    Alicia was the heir general of the kings of Navarre, as well as of Edward the Confessor and David I of Scotland. If the marriage of Maria Beatrice of Savoy to her uncle is deemed illegal, then Alicia, as heir of Maria Beatrice's next sister, would have been the Jacobite pretender to the thrones of England, Scotland, France and Ireland. English and Scots law in 1688 (after which point Jacobites must admit it to be static, as changes would require the approval of the monarch, who they hold is not the person actually on the throne), however, stated that a marriage contracted outside of the realms was not challenged if it was legal in its own land; thus, since Maria Beatrice and her mother's brother Francis IV, Duke of Modena, received the pope's consent to marry, Alicia was not considered a claimant by the Jacobites.
