Most important Spaniard? Not Columbus.

Breaking News

King Juan Carlos, 69, has been elected the most important Spaniard in history, well ahead of Don Quixote author Miguel de Cervantes and navigator Christopher Columbus, who came next.

The results of a poll among more than 3,000 Spaniards were presented Tuesday night at a television show called "The Spaniard of history."

The show staged by the private channel Antena 3 showed the popularity of the royal family. Queen Sofia took the fourth, Crown Prince Felipe the 7th and his wife Letizia the 15th place among the 100 most important Spaniards.
