“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.

Hi,

I'm getting rid of lots of royal books for lack of space at home. In case someone is interested in these two books, please contact me to speak better.

I think I know what happened to the second edition of the Preston bio of JC....

Although this isn’t a book specifically about Spanish royalty, this looks like an important book esp for the families financial affairs and the historical context of the last decades scandals:

Paul Preston, A People Betrayed: A History of Corruption, Political Incompetence and Social Division in Modern Spain 1874-2018, 2020

http://https://books.google.co.nz/books/about/A_People_Betrayed_A_History_of_Corruptio.html?id=t4T9DAAAQBAJ&redir_esc=y

Quote:
Drawing on more than forty years of research, A PEOPLE BETRAYED reveals the extent of the devastating betrayal of Spain by its political class, its military and its Church. In 1898 Spain was in utter despair. With the catastrophic defeat at the hands of the United States and a succession of collapsing dictatorships and democracies to contend with, this mounting anguish culminated in the devastating Civil War. So terrible were the Civil War and the nearly four decades of dictatorship that followed it that it seemed as if the pattern had been broken. Indeed, the transition to democracy in the 1970s came to be considered as a model for other countries in Eastern Europe and Latin America. But the spectacular boom of the first years of membership of the European Economic Community masked the fact that the underlying issues had not been fully resolved. The present crisis facing Spain is the result of an incomplete transition.A PEOPLE BETRAYED covers the lives of the individuals, heroes and villains who made a huge difference - the dictators Primo de Rivera and Franco, the mass murders of the Civil War, and important statesman such as Manuel Azaña, Juan Negrín and Ramon Serrano Suñer, and rise and subsequent discrediting of the monarchy of King Juan Carlos and the extremists of right and left. Paul Preston, a specialist in Spanish History at the LSE, argues that there is a curious pattern in Spain's modern history, arising from a reoccurring disconnect between the social reality and the political powers ruling over it.
The title is admittedly a tad melodramatic and these issues are not just confined to Spain, but given Preston's record, looks highly valuable.

would a subject give his wife away to a king and he did it was out of complex and inferiority toi the king as he is a sovereign,but this generation new,if the princess married just to be a princess the the married is null for if her ex loved her and provided for her then the vow between the individual and the holy roman catholic doctrine states for better and for worse and if the women left it to ubgrade her status then it is null,but if it was mutualy ended and rthe prince and princess finds peace and love and the prince has no problem with a subjects knowledge of his princess then the marriiage takes effect,whether thses and others wher put into account remains a mystery.

‘Letizia. La reina impaciente: ¿Qué significa ser reina en el siglo XXI?'

New book about Queen Letizia by Leonardo Faccio.

The author spoke to several people who knew Letizia, such as ex-boyfriends, Letizia's ex-husband and father.

This biographical profile presents Letizia Ortiz for the first time with all its strengths and contradictions: her relentless pursuit of perfection, perpetual discontent with herself, her eagerness to control everything, but also her impetus, audacity and rebellion. The life of the woman who in less than ten years went from a block of apartments in Oviedo to be a television presenter in Madrid and who ended up being princess and queen of Spain. After five years and over a hundred interviews, Leonardo Faccio radiographs the personality of the queen, a journalist who renounces her profession but not her personal battles to be part of a monarchy in crisis that wants to modernize to survive.

A friend of mine recently took part in a quiz in which her team were asked to name all the monarchs of England within a particular time period, and they were rather annoyed at being told they'd missed a point for not including Philip. I did the Tudors in great detail for A-level history, and I'm still not sure that I'd have thought to include him! His holding the title of King of England is always conveniently ignored, because he's the Big Baddie who sent the Armada and was defeated after Elizabeth's famous speech at Tilbury and all the rest of it!

I would not have considered Philip as King of England...

I wouldn't either, and I definitely wouldn't whilst under pressure in a quiz situation. He's never included in lists of English monarchs …. but I suppose he was, technically, unlike Princes George, Albert and Philip, who definitely weren't/aren't.
