Hernando Carlos Maria Teresa Fitz-James Stuart y Falco (3 November 1882 – 7 November 1936) was a Spanish nobleman.

Biography

He was born in Madrid, the younger son of Carlos Maria Fitz-James Stuart, 16th Duke of Alba and his wife Maria del Rosario Falco, 21st Countess of Siruela. On his father's death on 13 October 1901 he became 14th Duke of Penaranda de Duero (and a Grandee of Spain), 11th Count of Montijo (also with the Grandeeship attached), and 13th Marquis of Valderrabano. His elder brother Jacobo inherited the majority of the family titles including the Dukedom of Alba.

The Duke of Penaranda de Duero was a Gentilhombre Grande Espana (Gentleman Grandee of Spain of the Royal Household) to the King Alfonso XIII of Spain. At the 1920 Summer Olympics he and his brother were on the Spanish polo team, winning the silver medal.

On 20 December 1920, the Duke was married to Maria del Carmen Saavedra y de Collado, and they had one son Fernando Alfonso Fitz-James Stuart y Saavedra, born 24 January 1922 and died 20 July 1970. The Duke of Penaranda de Duero was slain by communists in the massacre of Paracuellos during November 1936, and was succeeded in his titles by his only son. The Duchess died on 23 April 1967.
