Biographical dates - Period of existence1711 -
Other InformationFue fundada por Felipe V a finales de 1711 y abrió sus puertas en marzo de 1712 como Real Biblioteca Pública. Por un privilegio real, precedente del actual depósito legal, los impresores debían depositar un ejemplar de los libros impresos en España. En 1836, la Biblioteca dejó de ser propiedad de la corona y pasó a depender del Ministerio de la Gobernación, y recibió por primera vez el nombre de Biblioteca Nacional.

During the Spanish Civil War, the library was closed, and many of its most valuable books and works were moved to Valencia. The exterior of the library was damaged during the war, but fortunately, the precious books and volumes that were left housed inside were not. Also many private works were confiscated from families, churches and palaces during the war and stored inside the library. Some were not returned after the war, so one could argue that the library is home to several “stolen” works, a matter of some controversy.
