Today, we are speaking about the reason why the national anthem of Spain has no lyrics. It seems that it originates from the song called “Marcha Granadera”,from the XVIII th century and it was composed by an unknown author.
This anthem is of popular origin of the citizens of the XVIII th century, Rey Carlos III declared it as the Marcha de Honor 1770, it was customised and turned into the national anthen.
Throughout history there have always been people who have wanted to put lyrics to our anthem but we continue without them..
During the Republic between 1931 and 1939, the Himno de Riesgo was sung with lyrics.
During the Civil war, Francisco Franco restored the Marcha Granadera in its territories, making it the official anthem in the whole of Spain after the victory. In this form some score of the anthem does not appear, which makes us understand that it continued with that of Pérez Casas.
Finally, you can listen to the current national anthem of Spain knowing that they keep threatening to put lyrics, although I like this way.
It seems that we are not the only Country that has no lyrics in our national anthem, there exists another two which are: San Marino and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
