Don Salvador, Prince of Iturbide, also named Salvador de Iturbide y Marzán (18 September 1849, Mexico City - 26 February 1895, Ajaccio, Corsica). was the second adopted son of Maximilian I of Mexico.
His adoptive mother, Empress Carlota of Mexico sent him to France, where he lived at Paris until 1867, when he moved to Hungary. After seeking the right to a pension as an heir to the Mexican throne, he was awarded one by the Emperor Franz Joseph, Emperor Maximilian's brother; Don Salvador regularly petitioned to have it increased.
In Vienna Itúrbide became the friend of a young Hungarian aristocrat, Baron Gyula Gáspár Mikos de Taródhaza who had just returned from a long trip through South-America. Itúrbide was invited to the Mikos family estate in Mikosdpuszta, where he was introduced to Baroness Gizella Mikos. On 21 June 21, 1871 Don Salvador and Baroness Gizela were married at Mikosdpuszta castle. They had a daughter, Maria Josepha Sophia de Iturbide.
Following the marriage the pair lived in Mikosdpuszta but the owner of the estate, Baron János Mikos, sold the castle in 1881. Itúrbide and his wife moved to Venice, and lived in a palace, rented to Count Zeno. In this place, he became a close friend of Carlos, Duke of Madrid, the Carlist pretender to the Spanish throne.
Through his daughter, Maria Josefa, he is the ancestor of the current Pretender to the Imperial Throne of Mexico (and in accordance to her will) Maximilian von Götzen-Itúrbide.
Condecorations and death
He was a member of the Order of the Grand Cross of Our Lady of Guadalupe and awarded with the Personal Order of Charles (the Duke of Madrid).
