The Spanish Monarchy (Spanish: Monarquía española) is the parliamentary monarchy of Spain. The King or Queen of Spain (Rey de España or Reina de España) is the Head of state and the Commander-in-chief of the Royal Armed Forces. The Monarch's power is mainly symbolic, because all royal acts must be countersigned by either the Prime Minister of Spain or the President of the Congress of Deputies to be valid. The current King is Juan Carlos I, who is styled as "His Majesty." The monarchy is established in Title II, articles 56 to 65 of the Spanish Constitution of 1978 (in which it is referred to as the Crown of Spain, corona de España).
