This section needs to edited for inacuracy. It states the the head of the military household does not advise the king on military affairs, this is not the case. He is the highest ranking officer in the royal household and as such advises the the king on any and all military matters that the king puts to him. He is also the main channel of communication between the King and the Defense Ministry, parliamentary acts,royal decrees and appointments relating to the military are presented for the king's consent by this officer. The Commander of the royal guard takes his orders from the head of the military household. --Marked4life (talk) 02:54, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
If someone had the inclination, patience, and judgment, I would suggest fleshing out the History of the Spanish Monarchy in its own page. Much is necessarily glossed over in this section as there simply is not enough room (on the page as a whole) to give due weight to the subject.♦Drachenfyre♦·Talk 18:11, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
What's this proposed change in the law of succession? This would be a huge break from the hundred years of the tradition of the Castillian male-preference primogeniture... The current royal house is very prestigious, as it belongs to the Capetian dynasty, the oldest royal house in Europe... That would all change if a female succeeds to the throne...

Zapatero stated that it is his government's intention to amend the constitution for full and equal absolute primogeniture, where the first-born inherits the throne regardless of gender, and the oppositional People's Party agrees. Also, the king and Prince of Asturias seem to agree as well. The king already changed the default succession laws for noble titles from male preference primogeniture to absolute primogeniture. Whether or not this affects "the prestige" of the royal family is a matter of debate, I do not think it will matter to anyone really but the family members concerned. Any children of the future Queen Leonor may in fact chose to continue to use the Borbon dynasty name, or not. Legally it is their personal choice. It’s a personal matter for them I suppose. ♦Drachenfyre♦·Talk 04:45, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
