Alfonso was the eldest child of the then-reigning the Bourbon King Alfonso XIII and his wife, Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg.
Birth of a prince
He was born on May 10, 1907 at 12:35 PM according to Marc Jones, getting the ascendant of 3 Virgo 33. He and his youngest brother Gonzalo were both hemophiliacs, like their cousin Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaevich of Russia. Both boys had 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. Shortly thereafter, the monarch was deposed and his 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 was 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 lasted neither, and they divorced on 8 January 1938. He had no children by either of his wives.
Rectifying the Prince
I do not agree with the 12:35 birth time, so I rectified it. I found a birth time three hours earlier works much better. Instead of 3 Virgo 33 ascendant, he now has a 24 Cancer 30 ascendant i.e. Cancer 25. This symbol is of “a dark mantle is thrown suddenly around the right shoulder” (keyword is destiny).
Prince now has a preponderance in Cancer. Pluto was discovered upon the Rise of the German Reich and the Spanish Second Republic, and is found in his 12th house at 22 Gemini 27 , near his 01 Cancer Part of Fortune, of a flag furling and unfurling — blowing this way and that with the wind, however best suits it.
The Fatal Crash
He died after a car crash in Miami, bleeding to death from his hemophilia. They buried the Prince at Woodlawn Cemetery there. His former wife, still carrying the title the Contessa of Covadonga, though asked, did not appear to pay her respects.
