Sure, please tell me who Mr. Carrero Blanco was?
Luis Carrero Blanco, a Spanish admiral and politician, rose to prominence during Francisco Franco's regime, becoming Prime Minister in 1973. Known for his staunch conservatism and unwavering loyalty to Franco, Blanco's tenure was marked by authoritarian policies. However, his career was abruptly cut short in December 1973 when he was assassinated by the Basque separatist group ETA. The attack, which involved a bomb detonated beneath his car, shocked Spain and led to a crackdown on ETA. Blanco's death altered the political landscape, hastening Spain's transition to democracy following Franco's death in 1975, marking the end of an era.
