Of the Bourbon dynasty; apparently privately tutored after plans to go to the National Institute for the Deaf in Paris were cancelled. Around 1921, withdrew from the succession to the Spanish throne because of his deafness and inability to speak. In 1952, the New York Times reported that he was attempting to reclaim the throne because his hearing wife had since then taught him to speak. This never happened since a military revolt had seized control of the country and abolished the monarchy in 1923. The monarchy was not restored until 1975, too late for Jaime. Often known as Don Jaime ("don" is a Spanish title roughly equivalent to "sir" or "lord"). Also titled as the Duke of Segovia. His sister, Princess Maria Christina of Bourbon, was also deaf.
