The Spanish Real Academia de la Historia di Spagna, a most prestigious institution for the study of history – political, military, scientific, literary, art and cultural — will be directed by a woman for the first time in the 278 years of its existence. Elected with almost 80 per cent of the votes (23 out of 30 voters voted for her), Carmen Iglesias (Madrid, 1942), a modern historian who teaches the history of moral and political ideas at Juan Carlos i University, will in fact head the institution for four years from the coming March.
