 History in Focus: Elizabeth I and James VI and I - review of The Right to be King
This was another early attempt to define laws of succession, and it is striking that it emerged from a dynasty in turmoil, one only recently established on a throne, one which had implicitly accepted the law of election in order to advance to royal rank and one which was divided by profound familial strife.
The rights of Karl Xl to his father's throne were not questioned, but Karl X Gustaf's will was overturned in order to restrict the political influence of his widow on the regency council for her underaged son and to exclude, contrary to the dead king's wishes, his brother from the council entirely.
Secondly, while succession by nomination retained juridical validity into the eighteenth century, the successful candidate, as was so frequently the case, had to belong to the pool of princes perceived by the political nation as having some blood right to the crown.

His adherents seem to ignore the fact that the succession laws required each dynast to be born of an equal marriage, that is, born of a marriage of a dynast to a spouse of royal birth (or, to be more precise, to a spouse who was a member of a royal or sovereign dynasty).
For at least the last 80 years of the monarchy, male dynasts were listed in the court calendar by primogeniture in the order of their succession to the throne, while female dynasts were listed according to other criteria unrelated to the succession.
Under the succession laws, as amended in 1886, dynasts who were sons and grandsons of an emperor had the title of Grand Duke, and dynasts of more distant descent (that is, great-grandsons and their descendants) had the title of Prince of Russia.

The War of the Spanish Succession, from 1702 to 1714, was made almost inescapable by the mere fact of inheritance of the Spanish [352] crown by a French Bourbon prince.
Spanish enlightened despotism had no more of a theory of politics or representative constitutionalism than did any other contemporary continental monarchy, but the crown's ministers saw the wisdom of involving the more capable middle class subjects in decisions on the lower levels of administration.

The union of the Spanish kingdoms of Aragón and Castile was effected in 1469 by Ferdinand's marriage to his cousin Isabella I, queen of Castile.
She was made heir apparent by a decree that set aside the Salic Law forbidding the succession of a woman, and ascended the throne on the death of her father in 1833, her mother Maria Christina being appointed queen regent.
This resulted in the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-14), in which France and Spain were matched against an alliance formed by England, the Netherlands, Austria, and several of the German states and subsequently joined by Portugal and Savoy.

 Socialist Appeal - The Spanish Revolution
It summed up the lessons of the Spanish revolution and served as a contribution to the rearming of the new generation of workers and youth in the Spanish young socialists, the UGT and the PSOE.
The Spanish students who, for the same general reasons as the officers, were recruited primarily from the dissatisfied youth, became accustomed to playing a role in the country altogether out of proportion to their numbers.
In order to grasp this properly it must first be understood that the establishment of the economic dominance of the big bourgeoisie, and the growth of the political significance of the proletariat, definitely deprive the petty bourgeoisie of the possibility of occupying a leading position in the political life of the country.

 Unequal Marriages in Spain: the Pragmática of 1776
In particular, certain matters such as the succession to the throne were in principle regulated by either written laws or long-standing custom; and, in the 18th century, the only occasion on which the Cortes continued to meet was to proclaim the heir to the throne as Prince of Asturias.
A law of succession was approved by a referendum of July 26, 1947, and modified by an organic law of 10 Jan 1967, without substantially affecting the mechanism of succession.
So the general topics of exclusion from the succession and regulation of marriages are not absent from the constitutions, and it cannot be argued that they were overlooked, ignored, or left to be governed implicitly by the pragmática.
