  15. WI Carlos, Duke of Madrid, were married to Maria Theresa of Austria-Este?

    I don't have any reason to believe that this was close to happening. But they were both Catholic, of very noble blood, both born in the late 1840s. What entertains me is the opportunity to unite the claims of the Jacobite and Carlist pretenders.
