Historical background


SPAIN - KINGDOM OF SPAIN - ALFONSO XIII

(17/05/1886-14/04/1931)

Alphonse XIII (17/05/1886-28/02/1941) is the posthumous son of Alfonso XII (1857-1885) and Marie-Christine of Austria (1858-1929). His reign began under the regency of Marie-Christine. In 1898, after a short war (1895-1898) against the United States, Spain lost Cuba and the Philippines. In 1906, Alphonse wife Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg (1887-1969), granddaughter of Victoria I. Neutral during the First World War, Spain catches up its economic backwardness. After the dictatorship of General Primo de Rivera between 1923 and 1930, the insurrection broke out in 1931. Alfonso left Spain, but never abdicates. The Republic is proclaimed and five years later the Civil War broke out. It lasts three years and cost more than a million dead. Alfonso XIII died in exile in Rome.
