The Bourbon dynasty have done more evil than good wherever it was established and Spain couldn´t be an exception.

What´s a king for?

When I wrote "Rephrasing a poet´s poem" (see my portfolio here) I tried to explain what the poet had written and its title is a suitable one on these days; not only in Spain where the king has abdicated on behalf of his son, but I was also thinking of the remaining monarchies in old Europe, although, I could also think of the criminal ones in African and Arab countries linked to foreign powers and to the capital.
In no time, Prince Felipe from Spain will take over from his father to sit on the throne with the name of Fellipe The Sixth. It´s predictable that on such a day (June 19) there´ll be many policemen in the streets, patrolling in and around the Congress and in the city centre of Madrid. This Prince, like his father, doesn´t live in the Royal Palace as all of his ancestors did, but he might as well wish to give a touch of splendor to the ceremony of his coronation, going from the palace to the Congress.
The Bourbon dynasty has done more evil than good in all of its territories and Spain couldn´t be an exception. God saved the new king from republican anger and unrest. He won´t have it easy and he´ll have to deal with rampant corruption on which some members of his family, including his parents, are immersed in it as well as growing unrest because of recession.
God saved the new king of Spain from this republican anger because nobody else will do it.

I´ve learnt few things on the British royal family and apart that they aren´t such British family, there´re other issues that no one would like to know and that they´re top secret. M5 or 6 knows. We´ve to know history to learn from it.
