Cadiz , Luisa Carlotta Maria Isabella of Naples, Duquesa de – (1804 – 1844)
Princess Luisa Carlotta of Naples was born (Oct 24, 1804) in Portici, the daughter of Francisco I, King of Naples, and his wife Maria Isabella of Spain, the daughter of Carlo IV. She married (1819) her uncle, Infante Franceso de Paula, Duque de Cadiz (1794 – 1865) to whom she bore eleven children. A woman of commanding manner and masculine appearance, she arranged the marriage of her younger sister Maria Christina with the widowed Ferdinando VII (1829). The duquesa became prominent in Spanish politics, and when Queen Maria Christina agreed to revoke the Pragmatic Sanction in order to prevent civil war (1833), which would have prevented her daughter Isabella II from succeeding to the throne, the infanta travelled hastily from La renja to Andalusia, upbraiding the queen for her cowardice, and personally destroying the offending document. The duquesa also procured the dismissal and permanent exile of Francesco Calomarde (1833), King Ferdinand’s chief minister. The duquesa later quarrelled with her sister (1838) and resided with her family in Paris, until finally returning to Spain (1841), where she successfully engineered the marriage of her son Franceso de Asis (1822 – 1902) with his cousin Isabella II. Duquesa Luisa Carlotta died of measles (Jan 29, 1844) aged thirty-nine, in Madrid, and was interred within the Escorial Palace.
