  • 40 years King Juan Carlos I of Spain

    On 22nd November 1975 - two days after General Franco's death - Don Juan Carlos, Prince of Spain, was proclaimed King of Spain, restoring the monarchy after a 44-year interregnum.

    In 1977, he enacted political reforms that led to Spain's first democratic election since 1936.

    The Spanish Constitution, which was unanimously approved by Parliament and voted by 87.8% of the citizens in a referendum held on 6th December 1978, provides in article 1 for a Parliamentary Monarchy of the classical liberal European style, with certain peculiarities to take into account the Spanish situation.

    Article 1.3 reads: 'The political form of the Spanish State is that of a Parliamentary Monarchy'
