Fraga's career as one of the key political figures in Spain straddles both General Francisco Franco's dictatorial regime and the subsequent transition to democracy. He served as the President of the Xunta of Galicia from 1990 to 2005. Currently a Senator, he is one of the few Honoris Causa Doctors of the Faculty of Law of the University of Lisbon.
