Juan Carlos, King of Spain

Juan Carlos, King of Spain

A king’s farewell is sometimes bittersweet. In a country worn out by the economic crisis, where scandal has damaged the popularity of the monarchy, Juan Carlos abdicates after a 39 years rule, on the 18th of June 2014. He was long hidden in the background, and many had thought of him as an insignificant heir. Yet, each time his country gambled with its future, he always revealed courage an unexpected skillfulness. This exceptional reign, which no one had predicted, forms part of one of the most beautiful pages in the history of Spain: its rebirth.
