Family

  • Leopold was the fifth son of Francis I of the Two Sicilies and his second wife Maria Isabella of Spain.[1] Leopold's elder brother, Ferdinand II of the Two Sicilies, considered a marriage between Leopold and Princess Marie of Orléans, but the negotiations with her father, Louis-Philippe of France, foundered over the French uprisings in 1834 and Louis-Philippe's refusal to grant Marie her part of the "donation-partage" of his lands (a condition Ferdinand had put in place for the marriage to occur).

Marriage and issue

  • Leopold ultimately married Princess Maria of Savoy-Carignan, second-eldest daughter of Prince Joseph Maria of Savoy-Carignan, Count of Villafranca and his wife Pauline Benedictine de Quélen de Vauguyon, on 16 June 1837[1] in Naples. Leopold and Maria had only one child, Isabella, who died less than a year after her birth in 1838.
