largely dates from the 17th century, with 18th century additions. In 1842, the garrison (loyal to the Madrid government) shelled parts of the city. It served as a prison, often holding political prisoners, until the time of General Franco (Francisco Franco). The castle was also the site of numerous executions. In 1897, an incident popularly known as ''Els processos de Montjuïc'' prompted the execution of anarchist (anarchism) supporters, which then led to a severe repression

natural power

in the development of the steam engine. Offering a dramatic increase in fuel efficiency, the new design replaced Newcomen engines in areas where coal was expensive, and then went on to be used in the place of most natural power sources such as wind and water. James Watt's design became synonymous with steam engines, due in no small part to his business partner, Matthew Boulton. However, a Commission of Enquiry (Parnell Commission), which Parnell had requested, revealed in February 1889 after 128 sessions that the letters were a fabrication created by Richard Pigott, a disreputable anti-Parnellite rogue journalist. Pigott broke down under cross-examination after the letter was shown to be a forgery by him with his characteristic spelling mistakes. He fled to Madrid where he committed suicide. Parnell was vindicated, to the disappointment of the Tories and the Prime Minister, Lord Salisbury.

Lithuanian Airlines (branded later as FlyLAL) was established as the Lithuanian flag carrier following independence in 1991 and inherited the Vilnius-based Aeroflot fleet of Tupolev Tu-134, Yakovlev Yak-40, Yak-42 and Antonov An-24, An-26 aircraft, but rapidly replaced these Soviet-era aircraft types with modern Boeing 737 and Boeing 757 jets and Saab 340, Saab 2000 turboprops. Operations were suspended effective 17 January 2009 as a result of growing financial difficulties. With the collapse of flyLAL, the airport lost its scheduled services to Amsterdam, Budapest, Istanbul, Madrid and Tbilisi. flyLAL used to operate to Dublin, Frankfurt, London, Milan and Paris in competition with Aer Lingus, airBaltic or Lufthansa. The intimate scenes were filmed in Hollywood, but Kubrick insisted that all battle scenes be filmed on a vast plain outside Madrid. Eight thousand trained soldiers from the Spanish infantry (Spanish Army) were used to double as the Roman army. Kubrick directed the armies from the top of specially constructed towers. However, he eventually had to cut all but one of the gory battle scenes, due to negative audience reactions at preview screenings (Trailer (promotion)). In

to a local journal, ''La Abeja montañesa'' in 1858. He also wrote much in a weekly paper, ''El Tío Cayetín'', and in 1864 he collected his powerful realistic sketches of local life and manners under the title of ''Escenas montañesas'' ("Mountain scenes"). His ''Guerra de Granada'' (concerning the 1568 Morisco Revolt in the Alpujarras) was published in Madrid in 1610 and in Lisbon by Luis Tribaldos de Toledo in 1627; the delay was doubtless due to Mendoza's severe criticism of contemporaries who survived him. A complete edition was not published until 1730. In some passages the author deliberately imitates Sallust and Tacitus; his style is, on the whole, vivid and trenchant, his information is exact, and in critical insight he is not inferior to Juan de Mariana. The chief work of Sanchez and the only one which he himself edited, is the ''Disputationes de sancti matrimonii sacramento''. The first edition is said to have appeared at Genoa in 1602; but this can have been only the first folio (folio (printing)) volume, for which permission to print was secured in 1599, as the two succeeding volumes contain both in their preface and the author's dedication the date 1603. The first complete edition was, according to Sommervogel, that of Madrid, 1605; later followed a series of editions printed at different places both before and after the author's death. The last edition seems to have been issued at Venice in 1754. '''Club Deportivo Leganés, S.A.D.''' is a Spanish football team (List of football clubs in Spain) from Leganés, in the Madrid outskirts. Founded on 26 June 1928, it currently plays in ''Segunda División B'', holding home games at ''Estadio Municipal de Butarque'', which seats 8,000 spectators. García de Enterría is a member of the Royal Spanish Academy (''Real Academia Española de la Lengua''). He has been awarded Doctor ''honoris causa'' by the University of Paris (1977), the University of Bologne (1992), the University of Zaragoza (1983), the University of Mendoza (Argentina – 1986), the University of Tucuman (Argentina, 1986), the University of Nuevo León (Mexico, 1987), the University of Benito Juárez de Durango (Mexico, 1987), the University of Valladolid (1992), the University of Carlos III (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid) (Madrid, 1993), Cantabria University (1995), Universidad Externado de Colombia (1995), Oviedo, Santiago de Compostela (1996), the University of Málaga (1999), the University of Buenos Aires (2000) and the University of Córdoba (National University of Córdoba) (Argentina, 2001). In his twentieth year he matriculated (matriculation) at the University of Seville, but his career as a student was undistinguished. In Seville he made acquaintance with García Gutiérrez (Antonio García Gutiérrez), who is reported to have encouraged his dramatic ambitions and to have given him the benefit of his own experience as a playwright. Early in 1850, Ayala removed his name from the university books, and settled in Madrid with the purpose of becoming a professional dramatist. Though he had no friends and no influence, he speedily found an opening. A four-act play in verse, ''Un Hombre de Estado'', was accepted by the managers of the Teatro Español, was given on 25 January 1851, and proved a remarkable success.

Despite the limited success in terms of album sales, this helped Dover manage to gain a foothold in the music scene in Madrid and even recorded their first music video "Come With Me" by John Bouillon, but this song was not released as a single properly, though it was the most demanded for at concerts by fans. In 2006, doctor fish spa resorts opened in Hakone, Japan, and in Umag, Croatia, where the fish are used to clean the bathers at the spa.

He scored a couple of goals in some friendlies, but it was his substitute appearance in a crucial 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifier (2006 FIFA World Cup qualification (UEFA)) against Spain (Spain national football team) in Madrid during September 2005 that brought him international recognition. After an atrocious first-half at the Vicente Calderón Stadium, during which Serbia-Montenegro rarely crossed the centre line, only being 1–0 down, coach Petković threw Žigić into the mix, and his towering presence up front changed the flow of the match instantly. He would later set up the equalizer, also providing Mateja Kežman with a 2–1 chance, but the ball was clipped wide of Iker Casillas' gaping half-empty net. However, Serbia got the key away point and confirmed their World Cup qualification at home in Belgrade versus Bosnia-Herzegovina (Bosnia and Herzegovina national football team), with Žigić again nicely setting up Kežman for the game's only goal. birth_date 12 July 1651 birth_place Royal Alcazar (Alcázar of Madrid), Madrid, Spain death_date 12 March 1673 (aged 21) There are other pictures of her, also painted by Velázquez (Diego Velázquez) at various stages of her childhood, where she is shown wearing Baroque dresses, which were typical of the court of Madrid during the Spanish Golden Age.
