In 1936, in Burgos, Franco was publicly proclaimed as Generalísimo of the National army and Jefe del Estado - Head of State. When Emilio Mola was killed in another air accident a year later, which some believe was an assassination, no military leader was left from those who organized the conspiracy against the Republic between 1933 and 1935.
