In 1713, following the defeat of France and Spain in the War of Spanish Succession, the British-imposed Treaty of Utrecht declared that, while different members of the Bourbon family could rule in France and Spain, the two nations would not unite under a single monarch. This matter became irrelevant with the abolition of the French monarchy in the 19th century.
Bourbon in The Two GeorgesEdit
By the close of the 20th century, the House of Bourbon retained control over the Franco-Spanish Holy Alliance, one of the world's three superpowers. King François IV, who ruled from Versailles, was the head of this ancient dynasty.
