Storyline

The youth of Prince Alfonso who would become King Alfonso XII of Spain after Queen Isabel II abdication, centered in his love for his cousin María de las Mercedes. Daughter of one of his mother's political opponents, their marriage against the Queen's will won for them popular approval and helped achieving political stability in a turmoiled country.

Contains the most moving mourning scene of a king.
11 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie has an authentic historical background of the war against the Carlistas with the reign of Alfonso XII who was a popular king in Spain. He falls in love with a singer, Mercedes and soon after he is proclaimed king. The movie has also an interest for non-Spanish people because of its similarity with "Sisi" (Romy Schneider) the Austrian princess. Royal dramas have the advantage of showing beautiful dresses and uniforms, kings falling in love with simple girls and showing something of the habits and history of the country.
