Churchill wrote about Catalonia in his History of Englishspeaking countries, ie: "The Catalans, induced to make war by the Allies, and especially by England, supported with an admirable commitment to the Archduke, who called Charles III, were delivered with very polite diplomatic phrases, to revenge by the winning side in Spain" ("A History of the Englishspeaking Peoples (Vol. III, The Age of Revolution), Sir Winston Churchill).
His ancestor, John Churchill, duke of Marlborough, was the great English and Allied hero during the Succession War, in which Catalonia lost his liberties.
