L'ENDEMÀ DE L'11 DE SETEMBRE / DAY AFTER SEPTEMBER 11th

VERSIÓ ORIGINAL EN CATALÀ


ENGLISH AND SPANISH VERSION (w/brief Introduction)


In the 17th Century, during the War of Succession that occurred in the kingdoms of the Iberian Peninsula, the Crown of Castile gave support to Philip of Bourbon. The Kingdom of Aragon, the Principality of Catalonia and the kingdoms of Valencia and Mallorca were  sovereign and had been part of the federation of the Crown of Aragon or Catalan-Aragonese since the 13th Century. These kingdoms aligned with the pretender Charles of Austria. He offered them sincere guarantees of respect for the constitutions and liberties of the Catalan-Aragonese federation. The victory of Philip of Bourbon meant the end of the rights and privileges of the kingdoms of the Crown of Aragon and they were unified under the laws of Castile. Barcelona fell on 11th September 1714 against the forces of Philip V of Bourbon.
