You're welcome, magnik.

There are a lot of similar 'amusing' mistakes on Wiki but they are usually removed very quickly. A couple of years ago, just as I became interested in modern Royalty, I stumbled across Queen Fabiola's entry, which, among other things, read, "...the Queen... who was briefly married to Phil Spector".
Another mistake I noticed just today was about Archduke Otto von Habsburg: his page states that Otto has been President of Pan-European Union since 1986, when in fact he's been Interim President since 1972 and President since 1973; they celebrated 32 years of his presidency in 2004.

Well, today it's eight years from this and I think it deserves to be remembered

After all, there are two moments in the reign of Juan Carlos I that will remain on the memory of the average Spaniard forever: the one when he standed against the coup in 1981 and the one when he told Chavez to shut the ***** up

Wow, I can't believe 8 years have passed, Chavez is already dead since 2013.
But I guess there is another event that will remain in the mind of the average Spaniard forever: that he travelled to Botswana to shoot an elephant in times of crisis.

Yeah, probably. And his "sorry, I did a mistake, it won't happen again" as his other main remarkable quote... (as today, we still wonder what he was so sorry about -the trip, the elephant, the fall, that he got catched?- and what will not happen again - you being catched?- )

imo as a former sovereign he started out as the champion of democracy and he road those laurels for years. He abdicated with the 65% approval rating per el mundo.

He failed in once aspect in that he has too much bourbon blood. HM Queen Sophia has been quoted previously that he was devastated by the death of his Gangan HM Queen Victoria Eugenia , and I believe both she VE, and her gangan , Queen Victoria would have seen this entire situation in Spain as a failure. They Both would have acted, and counseled him to have acted in regards to the "Urdangarín affair" SOOOO much sooner so that the public may not have even heard those two words. (and i am not saying that HRH the Infanta is even Guilty and/or Innocent).
I am just saying that Queen Victoria would have headed this off before it became a national crisis and one of her children were dragged into Court and lost / or were stripped into Court. And yes i know EVII went into Court but EVII went to Court of his own volition.

2.) As a Husband, and this is my own opionion, i don't think i have to voice it. JC is not worthy of the Queen. With the Role Models he had like His father, King Paul, ..... He is not even 1/1000 of the man King paul was. It makes one admire Queen Sofia 100 times more when you look at everthing she's endured in life, the loss of her birth country, the unjust Vilification of her Parents (which is just being undone with the birth of documents coming to light and the death of the old greek communists) and Mitsotakis finally telling the truth, atleast she has King Constanine , HRH Princess Irene, and Prince Michael , King Michael, Her Children, and Grandchildren.

I don't know how JC can look his children in the eyes, or his grandchildren , especially now that they can read, especially with all of his conquests, or whores names always popping up in these new articles and now that he has lost his immunity ...................

Oh well, the King often dines out. Maybe the journalists just put 2 and 2 together and arrived at 5. He probably just wanted to dine with his sister and it happened to be on that particular date.

Well, that's a very obvious thing to say, but at least the king didn't utter something nasty about his daughter-in-law...

may i add to your sentence... that he travelled to Botswana to shoot an elephant in times of crisis whilst being the spanish patron of the world wildlife fund - which was the epitome of hypocrisy and inconsistency!

King Juan Carlos of Spain ousted from WWF presidency after row over hunting trip - Telegraph

i have to also add that people will also remember him as the king under which the worst modern case of royal corruption has occured (that of his daughter), and his inability to put an end to their corruption and fraud. he mentions in his france 3 interview that being dyslexic he believes he developed other skills, such as those of intuition, which i guess probably helped him figure out what was going on - and he failed to take action, apart from sending inaki and cristina outside of spain, to the US.

he did good things for spain, but unfortunately his reign did not end in the best of manners.
