Don Jaime to live in Rome

September 14, 1945

Don Jaime de Borbon y Battenberg, the older brother of the pretender to the Spanish throne,  arrived today in Bologna, Italy, from Switzerland, reports the New York Times.  He is expected to arrive in Rome tomorrow.

Don Jaime, 37, renounced his "dynastic claims twelve years ago."   He and his wife, Donna Emanuela, and their two sons, Alfonso and Gonzalo, will stay with Emanuela's family at the Ruspoli palace.

The Spanish Embassy in Rome  stated today that Don Jaime's decision to move to the Italian capital  has "no political reasons whatsoever."
