Spain’s Duchess of Alba Hospitalized in Seville

SEVILLE – The 88-year-old Duchess of Alba, the woman with most aristocratic titles in the world, is responding well to treatment at the Seville hospital where she was taken late Sunday, doctors said Monday.

Maria del Rosario Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart y Silva, 18th Duchess of Alba, was admitted to the Sagrado Corazon Clinic’s emergency ward Sunday suffering from stomach flu, pneumonia and irregular heartbeat and was described in serious but not critical condition.

One of her doctors, Juan Antonio Marquez Vacarro, said her situation was “under control” but added that at her age any illness is more risky.

The duchess, a Grandee of Spain and one of the wealthiest women in the country, is a favorite of celebrity magazines, where she appears with her short white frizzy hair and hippy-style dresses, and a great patroness of the arts, with a known soft spot for flamenco music and bullfighting.

She last made international headlines in 2011 when she married her third husband, civil servant Alfonso Diez, 24 years younger than her, and gave her six children their inheritance in advance to quell their fears over the wedding.

The only child of the 17th Duke of Alba, she has more noble titles than any other person in the World and is also a direct descendant of King James II of England and VII of Scotland.
