Historical background


ANDORRA

(Nineteenth century)

Andorra privileges can be traced to the reign of Charlemagne in 806. Paréage rules are set in 1278 and still operating today. The President of the Republic and the Bishop of Urgel are co-princes of Andorra. In 1835, it is the bishop of Albi which is named co-prince to counterbalance the influence of the Bishop of Urgel was Carlist. The issue of 1873 could then find its origin in the Carlist wars in Spain in the nineteenth century. Charles, Count of Molina (1788-1855), refuses to recognize his niece Isabella as Queen of Spain in 1833 after the death of Ferdinand VII. Charles VII (Carlos), Duke of Madrid (1848-1909), continued the struggle undertaken by his father, the Count of Molina, between 1868 and 1875 to try to ascend the throne of Spain. The pieces are in his likeness engraved by Charles Wurden.
