"In 1895 while visiting her uncle Robert I, Duke of Parma, who had a villa in Viareggio, Elvira met and fell in love with Filippo Folchi, an artist who was copying some tapestries for the duke. Folchi, ten years older than Elvira, was already a married man with children. When, the Duke of Parma learned about their affair, he fired Folchi. However, Folchi continued to court and correspond with Infanta Elvira. Eventually, Folchi's wife also learned of the affair, and they left for Florence.  In November 1896, while on a visit to her sister Beatriz, Princess Massimo in Rome, Elvira slipped away from her sister's care and eloped with Folchi taking her jewels with her. Shortly after, Elvira's father declared her death. Don Carlos issued a manifesto to his supporters: "You are my family, my beloved children. I therefore think it is my duty to inform you that one of my children, she who was Infanta Doña Elvira, is dead to us all. '" [Wikipedia]
