30 JANUARY 2015

King Felipe of Spain celebrates his 47th birthday on 30 January. The handsome royal, who will be marking his first birthday as Spain's king, is expected to spend the birthday with his wife Queen Letizia and daughters Leonor and Sofia.

1. Born in Madrid on 30 January 1968, Felipe was the youngest child of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, who already had daughters Infantas Elena and Cristina. At the time of his birth, Felipe was not heir-apparent, as his father had not yet become king.

2. Like many royals, Prince Felipe has competed in the Olympics. The athletic royal was a member of the Spanish sailing team in 1992 at the Barcelona Games like his father King Juan Carlos two decades before.

3. On 2 June 2014, Felipe's father announced he would be abdicating in favour of his son, and several weeks later on 19 June, Felipe ascended the throne with celebrations being marked across Spain.

Thousands march for leftist Podemos party in Spain

MADRID, Spain -- Hundreds of thousands of people marched through Madrid on Saturday in a show of strength by a fledgling radical leftist party, which hopes to emulate the success of Greece's Syriza party in the Spanish general election later this year.

Podemos supporters from across Spain converged around the Cibeles fountain Saturday before packing the avenue leading to Puerta del Sol square in what was the party's largest rally to date.

State broadcaster TVE said that hundreds of thousands were at the march, but no official attendance figures were provided.
Podemos ("We Can") aims to shatter the country's predominantly two-party system and the "March for Change" gathered crowds in the same place where sit-in protests against political and financial corruption laid the party's foundations in 2011.

The party's rise is greatly due to the charisma of its pony-tailed leader, Pablo Iglesias, a 36-year-old political science professor.
Hailing from the Madrid working class neighbourhood of Vallecas, Iglesias prefers jeans and rolled up shirt sleeves to a suit and tie and champions slogans such as Spain is "run by the butlers of the rich" and that the economy must serve the people.
