Cardinal-Infante Luis Antonio of Bourbon

Ca. 1737. Oil on canvas. Not on display

Born in 1727, Don Luis, son of Philip V and Isabella Farnese, was destined for an ecclesiastical career since childhood and is already shown here as a cardinal. He renounced his vows in 1754 and in 1776 his brother Charles III arranged his marriage to the young María Teresa de Vallabriga, a member of the minor nobility, with the aim of ending his numerous scandalous affairs. He was also stripped of his rights to the throne.
