Lucia Migliaccio, Duchess of Floridia (19 July, 1770, Syracuse, Sicily - 26 April, 1826, Naples) was the second wife of Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies. Their marriage was morganatic and Lucia was never a Queen consort.

Family

She was a daughter of Vincent Migliaccio and Doreta Borgia. Her mother came from Spain.

Marriages

She married first Benedict Grifero, Prince of Partanna

On 27 November, 1814, Lucia married Ferdinand III of Sicily in Palermo. The bride was forty-four years old and the groom sixty-three.

Ferdinand had lost his first wife Marie Caroline of Austria with her death on 8 September, 1814. He had already practically abdicated his power by naming their eldest son Prince Francis as his regent and delegating most decisions to him. While Marie Caroline was considered the de facto ruler of Sicily until 1812, Lucia had very limited influence.

Ferdinand was restored to the throne of the Kingdom of Naples by right of his victory on the Battle of Tolentino (May 3, 1815) over rival monarch Joachim I. On December 8, 1816 he merged the thrones of Sicily and Naples to the throne of the Two Sicilies. With Francis still serving as his Regent and Lucia as the Royal consort.

Ferdinand continued to rule until his death on January 4, 1825. Lucia survived him by a year and three months. There were no children from this marriage.
