Alfonso was the eldest child of the then-reigning the Bourbon King Alfonso XIII and his wife, Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg and born on May 10, 1907 at 12:35 PM according to Marc Jones. He and his youngest brother Gonzalo were both hemophiliacs like their cousin Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaevich of Russia. Both boys kept in specially-tailored jackets to prevent injury from accidents.
The Spanish Civil War
King Alfonso was facing political problems in the country and hastened his own downfall by agreeing to a military dictatorship. He was in 1931 the monarch was deposed. The family moved into exile. There were plans for young Alfonso’s deposition but he renounced his rights to the then-defunct throne to marry a Cuban commoner, Edelmira Sampedro y Robato, in Ouchy on 21 June 1933. Alfonso took the courtesy title Count of Covadonga as were required by the regulations for the succession set by the Pragmatic Sanction of Charles III. The couple divorced 8 May 1937, with Edelmira keeping the title Countess of Covadonga.
The Prince then married Marta Esther Rocafort-Altuzarra in Havana, Cuba on 3 July 1937. That did not last either and they were divorced on 8 January 1938. He had no children by either of his wives.
Rectifying the Prince
We do not agree with the 12 noon birthtime. We have rectified it to 9:35 AM and 24.30 Cancer ascendant i.e. Cancer 25 — a dark martle is thrown suddenly around the right shoulder (keyword is destiny). This gives the Prince a preponderance in the 1st house and Cancer. Pluto discovered upon the Rise of the German Reich and the Spanish Second Republic is in his 12th house at 22.27 Gemini and near to his 01 Cancer Part of Fortune, of a flag furling and unfurling — blowing this way and that with the wind, however best suits it. A better symbol for an ascendant of someone self-interested and selfish who wants to get ahead, but for destiny it is weakened by their inconstancy in effort and changing times; and so it proved for the Prince.
He died after a car crash in Miami because he bled to death from his hemophilia and was buried at Woodlawn Cemetery there. His former wife, the Contessa of Covadonga, though asked, did not appear to pay her respects.
