Doña Victoria Federica de Todos los Santos de Marichalar y de Borbón (born 9 September 2000 in Madrid)[1] is the daughter of the Duchess of Lugo, the Infanta Elena of Spain and Don Jaime de Marichalar. Doña Victoria Federica is fifth in the line of succession to the Spanish Throne, after her brother Felipe.

Biography[edit]

Her godparents were Felipe VI of Spain (maternal uncle), and Ana de Marichalar y Sáenz de Tejada (paternal aunt). She was named after her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria Eugenie of Spain, and her great-grandmother, Queen Frederika of Greece, and Todos los Santos (All Saints) as it is customary among the Bourbons.

Since birth she carries the style Her Excellency. All the children of Infanta Cristina and Infanta Elena have the "HE Don/Doña" style, as befits the children of an Infanta of Spain.[2] Although they don't have a title, all grandchildren of King Juan Carlos are members of the Spanish Royal House.

She made her first Holy Communion at the Dominicos Church (Alcobendas, Spain) on 27 May 2009.[3]
