MADRID. Accion Serie C de 50 Pts. Serie C. green, black. No 4096. A few tiny edge-splits in left border, outside the printed part of the share. One of the largest share certificates we have ever seen (51x59cm). Large vignette of a painting by the Polish painter Juliusz F. Kossak (1824-1899), dated 1878 and showing Basque soldiers fighting on the Carlist side in the civil war of 1873-6. Also a royal coat-of-arms, including the Carlist symbol of the pierced heart. The Carlists, known as the tradicionalistas, have been the supporters of Don Carlos, brother of King Ferdinand VII, who tried, by force of arms, to reverse his alterations to the Spanish succession laws. Previously, royal succession could pass only to male heirs. Ferdinand wished his daughter Isabel to be his successor as ruler of Spain. Carlos rebelled against Queen Maris Cristina, regent for the young Isabel, but lost. Among his supporters were the Basques, whose claim for self-determination was supported by Carlos. His great-nephew, also Don Carlos, tried again after the downfall of IsabelII in 1873, again with the support of the Basques, but again lost. The Carlist are still a force on the right-wing of Spanish politics today. The Carlist wars are the root of much of the ill-feeling between the Basques and the Spanish today. This company was a printing house promoting the Carlist cause. A most unusual and extremely rare share.
