Carlos María Isidro de Borbón

(Madrid, 1788 - Trieste, 1855) Pretender to the Spanish throne who sponsored the "Carlist" split of the House of Bourbon, called by his supporters "Charles V of Spain" or simply "Don Carlos". He was the son ofCharles IVand younger brother ofFerdinand VII, with whom he shared exile in Valençay during the War of Independence (1808-14).

As heir to the Throne in the event of his brother's death, Don Carlos became the visible head of monarchists who considered that the absolutist restoration of Ferdinand VII had been too soft; he probably encouraged various conspiracies and rebellions, both against the liberal governments of the Constitutional Triennium (1820-23) and against the policy pursued by his brother during the "Ominous Decade" (1823-33).


Carlos María Isidro de Borbón

The political discrepancy was reinforced when the succession lawsuit broke out, since Ferdinand had only female offspring (the future QueenIsabelII, born in 1830). Under the Agreed Order, promulgated more than a century earlier byPhilip Vupon acceding to the Spanish Throne (1713), females had been excluded from succession to the Crown, according to a Salic Law by which the French Bourbons were governed, which deprived Princess Isabel of rights; but the Cortes that had sworn carlos IV as king in 1789 had annulled that provision, re-establishing the traditional Castilian norm of thePartidas,by which the females had preference as heirs over the males if they were of better line and degree, as was the case of Isabel with respect to Don Carlos.

Since that provision had been kept secret, Don Carlos and his supporters found an audience to argue about their rights to the Throne. A Pragmatic of Ferdinand VII settled the question in 1830, opening Isabel the path of the Throne, moment of which dates the open confrontation between the two branches of the royal family. Taking advantage of an illness of the king, the supporters of Don Carlos achieved the revocation of the Pragmatic (events of La Granja, 1832), which Fernando VII would sign again once re-established; for those events, Carlos María Isidro had to go into exile in Portugal.

In 1833 he refused to return to swear princess Elizabeth as heiress, and when the king died shortly afterwards, he proclaimed his right to the throne, starting the First Carlist War (1833-40). Behind the succession lawsuit, that long civil war pitted the supporters of maintaining the absolute monarchy of the Ancien Régime (theCarlists)against the defenders of the Throne of the girl queen Isabel under the regency of her mother,María Cristina de Borbon(theElizabethansorCristinos),in whose ranks were grouped the liberals willing to implant in Spain a constitutional monarchy inspired by the models of England and France.

Don Carlos actively participated in the war: he entered Spain through Navarre, where the bulk of his supporters were (1834), and even toured the Peninsula at the head of aRoyal Expeditionthat, although it reached the gates of Madrid, did not awaken among the masses the enthusiastic welcome that the suitor expected (1837).

When the expedition failed and then the war was lost, Don Carlos fled to France, whose government confined him in Bourges (1839). In 1845 he abdicated in his son Charles Louis, Count of Montemolin (Charles VI), and settled in Italy. The Carlist cause remained alive, headed by Montemolín and, since his death in 1861, by his nephew Carlos (VII), giving rise to two other civil wars.
