“Felipe VI d’Espagne. Le Roi normal” - Biography dedicated to King Felipe VI

Monarquía Confidencial has been able to confirm that this month of April will go on sale in France "Felipe VI d'Espagne. Le Roi normal "(" Felipe VI of Spain, the normal king "), a biography dedicated to Don Felipe.

The firm Jean Chalvidant. He is a doctor in civilization and Spanish culture, specialist in the department of investigation on Spain of the University Paris II Panteón Assas. He has also been researching and publishing books on Spain's recent history, from Francoism and the Transition to Democracy. He has authored a dictionary "Spain, from Franco to Zapatero", from several books on ETA terrorism and on The attack of March 11, 2004.

Chelvidant himself explains in conversation with MC that this book that will go on sale in a few days is the first biography on Felipe VI published in France: a country that Don Felipe has visited three times in the almost three years he has King, first in his "tour of presentation" and later in a more extensive state trip that was canceled in half by the accident of Germanwings and that resumed shortly after in 2015.

Already the title of the book, "The Normal King", shows the approach that has given the author. Chalvidant tries to describe to the French reader the different facets of King Felipe, and his remarkable differences with respect to his father Juan Carlos I, of which he emphasizes that "he was forced to resign" by the "avalanche of scandals" that he faced in the last months.

Of Queen Letizia stands her impetus, and of both kings her youth. To the French, it tries to attract them with the hook of whether Felipe VI and Dona Letizia will resist and overcome the challenges that endanger the monarchy: independence in Catalonia (and the Basque Country), the rise of the We can increase accessions Republican, the discredit of the traditional parties, support of the Crown ...

Chelvidant explains to Confidential Monarchy that this is not an "authorized biography," but that it is neither pro nor against the king. It is written after consulting with numerous sources from all areas of Spain that the author has been learning in his almost five decades of academic research on our country.

The book reviews the life of Philip VI, his education and his love life, until the wedding with Queen Letizia and the birth of Princess Leonor. He then explains what he calls the "anni horribiles", when Iñaki Urdangarín's "Caso Nóos" and the Infanta Cristina, the appearance of Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein and the controversial hunting in Botswana plunged the citizenship of Juan Carlos I and the monarchy.

The work begins by recounting a scene from the proclamation of Philip VI: that of the man who, to demonstrate the vulnerability of the security device, was recorded with a sniper rifle to the king on his arrival at the Palace of the Cortes to swear before the Cortes General.

"What if the Spanish monarchy is in danger?" Asks Chalvidant on the back cover of his 400-page book, edited by MA Éditions, which will go on sale for € 24.90.
