Family originsEdit

Pedro was the son of Francisco Téllez-Girón, 10th Duke de Osuna and of María Francisca Beaufort Spontin y Álvarez de Toledo. The Téllez-Girón family had held title over the Dukedom of Osuna since 1562 with the rise of Pedro Téllez-Girón.

BiographyEdit

Pedro inherited the Dukedom of Osuna after the death of his father in 1820.

He died in 1844 without leaving behind any heirs. As a result, all of his titles, including the Dukedoms of the Infantado and of Osuna would pass on to his brother, Mariano Téllez-Girón.[1]
