ABC is the oldest daily newspaper published in Madrid. Founded in 1903 by Torcuato Luca de Tena y Álvarez-Ossorio, it quickly became the leading Spanish daily. During the Spanish Civil War a leftist Republican group temporarily occupied its editorial offices in Madrid. Under the ensuing dictatorship of Francisco Franco, the original owners of the paper regained control of the newspaper and ABC once again became the most widely read daily until Franco's death in 1975. It is currently the traditional newspaper of the conservatives and belongs to the Vocento publishing group, which also puts out a number of regional papers.
