Madrid

What is Madrid known for?


radical liberal

in the European theater of operations. The election of a radical (Radicalism (historical)) liberal government in 1823 further destabilized Spain. The army - whose liberal leanings had brought the government to power - began to waver when the Spanish economy failed to improve, and in 1823, a mutiny in Madrid had to be suppressed. The Jesuits (who had been banned by Charles III (Charles III of Spain) in the 18th century, only to be rehabilitated by Ferdinand VII after his restoration) were banned again by the radical government. For the duration of liberal rule, King Ferdinand (though technically head of state) lived under virtual house arrest in Madrid. Carlos, who declared his support for the ancient, pre-Bourbon (House of Bourbon) privileges of the ''fueros'', received considerable support from the Basque country (Basque Country (autonomous community)), Aragon, and Catalonia, which valued their ancient privileges from Madrid. The insurrection seemed, at first, a catastrophic failure for the Carlists, who were quickly driven out of most of Aragon and Catalonia, and forced to cling to the uplands of Navarre by the end of 1833. At this crucial moment, however, Carlos named the Basque (Basque people) Tomás de Zumalacárregui, a veteran guerrilla (guerrilla warfare) of the Peninsular War, to be his commander-in-chief. Within a matter of months, Zumalacárregui reversed the fortunes of the Carlist cause and drove government forces out of most of Navarre, and launched a campaign into Aragon. By 1835, what was once a band of defeated guerrillas in Navarre had turned into an army of 30,000 in control of all of Spain north of the Ebro River, with the exception of the fortified ports on the northern coast. A new constitution, authored by the ''moderados'' was written in 1845. It was backed by the new Narváez government begun in May 1844, led by General Ramón Narváez, one of the original architects of the revolution against Espartero. A series of reforms promulgated by Narváez's government attempted to stabilize the situation. The ''cortes'', which had been uneasy with the settlement with the ''fueros'' at the end of the First Carlist War, were anxious to centralize the administration. The law of 8 January 1845 did just that, stifling local autonomy in favor of Madrid; the act contributed to the revolt of 1847 and the revival of Carlism in the provinces. The Electoral Law of 1846 limited the suffrage to the wealthy and established a property bar for voting. In spite of Bravo and Narváez's efforts to suppress the unrest in Spain, which included lingering Carlist sentiments and ''progressista'' supporters of the old Espartero government, Spain's situation remained uneasy. A revolt led by Martín Zurbano in 1845 included the support of key generals, including Juan Prim, who was imprisoned by Narváez. '''''Aquí no hay quien viva''''' (Spanish (Spanish language), 'No One Could Live Here' or, translated more freely, 'This Place is Awful') is a Spanish (Spain) television comedy focusing on the inhabitants of the fictional building in ''Desengaño 21'', ''Calle Desengaño'' being a street between the Districts of Gran Via and Chueca in Madrid. The episodes debuted on the Antena 3 (Antena 3 (Spain)) network, and were later rerun by the same network as well as cable satellite channels Factoría de Ficción and Paramount Comedy (Paramount Comedy (Spain)). Antena 3 Internacional satellite channel broadcasts the series to Latin America. The series debuted in 2003 and became popular thanks to its funny characters, witty script, and capacity to integrate and poke fun at contemporary issues; the program presents a caustic satire of many of the 'types' found in Spanish society.
