Isabel Granada was a Filipino actress, singer, pilot, and athlete. She also held Spanish citizenship.
Isabel’s father, Humberto Cube Ordóñez Granada (or Humberto Cube Granada Ordóñez in Spanish), was a chief marine engineer, of half Filipino [Tagalog] and half Spanish descent, from Majayjay, Laguna. Isabel’s mother, Isabel Castro Campos, is Spanish, from Ferrol, A Coruña.
Isabel was married to Arnel Principe Cowley, until her death. She had a son with her former husband, actor Jericho Genaskey “Geryk” Aguas.
She had said:
[I’m] Seventy-five percent [Spanish]. I’m an only child. I was born in the Philippines but I was raised in El Ferrol del Caudillo [Ferrol, A Coruña], Spain, which is quite far from Madrid. Twenty days after I was born, I was brought by my parents to Spain. My father was half-Filipino and half-Spaniard while my mother is pure Spaniard.
A picture of Isabel’s mother and son can be seen here.
Isabel’s patrilineal line can be trace back to her fourth great-grandfather, Avelino Granada.
Isabel’s paternal grandfather was Crispín Italia Granada (the son of Román Granada y Sobreviña, or Román Sobreviña Granada in Filipino, and of Leoncia Italia). Crispín was born in Majayjay, Laguna. Román was the son of Gabino Granada y Lorayna (or Gabino Lorayna Granada in Filipino) and Teresa Sobreviñas y Colandra (or Teresa Colandra Sobreviñas in Filipino).
Isabel’s paternal grandmother was named Wenceslawa Cube y Ordóñez (or Wenceslawa Ordóñez Cube in Filipino; the daughter of Ángel Cube and Paula Ordóñez). Wenceslawa was born in Majayjay, Laguna.
Isabel’s maternal grandparents were named Antonio Castro V. and Isabel Campos T.

I found her birth certificate, as well as her parents’ marriage certificate. She was born in Quezon City.
Correct Isabel’s paternal grandmother to Wenceslawa Cube y Ordóñez (or Wenceslawa Ordóñez Cube in Filipino).
Isabel’s maternal grandparents were Antonio Castro V. and Isabel Campos T.

I forgot to tell that means that Humberto’s middle name is Cube, not Ordoñez.
More indexed records for the Philippines have been added.

It appears that Humberto’s ethnicity is purely Tagalog. The only way to verify his ethnicity is to look for all of his grandparents’ baptismal records. However, access to church records are currently restricted even until now.
I have found a photo of Isabel’s maternal family, including her maternal grandmother in the middle: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152428886809669&set=a.10150588249044669.434578.644349668&type=3&theater
Read this about her marriage to Jericho Aguas: https://www.facebook.com/jerichogeryk.aguas/posts/10214385549770091
It seems complicated though.
