In August 2018 the Spanish government approved the exhumation of Franco's remains from Valley of the Fallen mausoleum near Madrid.


In May 2013 documents were released showing that the UK's MI6 spent the present-day equivalent of more than $200 million bribing senior Spanish military officers, ship owners and other agents to keep Spain from joining World War II on the side of the Axis Powers.


An Amnesty Law adopted in 1977 prevents any criminal investigation into the Franco years. Statues of Franco were removed and many streets were renamed, to erase obvious signs of Spain's fascist past.


In July 1974 he suffered an attack of thrombophlebitis, which that signaled a host of successive afflictions over the following 16 months: partial kidney failure, bronchial pneumonia, coagulated blood in his pharynx, pulmonary edema, bacterial peritonitis, gastric hemorrhage, endotoxic shock and finally, cardiac arrest. After relatives asked doctors to remove his support systems, he died on November 20, 1975.


In 1963, when Walter Cronkite interviewed him, Franco's questions and answers were submitted in advance and he read his prepared answers from off-camera. This may have been somewhat unusual for interviews with world leaders, but not with Franco--the only way he would grant interviews was under these conditions.


Allowed the former Croatian fascist dictator Ante Pavelic to secretly move to Spain in 1957.


Spain was admitted into the United Nations in 1955 and was soon allied with the United States and other western powers.


British National Archives files from 1953 show that Franco claimed that Spain had been promised Gibraltar in return for not attacking the colony during the Second World War. The British government of Winston Churchill denied any such agreement had been made.


Although Franco was a brutal dictator it is disputed whether his regime was a fascist one. Some historians believe Franco was originally a fascist but became more of an authoritarian by the 1950s, while other historians describe his regime as semi-fascist.


After the Axis Powers were defeated in 1945, Spain was isolated for many years before Franco tried allying himself with the west by pushing his anti-Communist "credentials".


He ended his trade with the Axis Powers in May 1944, after the United States stated it would no longer trade petroleum with Spain.


Formed the Blue Division to fight under German command against the Soviet Union from 1941 to 1944.


Franco was initially keen to join the Axis, and wrote to Hitler offering to join the war on 19 June 1940. However by the end of the year he had decided to stay out of the conflict and let Spain recover from the terrible civil war that wrecked its economy and severely weakened its military.

Nevertheless he provided considerable help to the Axis from 1940 to 1943.


With much political, financial and material support from Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler and Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolini, both of whom sent tanks, arms and even combat troops to aid him, Franco emerged as the victor, capturing the capital of Madrid on March 28, 1939, which ended the Spanish Civil War. Named "el caudillo" (the leader), dictator for life, Generalísimo Franco proved to be an astute political leader as well as a masterful military commander. Although he owed a great debt to Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy for their aid, he managed to keep Spain officially neutral during World War II despite pressure from many senior political and military leaders in the government to enter the war on the side of the Axis Powers.


Joined the Anti-Comintern Pact in 1937, and signed a revised version in November 1941.


Franco accepted and, shortly after the revolt broke out on July 17, 1936, he was named commander of the nationalist forces with the title of "Generalísimo". Although he had hoped to seize control of the government quickly, the republican forces proved to be more formidable than Franco and his conspirators had counted on, and the struggle evolved into a full-scale civil war that lasted nearly three years.


He was assigned to quell a miners' strike in the Masturias in 1934, and revealed himself to be a ruthless authoritarian by ordering the execution of over 2,000 miners and other workers who were "suspected" of being Marxists. Franco proved to be one of Spain's staunchest and most rabid anti-Communists, and as such was invited to take a leading role in a right-wing coup being planned by fellow officers to overthrow the government of the Republic of Spain, which had large numbers of Socialist and democratic members in its ruling circles.


Franco returned to Spain in 1927 to lead the National Military Academy.


In 1923 he was appointed commander of the Spanish Foreign Legion, and in 1926 at the age of 33 was named the army's youngest brigadier general.


In 1916 he won the Battle of El Biutz, which stopped Berber attacks against Spanish outposts.


He entered the Spanish Military Academy in 1907 and upon graduation three years later was commissioned as a lieutenant. His career path seemed assured after he was detailed to the colony of Spanish Morocco to fight against the Berber tribes and acquitted himself well.
