Antonio Farnese, Duke of Parma


Antonio Farnese, Duke of Parma

Antonio Farnese (May 29 1679 - February 26 1731) was the last Farnese Duke of Parma and Piacenza from 1727 until his death.

Born in Parma, he was the third son of Ranuccio II Farnese and Maria d'Este, and succeeded his brother Francesco Farnese on February 27 1727.

The year after, in 1728, he married Henrietta Maria of Modena.

Because neither Francesco nor Antonio had offspring, the Duchy went in 1731 to the 15-year-old Charles III of Spain, son of their half-niece Isabella Farnese, Queen of Spain.

Charles ruled under the regency of his grandmother, Dorothea Sophie of Neuburg and Henrietta Maria of Modena.
