Francisco Franco was a Spanish general who took control of Spain after the Spanish Civil War (1936–1939) and established a military dictatorship which he presided over until his death in 1975. An authoritarian ruler, he was highly ambitious from a young age. Hailing from a military family background, he rose to become the youngest general in Spain in the 1920s; he was also one of the youngest generals in Europe. His rapidly progressing military career was temporarily stalled after the fall of the monarchy in 1931 following which the leaders of the newly established Spanish Republic undertook a major military reform. His military career was eventually restored and he was appointed chief of the Spanish army’s general staff. He then conspired with several others and planned to overthrow the republic. He started a coup which led to the fierce Spanish Civil War and quickly emerged as the war’s leading military figure. He received considerable support from several fascist groups, especially Nazi Germany and the Kingdom of Italy, and went on to win the bloody war which left half a million dead. Establishing an autocratic dictatorship, he ruled as the nation’s undisputed leader until his death in 1975. He restored the monarchy before his death, making King Juan Carlos I his successor.
