Good to know!
I checked. Francisco Paulino Hermenegildo Teódulo Franco y Bahamonde, Salgado-Araujo y Pardo de Andrade is even more dead. From WP: "Owing to Franco's human rights record, in 2007, the Spanish government banned all public references to the Franco regime and removed any statues, street names, memorials and symbols associated with the regime. Churches which retain plaques commemorating Franco and the victims
of his Republican opponents may lose state aid. The national anthem of Spain, the Marcha Real
, is no longer accompanied by the lyrics introduced by Franco."
