La Infanta Republicana
A rigorous and exciting biographical approach to a rebel princess, ahead of her time.
Doña Eulalia de Bourbon (1864-1958), also known as “the Republican Princess”, was an exception to her time and her family environment. Daughter of Queen Isabel II, sister of King Alfonso XII and great-grandmother of King Juan Carlos I, this energetic woman was an intellectual, a cosmopolitan, an eternal exiled and a feminist. She hobnobbed with Napoleon III, Eugenia de Montijo, Queen Victoria and Bismarck; she met intellectuals of such level as D’Annunzio or Anatole France, and her life is a paradigm of the cultural concerns and vital principles of the Twentieth Century.
