I didn’t know Juan Carlos had a brother who was killed, because Juan Carlos shot (he was with a gun) thinking there was no bullets.
And, after the funeral, his father was so angry that he sent him back to Spain and didn’t talk to him for a while.
I feel so bad for Juan Carlos. He lost a brother because of a mistake and he had to handle the pain and the fault, alone.
Some people say that he shot the gun thinking that it didn’t got any bullets and some people say that he was cleaning the gun when someone opened the door and the door touched his arm and it made the gun to shot. I always feel really bad for him, he was just a kid and he lost his only brother with whom he had an awesome relationship and then his dad sent him back to Spain and, as far as I know he had some problem in his ear and he had to deal with that by himself but, he always showed so much respect and admiration for his dad and he cried in his funeral. So, it always breaks my heart when someone brings this whole history again, that was a difficult situation for everyone.
Besides, that gun was his father’s, it was Don Juan’s responsibility to keep it locked/out of his children’s hands instead of blaming his son. One of the King’s childhood biographers (this author spoke to many people, including his sisters) claims that Don Juan himself let them “play” with the gun that afternoon.
