Small coat of arms of the Dukes of Bourbon-Parma

The Bourbon-Parma line is an Italian branch line of the Spanish Bourbons and goes back to Philip , Infante of Spain (1720–1765), the fourth son of the Spanish King Philip V (1683–1746). In 1748, the Treaty of Aachen , which ended the War of the Austrian Succession (1740-1748), laid down the transfer of the Italian duchies of Parma , Piacenza and Guastalla to Philip of Bourbon-Parma. This enabled the Spanish Bourbons to assert their claim to the inheritance of Elisabetta Farnese (1692–1766), Philip V's second wife and mother of Philip of Bourbon-Parma, which had existed since 1731 .
