Two countries at war for 172 years...

and no one knew.


In 1807, due to an alliance with Napoleon, 13,355 Spanish soldiers arrived in Denmark with the mission of protecting the Danish coasts from possible British landings. They were received with gratitude by the Danes, and even Andersen wrote a poem dedicated to soldiers that came from the South. A year later, Napoleon broke the alliance with Spain occupying Madrid on his way to Portugal (May 2, 1808). The State of war was declared with France and therefore with Denmark.


The war, declared in 1809, came to an end with the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1814. Everything was forgotten ... until in 1981 an archivist from Huéscar, a small town in Granada, discovered that his municipality had declared the war on their own to Denmark, and s peace was not officially signed. Suddenly, in the middle of the transition to democracy, Spain (or a part of it) was at war with Denmark and as a result could not enter NATO.


Quickly, the local government of Huéscar set to work to sign the peace, and after hundreds of colorful tribulations that we will tell about in the documentary, Danes and Spaniards formally signed the peace, with a series of celebrations, in Huéscar November 11, 1981, leaving images for history that could be taken from an Asterix comic.


In the middle of the Cold War, Ronald Reagan and Brézhnev, the leaders of the powers of that moment, were unexpectedly involved in this episode. We will get into details ...
