The four great realms of the History of Spain have been the work of Carlos I, Felipe II, Carlos III and Juan Carlos I. The transformation from a dictatorship of 36 years, embodied by the friend of Hitler and Mussolini, to a pluralist democracy in full is due to the decision, the courage and the lucidity of the son of John III. To deny that means to deny the evidence. The Transition is the work of a King is exemplary and of a people mature and moderate.
I Feel for Adolfo Suarez admiration and thanks that was very good to me, even in the most difficult time, before the death of the dictator, when I was a plague and Franco considered me in his journal as "the greatest enemy of the Regime" (Franco Salgado-Araujo, My private conversations with Franco, p. 478). The historical truth is that Suarez was just a pawn of the King, a co-worker that I obeyed without question and knew how to deceive the franco regime with the law of political reform. Attributed to Suarez which corresponds to the King means to encourage the posverdad, that is to say, the greater the lies.
The pettiness of some thrives today in the figure of Don Juan Carlos, who, however, and despite so much cicatería and so frail misery, already occupies a place in History, highlighted as one of the four great Monarchs who reigned in Spain. The King father, in the end, you can celebrate tomorrow with the satisfaction of duty fulfilled its access to the throne 43 years ago. Don John III died in 1993, proud of his son and of the exemplary manner in which she embodied the parliamentary Monarchy, the Monarchy of all.
