Throughout Spain's history and leaders the Spaniards have been critical of their leaders. Selecting a leader was difficult and being completely satisfied with their leader was uncommon because the Spaniards were not easy to please. Their were certain qualities a leader had to have in order to be a "good" and "strong" leader. They received good social standing by virtue of achievement, public life and/or cultural activity. Another one of the main reasons and ways a leader became or was a "good" leader was their wealth. They had to have a alot of wealth which includes new wealth and wealth they received from family connections. Family and/or lineage is important, it was important to be from another wealthy and powerful lineage. Another important quality for a leader is they had to be successful, being successful means they are wealthy, hard working and a good leader that will be helpful and do good for the future of Spain. Another very important quality of a good leader was the leader had to be educated. Being educated is very important because then the leaders can use their eduction to make good decisions and handle Spain well with money and the countries wealth. Being educated means that the leader is wealthy and successful. Being Educated also makes it much more difficult for the leader and therefore Spain to be over run because it makes other countries fear Spain. Education was and is important to Spain so therefore it is important for the leader to be educated to be a good role model. All these qualities were hard to have in leader but they were found in Queen Isabella and King Freudian. These two leaders had these qualities and were the founding fathers.
