The widowed queen and regent Maria Cristina, allied with liberal political sectors to his daughter Elizabeth was queen of Spain. To reinforce the figure of the future queen, they decided that Isabel marry her cousin, Francisco de Asis who was also a Bourbon, and that is not expecting much interest in political decisions of the state.
