Federico de Madrazo: La Infanta Luisa Fernanda. Luisa Fernanda, Infanta of Spain and sister of Isabella II. She married Antoine d’Orléans, Duke of Montpensier, the youngest son of Louis Philippe. During the revolution of 1868, Montpensier supported the opponents of his sister-in-law, hoping to ascend to the throne. However, he dilapidated any possibility when he fought a duel against the Infante Enrique - brother of the consort king - and killed him. Montpensier was convicted and sentenced to prison. Obviously, the relationship between the two sisters had become by then very tense.
The Spanish parliament later chose Amadeo of Savoy as the new king. Montpensier and his family were exiled, but returned in 1874.
