La Duquesa de Alba efforts and sustained support for the arts were incalculable; her legacy and joie de vivre will live on. She was quite a character.

Not yet Puna, no, but with all the media surrounding her life and assets, I'd bet we'll find out in the coming days.

I know it sounds a bit gruesome but I'll probably watch some of the funeral on La 1 de TVE! It might be a long, drawn out affair though.

There's a article in Yahoo News (in Spanish) about it her taxed & not-taxed assets. See the comments by readers at the bottom of the article as well.
