 Unequal Marriages in Spain: the Pragmática of 1776
In 1814 the French were expelled from Spain and Ferdinand VII returned to the throne (the Cortes of Cadiz had recognized Carlos IV's abdication, but not that of Ferdinand VII); he immediately disowned the Cortes of Cadiz and, by a proclamation of May 4, 1814, annulled all of their decrees and promulgations.
During the transition period that followed, the existing Cortes were persuaded to pass a law of political reform (November 1976) that paved the way for the peaceful and free election of a democratic Cortes in June 1977.
