Spain King Lover

“Why are you stabbing my illusion? / Oh, just cause I stole some eagles wings? / Because you named me as your lover / Well, I thought I could be anything”

I initially wanted to pick something else off “The Wild Hunt” to talk about since King of Spain has already received so much press, but hell, it’s too good not to. Who knows? Maybe I’ll get lucky and till up something new.

This song first struck me as wildly triumphant — the ramblings of an infatuated fool fueled by the passions of a blossoming relationship. Hear how he strums and hollers with such abandon? How the song positively gallops? He’s on top of the world! “Sorry babe, your love is just so intoxicating, I got carried away and crowned myself the King of Spain, ” he seems to be saying. What a wonderfully cheerful song!

Not so fast though. As closer listens (okay, an interview with Tallest Man, Kristian Matsson) revealed, and the jumpy dynamics suggested, there’s more afoot here. While it is indeed inspired by a relationship and its accompanying passions, they’re not of the variety for which he’s aiming. Instead, he’s been sidelined as a mere lover — a role with which Matsson is predictably less than satisfied. As one comment I read somewhere succinctly put it, “he wants to be the whole enchilada [or more appropriately, hog], the King of Spain.” The Crucible warns us that “a promise is made in bed.” It’s helpful to be reminded that between genders, this principle can run both ways.

Who were the king and queen of spain in 1492?

There was not a king and queen of Spain in 1492.
Ferdinand II ruled Aragon and co-ruled Leon and Castile with Queen Isabel I.
Isabel I was Queen of Castile and Leon and co-ruled Aragon with Ferdinand.
They ruled those three kingdoms together but were only the Monarchs of their own kingdom(s). Consequently they were not the monarchs of Spain. Nor were their children.
Spain was only unified when all three kingdoms were inherited by their grandson Carlos I of Spain in 1516. At that point it became one kingdom.
Carlos I was Crowned Holy Roman Emperor in 1519, and King of Bologna on 22…

How does Columbus promote his expedition to the king and queen of Spain in 1492? | Yahoo Answers


He seduced the queen, of course.
Well, not in the biblical sense, but...he convinced her...there was flattery and sexual innuendo involved.
