The Spanish Crown

The Spanish Crown.

The Spanish Regalia consists of an 18th century silver gilt crown and scepter,most of the Spanish Crown jewels were either lost ,sold or stolen during the various upheavals of the 19th and 20th centuries.Today the crown is very rarely seen,it was last seen at the reburial of King Alfonso XIII in 1980.

What a shame! I find it sad that even a monarch such as Juan Carlos, who had every right to opt for a full-fledged coronation, complete with the beautiful and historical regalia, instead went for a more drab civil swearing in ceremony.

Spanish Monarchs were never crowned,there's no Coronation Tradition in Spain.Monarchs in Spain are proclaimed before the Cortes (Parliament).Later Their Majesties and members of the Spanish and invited Foreign Royal families attended an "Enthronement Mass" at the Church of San Jerónimo el Real in Madrid.

Then why have a crown? I was wondering if at some point in history, that spanish monarchs came before the church at their enthronement and not the government.

No European Monarchs are crowned except the British,all other Monarchies have either never had a tradition of Coronations or have done away with them.The Spanish Regalia is present at the Proclamation before the Cortes and is thus symbolic,the King was also enthroned in a Religious Mass a few days later.King Juan Carlos may not have had a Coronation but his Proclamation and Enthronement ceremonies were delivered with a lot more pomp and pageantry than other European Monarchies.

Juan I of Castile (1379) and Ferdinand I of Aragon (1414) were the last Monarchs to have Coronations in Spain.

But considering the fact that they've a crown and sceptre why don't they use it for as an example state opening of parliament?

The last time the Royal Crown was seen in public was in 1981 at the reburial of King Alfonso XIII at the El Escorial.
