FERNANDO DEBAS MADRID CABINET PHOTO KING ALFONSO XII OF SPAIN

Fine cabinet card by Fernando Debas of King Alfonso XII of Spain (1857-1885). Alfonso was the eldest son of Prince Francisco de Asis de Borb�n-Dos Sicilias and Queen Isabel II, whose reign was marked by a constant political crisis which had several causes. The first one was the fact that queen Isabel II was a woman, and her father, king Ferdinand VII, had modified the Succession Law in order for her to be queen, excluding his brother Carlos. This created the second cause of instability, which was the Carlist Wars. The supporters of Prince Carlos as king of Spain rose to have him enthroned. In addition, within the context of the post-Napoleonic restorations and revolutions which engulfed the West both in Europe and the Americas, both the Carlistas as well as the Isabelino conservatives were opposed to the new Napoleonic constitutional system.
