The mayor of Seville announced that the Duchess of Alba, Maria del Rosario Cayetana Alfonsa Victoria Eugenia Francisca Fitz-James-Stuart y de Silva, died earlier today at her palace. Her husband and six children were with her. She was 88.
Why is she famous? I saw a picture of her standing in a street with a crowd around her. I have heard of the Duchess of Alba, but not sure why she is so prominent.
