Heiress to thrones

The arms of Princess Alice as Infanta of Spain.

Infanta Alicia is heiress to the throne of the Kingdom of Navarre if its traditional succession law (male-preference primogeniture) is followed, according to her son's official website.[3]

As the heir-general of Louis XIV of France and Maria Theresa of Spain[4], Infanta Alicia is also the representative of the ancient kings of Castile, Aragon, Naples and Sicily. Thus her son Infante Carlos, Duke of Calabria will at her death not only be the direct senior genealogical representative of Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies but also of the longest reigning dynasty in Naples and Sicily, which ruled Sicily from 1282 and Naples from 1442, until 1700 with the death of King Charles II of Spain who ruled both kingdoms through a viceroy when the two thrones passed temporarily to the Habsburgs and Savoys until restored to the Bourbons, as heirs of the ancient kings, in 1734.

If the marriage of Maria Beatrice of Savoy to her uncle is counted as illegal, then Alicia, as heir of Maria Beatrice's next sister, would be the Jacobite pretender to the thrones of England, Scotland, France and Ireland.[5] However, it should be noted that English and Scots law in 1688 (after which point Jacobites must admit it to be static, as changes would require the approval of the monarch, who they hold is not the person actually on the throne) stated that a marriage contracted outside of the realms was not challenged if it was legal in its own land; thus, since Maria Beatrice and her mother's brother Francis IV, Duke of Modena received the Pope's consent to marry, Alicia's claim is weak.
