The Feast Day instituted in 1895 by Charles VII, King of Spain, in a letter while in exile in Venice to his Deputy, the Marquis of Cerralbo: «a national holiday in honor of the martyrs who, since the beginning of the nineteenth century, have perished in the shadow of the banner of God, Fatherland and King, on the battlefields, in exile, in dungeons and hospitals; and I designate to celebrate it on the tenth day of March each year, the day on which is commemorated the anniversary of the death of my grandfather Charles V». «We must seek help from the souls of those who have preceded us in this centuries-long struggle, and honor their memory in every conceivable way, so that they may serve as encouragement and example to the young and keep alive in them the sacred fire of love for God, the Fatherland, and King».
