Family

Urraca was the sixth and youngest child of Prince Ferdinand Pius of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Duke of Calabria and his wife Princess Maria Ludwiga Theresia of Bavaria.

Life

Urraca, who was widowed following a brief marriage while in her twenties, travelled to Naples often and was much loved by its people. She was received by the Neapolitan nobility and the city's poor appreciated Urraca's kindness. She also travelled regularly to Rome, where she frequently stayed with the Lancelloti princely family.

In 1957, Urraca had an accident while driving a car with her sister Maria Antonietta as its only passenger.Maria Antonietta died and Urraca spent several months in the hospital recovering from her serious injuries.

In her older age, Urraca was under the care of her niece, Countess of Stolberg-Wernigerode. Urraca's niece placed her in a nursing home for the elderly in Sigmaringen where she spent the last 18 months of her life.

Urraca wished to have her remains cremated and placed in the church of the Neapolitan Bourbons at Santa Chiara in Naples, however, the Head of the House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies Prince Ferdinand, Duke of Castro refused to honor her wishes as he intended to reserve space for his immediate family's remains. Urraca was instead buried with her parents, her eldest sister Maria Antonietta, and her elder brother Prince Ruggiero Maria, Duke of Noto at the Filialkirche St. Peter und Paul in Rieden, Swabia, Germany.
