Superb photos. I was unaware of the connection between  ImperialGermany and Spain. I suppose this was common among royals.

Ditto. What is the "scoop" here? Obviously he was connected in some way to more than just IR66. We see German royalty in various uniforms for affiliations, but why Alfonso XIII?

At that time almost all European monarchies were related.

Tsar Nicholas II, Kaiser Wilhelm II and George V of England were cousins. Likewise, the Kaiser and the Tsar were great-great grandchildren of Tsar Paul I. At the same time, the Kaiser, the King of England and the Tsar's wife, Alexandra of Hesse-Darmstadt, were grandchildren of Queen Victoria. In Spain, Alfonso XIII was also married to a granddaughter of this, and his mother was related to the Emperor of Austria.

In the middle of the month of March of 1904, the Kaiser Wilhelm II quoted in Vigo, on March 15, King Alfonso XIII to hold a meeting that was then classified as secret.

It seems that the Kaiser suggested that he marry a German princess.

A few months before Alfonso XIII was appointed  Regimentsinhaber of the regiment Königlich Bayerisches "5. Feldartillerie-Regiment „König Alfons XIII. von Spanien" 

First and only regiment owner was from January 27, 1904 King Alfonso XIII. from Spain. The regiment was from then on its name as an addition.
