Tamara Falcó studied at Lake Forest College in Illinois, then joined the prestigious Marangoni fashion school in Milan and the University of Navarre, Spain. Enrique Iglesias’ half-sister has become a full-time influencer and socialite. In 2013, she released her first reality show on the small Cosmopolitan TV channel. And it was in 2019 that his notoriety exploded with his participation and his victory at Masterchef. She also found her new calling. Today, she has become a chef and wants to open a restaurant in the family palace, El Rincón. Although she was not her father’s eldest, she was the one who inherited the title of Marquise de Griñon, in accordance with her father’s wishes recorded in his will. In Spain, the transmission of titles of nobility is not automatic and must be validated by the Ministry of Justice after examination of each application.

Iñigo Onieva, 33, is a car designer and owner of the nightclub Lula The Club. In the Netflix series, the marquise speaks openly about her relationship with her fiancé and the rumors of infidelity that regularly make the headlines in the Spanish tabloids, of which members of the nobility are recurring protagonists. They met in early 2020, but their relationship started a few months later.

We already suspect that the wedding will take place at El Rincón Palace, located in Aldea del Fresno, in the Community of Madrid. In addition to her father’s title, the Marquise inherited this palace, a 19th century fortress that has 30 rooms and more than 120 hectares of land.

The title of Marquess of Griñon was created in 1862 by Queen Isabella II of Spain in favor of María Cristina Fernández de Córdoba, wife of the Count of Villariezo and daughter of the Duke of Arión. The 1st Marquise died childless in 1917. Her heir was her great-nephew. Tamara’s father, 5th Marquess of Griñon, inherited the title from her grandfather (her mother’s father) in 1955. The title then passed to the Falcó family. Tamara’s father was also the son of the Duke of Montellano. If Tamara inherited the title of Marquis de Griñon, her older half-brother is Marquis de Castel-Moncayo and her half-sister Isabel is Marquise de Mirabel, also widow of the Marquis of Almodóvar. Tamara’s father has been married four times. Isabel Preysler is his second wife. He had two children with the first, two children with the third and no children with the last. Tamara therefore has 4 half-siblings on her father’s side and 4 half-siblings on her mother’s side.
