About Martha Ester Caballero (Rocafort-Altazarra)

Marta Esther Rocafort y Altuzarra, later hyphenated Rocafort-Altuzarra was the second wife of the Count of Covadonga (previously known as Alfonso, Prince of Asturias).

Rocafort, a fashion model, was the eldest daughter of Blas Manuel Rocafort y González, a prominent Cuban dentist, and wife Rogelia Altuzarra y Carbonell. Her siblings were Elvira and Blas Rocafort y Altuzarra, later hyphenated Rocafort-Altuzarra.

Rocafort began dating the Count in New York City before his first marriage to Edelmira Sampedro y Robato ended.

On 3 July 1937, the Count married Rocafort-Atuzarrra in a lavish wedding in Havana, Cuba attended by the President of Cuba, Federico Laredo Brú. Two months later they separated and on 8 January 1938, they were divorced in New York City.

The widowed countess then married the Miami millionaire, Thomas E. H. "Tommy" Atkins, Jr. at the Central Baptist Church in Miami on 19 March 1938. Her former husband died six months later in Miami on 6 September 1938.

Marta Atkins married a third time to Rodolfo Caballero.

Her nephew is the Spanish fashion designer Juanjo Rocafort (Juan José Rocafort Burgos).[1]
