The Second Spanish Republic (Segunda República Española) was the republican regime that existed in Spain from 1931 to 1939, preceded by the Restoration and followed by Francoist Spain after the Spanish Civil War.
It was proclaimed when King Alfonso XIII left the country following municipal elections in which anti-monarchist candidates won the majority of votes, and the Spanish population celebrated the beginning of the Republic and social pressure made the political regime change. Its government went into exile on April 1, 1939, when the last of the Republican forces surrendered to the rebel nacionales, led in part by Francisco Franco, ending the Spanish Civil War. The government in exile of the Second Spanish Republic kept an embassy in Mexico City until 1976. After the restoration of democracy in Spain, the government was formally dissolved the following year.
Through our network we promote a series of activities and projects that deal with the management and dissemination of memorial policies related to the main conflicts of the 20th century and other historic periods that have a public influence in the actuality.
