    The marriage of British and Italian aristocracy: From the Royal House of Bourbon-Two-Sicilies to the Scottish Peerage of the Earl of Lindsay

    The marriage of Prince Jaime of Bourbon-Two-Sicilies to Lady Charlotte Lindesay-Bethune in a ceremony in southern Italia on Saturday has seen two families of the British and Italian aristocracy become tied.

    Qui, FEMAIL reveals the history behind the groom’s Royal House of Bourbon-Two-Sicilies and the bride’s Scottish Peerage of the Earl of Lindsay

    The Royal House of Bourbon Two Sicilies

    The Royal House of Bourbon Two Sicilies is an ancient branch of the Spanish royal family which ruled parts of southern Italy for more than 100 anni da 1734 per 1861. Its descendants still carry the name today, alcuni 150 anni dopo.

    The line descends from Philippe de Bourbon, Duke of Anjou, grandson of Louis XIV of France (1638–1715), who established the Bourbon dynasty in Spain in 1700 as Philip V (1683–1746).

    Nel 1759 King Philip’s younger grandson was appanaged with the kingdoms of Naples and Sicily, becoming Ferdinand IV and III (1751–1825), rispettivamente, of those realms. His descendants occupied the joint throne (renamed ‘Kingdom of the Two Sicilies’ nel 1816) fino a 1860.

    La famiglia, then led by Francis II, was overthrown in 1860 by Italian general Giuseppe Garibaldi, who proclaimed a dictatorship on behalf of Victor Emmanuel II, the the King of Piedmont-Sardinia and later King of Italy. The Kingdom of the Two Sicilies and the Kingdom of Sardinia were merged into the newly formed Kingdom of Italy.

    The last King of Two Sicilies was Francis II, who was overthrown in 1860 and spent the remainder of his life in exile

    The succession has been disputed since Ferdinand's death in 1960 because he had six daughters and no sons to carry the family line. Both his nephew Infante Alfonso, Duke of Calabria, and brother Prince Ranieri, nella foto, Duke of Castro, laid claim to the throne. This feud continues between their descendants today

    The deposed Francis II and his wife spent time in Rome as guests of the Pope where they ran a government in exile. They left the city before it was occupied by the Italians in 1870. They led a wandering life from then on, living in Austria, Francia, and Bavaria.

    Francis II died in 1894 and was succeeded by his half-brother, Prince Alfonso, who was in turn succeeded by his son, Prince Ferdinand Pius, Duke of Calabria.

Both his nephew Infante Alfonso, Duke of Calabria, and brother Prince Ranieri, Duke of Castro, laid claim to the throne. This feud continues between their descendants today.

    Chiara and Carolina are the daughters of Prince Carlo, Duke of Castro, grandson of Prince Ranieri. The claimant on the other side of the family is Prince Pedro, Duke of Calabria, grandson of Infante Alfonso.
