Alfonso, Prince of Asturias as a child. He was born to rule Spain but died in exile
There were concerns over Prince Alfonso's health as he had inherited haemophilia from his mother's side of the family and he was well protected to avoid injuries that might lead to bleeding. But in 1914, his life was a straightforward tale of a young boy born to be king learning how to be a king. Just 17 years later, his father would lose his throne and the whole family would flee into exile. Alfonso would give up his dynastic rights to marry a commoner in 1933. By the time he died, as a result of heavy bleeding from injuries sustained in a car accident in 1938, he had divorced and remarried and even if the throne to which he has been born had returned from exile, Alfonso would not have been eligible to inherit it. This heir of 1914 would never inherit his country's crown.
