In the 1800s, it was a very volatile time for Spain which was a dying empire, as a result of the defeat in the Spanish American war and domestic factors within Spain.
In the 1920s King Alfonso XIII launched a disastorous war against Morocco and that led to his demise in 1931.
After the collapse of the monarchy, local officials declared the Spanish 2nd Republic and it was led by Niceto Alcala Zamora. Niceto tried to liberalize the new Spanish Republic and it angered nationalist forces while communist forces were dissatisfied at the fact they were so slow.
When the great depression hit and Spain was hurt badly by it, communist trade unions carried out strikes and the Republican government cracked down leading to fury among the different communist factions.
The aftermath led to the communist CNT boycotting the election and the nationalists took power and began reversing reforms of the liberal and communist forces.
In Asturias in 1934, the CNT tried to carry out a communist revolution, but the terrorist uprising was defeated when Francisco Franco and his army of Africa defeated the communists.
After the 1936 General Election, there was a narrow victory (by 0.55%) for a chaotic divided coalition of leftists who’s only unifying feature was hatred of the right. Manuel Azaña who was more of a liberal compared to his communist and anarchist partners, became President.
Once Manuel Azaña took power, the Falange Party leader José Antonio Primo de Rivera was jailed and then executed. As the chaos and power vacuum grew in Spain as the leftist forces were fighting each other while subsequently fighting the nationalists, the nationalist forces in the military began moves to unify as the Azaña regime was going after the nationalist half of Spain and especially religion.
In 1936, Spain would descend into civil war between the nationalists and the different leftist forces. As the civil war the communists would really play the most dominant role on the left though almost every leftist force would engage in the red terror across Spain.
The communist terror forces unleashed a severe reign of terror on the Christians of Spain including massacring thousands of priests, desecrating and burning thousands of monasteries throughout Spain. To a lesser extent the communists were also going after Muslims who largely sided with the nationalists to defeat the red plague.
The civil war started with taking Seville, Castile and Leon, and parts of Galicia in 1936. They would connect the nationalist territory after the Battle of Merida in August 1936. Towards the end of September, Francisco Franco would rescue his outnumbered forces in the Siege of Alcazar and his title would become Caudillo.
As the civil war went on throughout Spain, the Republican government in Madrid collapsed due to internal divisions and a government much more dominated by the communists came in, angering the anarchists. Madrid would become under siege but for years the city would not fall while nationalists focused on other territory nearby.
Franco would end up chasing the communists north and cutting the territory in two isolating Catalonia from the rest of the communist controlled territory. On January 26th, 1939, the communists lost Barcelona and the rest of Catalonia.
On March 28th, the nationalists finally liberated Madrid and the Spanish nationalists triumphed against the communist butchers who unleashed so much hell on Spain.
From 1939 to 1975, Francisco Franco led the Spanish nation as the last great genuine nationalist leader and anti Zionist Europe had.
