career. While she was there, she met and married the Count of Nanteuil - the inference is that Philippa and the Count of Nanteuil had married in Paris rather than London.

13.J8 - Prince Antonia was also Infante of Spain
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 child 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).
