I though it was a little strange, king Felipe VI of Spain could do a better job to chose a wife as his consort, ex queen Sofia was AGAINST the marriage with Letizia Ortiz.

New book about the Spanish monarchy.

«The Crown in Spain. From the Gothic kings to Felipe VI» (Ed. La Esfera de los Libros) traces the indissoluble union of Spain and the Monarchy.

I have in Audible one of my favorite history books 'on tape' that is also in Kindle form

La Gran aventura del reino de Asturias: Así empezó la reconquista

The Great/Grand Adventure of the Kingdom of Asturias: This is how the Reconquista started

The book's 60 chapters is also in YouTube if you are familiar with the Spanish language and want to listen to it in the background. The narration is from two youtubers because is not the same voice actor that I have on my Audible copy. And this version is much more animated by the couple taking turns reading the book than my copy with a solo narrator.
