Principat d’Andorra
  • Barry Turner
Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)


The status of Andorra was regulated by the Paréage of 1278 which placed Andorra under the joint suzerainty of the Comte de Foix and of the Bishop of Urgel. The rights vested in the house of Foix passed by marriage to that of Bearn and, on the accession of Henri IV, to the French crown. A democratic constitution was adopted in 1993.
