The first wife of my ancestor, Don Abraham Senior (1410/12-1492) of Castile,
was Dona Violante de Cabrera, who I think was the sister of Andreas de
Cabrera, 1st Marques de Moya (who was apparently of Jewish descent). At
least the Jewish Encylopedia
(http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?letter=S&artid=474) says that
Don Abraham was a 'near relative' of Andreas de Cabrera and I assume that
this was through his wife. Can anyone confirm this either way?
Interestingly, Empress Eugénie of France (1870-1920), wife of the Emperor,
Napoleon III (1808-1873), was the daughter of Don Cipriano de Palafox y
Portocarrero (1785-1839, 17th Marquis of Moya, which presumably means that
she was part Jewish.
