By 30/01/2019

During a tour through Andalusia, Henry IV of Castile is the first Christian monarch to visit Gibraltar.

 


 

The Kingdom of Gibraltar was one of the many historic substantive titles pertaining to the Castilian monarchy and its successor, the Spanish monarchy, belonging to what is known as Grand Title (Spanish: Título Grande). It was added to the monarchy titles by the King Henry, upon the addition of Gibraltar to the Crown patrimony in 1462.
