The History of Spain 1h 19m 24s
Discover Spain’s turbulent history with our Viking Resident Historian, Paul Dawson, and learn how it emerged from isolation to become a modern European state.

By the late 17th century, however, Spain’s empire started to unravel, and by the time of the Spanish-American War in 1898, the process was complete. In the wake of the Spanish Civil War of the 1930’s, decades of rule by Franco would later give way to democracy and, finally, membership in the European Union.
