“"Himno Nacional Espanol"” (National Anthem of Spain)

Spain'’s national anthem, "“Himno Nacional Espanol,"” was officially used between 1770 and 1931 and restored in 1939. The Spanish anthem is the first anthem to be officially adopted, but it has no lyrics. In the years prior to 1931, It became known as "Marcha Real" (The Royal March). It first appeared in a 1761 military bugle call book and was replaced by "Himno de Riego" in the years between 1931 and 1939. The long version of the anthem is used for the king, while the short version is used for the prince, prime minister, and occasions such as sporting events.
