In 1738, Giuseppe Sforza-Cesarini, 9th Count of Chinchón sold the territory[clarification needed] to King Philip V of Spain's son, Philip. Philip then ceded the county to his younger brother, Luis on 28 May 1761. However, Luis and his successors would lose the rights to the Spanish throne following a battle of succession amongst his brothers (Carlos was the victor). The county remains in Bourbon-Faronese hands until 1828 when Countess María Teresa de Borbón died, her daughter Carlota de Godoy succeeding her. The Italian Ruspoli family eventually acquired the county through marriage with Carlota de Godoy.
