Principality of Andorra | Principat d’Andorra

Andorra is a tiny, landlocked European country, nestled high in the Pyrenees between the borders of Spain and France. For 715 years, from 1278 to 1993, Andorrans lived under a unique coprincipality, ruled by French and Spanish leaders, until 1993, when this feudal system was modified with a modern constitution. However, Andorra retains its status as one of the rare diarchies in the world: two co-princes remain as heads of state, more as a traditional ideal than anything else. The diarchs are the President of France and the Bishop of Urgell.
