Kings (and Queens) and Lovers (part 2)

It’s the second part of our 2-part miniseries looking at the lives of the monarchs and their “special friends”. We started off mainly with the Habsburg dynasty, but now we are going to focus on the Bourbons. In this image we have Isabel II, faithfully fulfilling the Bourbon reputation for being faithless to their spouses while she enjoys the attention of several suitors. In Isabel’s case, some of her actions may have been justified by the fact her husband, Francisco de Asís, was almost assuredly homosexual. Learn about her situation and that of the rest of the dynasty all the way up to modern times. Enjoy!
