Don is a title. So, I prefer to italicize it.
Put accents on Spanish names.

Which names?

Does she have Basque ancestry, or was her father just born there?

Just found that her grandparents were both from Madrid, so no basque ancestry. Her father has a very interesting family tree though, he’s related to William the Conqueror.

Ignacio de la Huerta y Fernández de Henestrosa, IX Marqués de Puebla de Parga, was born in Biarritz, France (that is close to the Spanish border). His wife was born in Madrid.
