JUAN CARLOS, KING OF SPAIN
An episode from the series SECRETS OF HISTORY - PORTRAITS
Heir to Franco's dictatorship who designated him as its successor, Juan Carlos I gradually became, as soon as he ascended to the throne, the undisputed symbol of democracy, which he would firmly defend in 1981 when it was under attack by nostalgic soldiers.
From the Royal Palace in Madrid, SECRETS OF HISTORY looks back at this king and the events that marked his reign. It also opens the doors to the most beautiful palaces of the Spanish monarchy.
