Origin: 10.2.1931, David Low
Purpose: This comic shows Alfonso XIII trying to "win" back this woman who represents all Spanish people right before the second republic in Spain came about.
Value:  This cartoon was published only a few days before Berenguer resigned, showing the political situation Spain was in.  Two months after this cartoon was published the second republic was proclaimed.
Limitations: Alfonso XIII is depicted as serenading the Spanish people, looking content however this does not accurately show Alfonso XIII at the time the cartoon was published.
