Royal wedding in Spain

January 12, 1906

Infanta Maria Teresa of Spain, elder sister of King Alfonso XIII, and Prince Ferdinand of Bavaria were married today at Madrid.  Cardinal Sancha y Hervas, Archbishop of Toledo, was the officiant at the Roman Catholic service.

The New York Times described the wedding ceremony as "brilliant, and there was a great gathering of members of the royal family, Cabinet Ministers and other notabilities."

The Infanta and her husband, who has become Infante Ferdinando of Spain, are first cousins.
