November 27th, 1975 - Juan Carlos becomes king of Spain


Following Francos death on November 27th 1975 Juan Carlos ascends to the Spanish throne. Dictator Francisco Franco had appointed Juan Carlos as his successor. But Juan Carlos did not continue the legacy of the dictator. He leads Spain to parliamentary democracy however at the price of an amnesty law. This calms the former power elite surrounding Franco because the law provides that the massive human rights violations during the Franco era will go unpunished and suggests to simply close the chapter on the atrocities committed by the dictatorship during the Civil War.
