Re: lost or stolen jewels

Spain never had a proper regalia, because Kings were not crowned. The so called crown jewels were kept at the Royal Palace and stolen by Jose Bonaparte, who took them with him when he left Spain after losing the throne he had usurped.
It seems the royal regalia of Spain may have been hidden in the walls of the royal palace long with the king's collection of clocks prior to the invasion of Spain by Napoleon's troops. Clocks have been found in the palace walls. No word, yet, if the crown jewels were found there.
