Prince Xavier of Bourbon-Parma is going somewhere with his wife Madeleine de Bourbon Xavier, Duke of Parma and Piacenza, known before 1974 as Prince Xavier of Bourbon-Parma (called Francisco Javier de Borbón Parma y de Braganza in Spain; 25 May 1889 – 7 May 1977) was the head of the ducal House of Bourbon-Parma, pretender to the defunct throne of Parma, and Carlist claimant to the royal throne of Spain under the name (Francisco) Javier I. Xavier was the son of Robert, Duke of Parma, and of his second wife, Infanta Maria Antonia of Portugal. He was born at Villa Pianore, near Viareggio in Italy. He had eleven brothers and sisters, including Empress Zita of Austria and Felix (consort of Charlotte, Grand Duchess of Luxembourg). From his father's first marriage, he had a further twelve half-siblings including Princess Marie Louise of Bourbon-Parma (consort of the future Tsar Ferdinand I of Bulgaria) and Duke Elias of Parma. On 20 May 1952, the National Council of the Traditionalist Communion (the Carlists who supported Xavier) declared that the regency was over and that Xavier was the rightful successor to the Spanish throne. Henceforward Xavier claimed the throne as Javier I. Xavier kept up Carlist activity in Spain. He was generally opposed to the government of General Franco who lent his support more to Juan, son of Alfonso XIII, and Archduke Karl Pius of Austria. In 1956 the government expelled Xavier from Spain. On 7 May 1977 Xavier died of a heart attack in a hospital at Zizers near Chur in Switzerland; he had been visiting his sister the Empress Zita of Austria. Photo Taken - 14 April 1964
