Biography

  • Francisco de Paula was born at Toulouse, France third child of Infante Enrique, Duke of Seville (1823–1870), (son of Infante Francisco de Paula of Spain and Princess Luisa Carlotta of Naples and Sicily) and his wife, Elena María de Castellví y Shelly (1821–1863), (daughter of Antonio de Padua de Castellví y Fernández de Córdoba, Count of Castellá and Margarita Shelly) his mother was of Valencian and Irish ancestry. His parents marriage was not approved by Queen Isabella II, they were married in secret in Rome, once returned to Spain, the couple were exiled to Bayonne, and later they settled in Toulouse.
  • He had four brothers and one sister, and his early years were spent between Spain and France. On 12 March 1870, his father challenged, Antoine, Duke of Montpensier to a duel. The duel, ended in the shooting and death of his father. His brother Enrique, refused to accept the 30,000 pesetas that the Duke of Montepensier offered to pay for his act. He and his siblings were adopted by his uncle, Francis.
  • Like his brothers, Francisco proved to have good military skills. Initially, they joined the Carlist army, but after the restoration of the monarchy he joined his cousin's, Alfonso XII army in 1875, that year he was appointed brigadier general in the island of Cuba, which at that time was still a colony of Spain.
  • Francisco de Paula was known at the time to claim for himself the nonexistent French throne, after the death of the pretender Henry, Count of Chambord in 1883. His claims caused numerous headaches for the Queen regent Maria Christina, which resulted in two months of imprisonment for Francisco de Paula in Santoña in 1898. In 1927, his cousin Alfonso XIII awarded him with the Order of the Golden Fleece.
