Francisco Franco was born on December 4, 1892, in El Ferrol, a small coastal town on Spain’s northwestern tip. Until age 12, Franco attended a private school run by a Catholic priest. He then entered a naval secondary school with the goal of following his father and grandfather into a naval military career.
A lifelong military figure in Spain, Francisco Franco rose through the ranks. During 1935 he was named chief of staff of the Spanish Army. When the social and economic structure of Spain, in the governing hands of the left, began to crumble, Franco joined the growing rebel movement. He soon led an uprising and took control of Spain after the Spanish Civil War. From then until his 1975 death, he presided over a military dictatorship.
He was educated at Toledo Infantry Academy, after the Spanish Government temporarily suspended the admission of cadets into the naval Academy, graduating 3 years later.
