The 19th century was a sad time for Madrid with bloody historical events such as the rising of the city against French occupation on May 2nd 1808, and the beginning of the Spanish war of Independence.

In the 20th century after the death of General Franco, the Spanish Constitution of 1978 confirmed Madrid as capital city of Spain. In 1979, the first democratic local elections were held in Madrid to choose the first city mayor.

Madrid is the Capital of Spain. Madrid is Spain's second largest industrial center after Barcelona. It provides aircraft, agricultural machinery, and leather goods. Madrid is the center of national government, finance, and insurance.
