ANTHEM OF ANDORRA


The great Charlemagne, my Father,
liberated me from the Saracens,
And from heaven he gave me life
of Meritxell the great Mother.
I was born a Princess, a Maiden
neutral between two nations.
I am the only remaining daughter
of the Carolingian empire
Believing and free for eleven centuries,
believing and free I will be.
The laws of the land be my tutors,
and my defender Princes!
And Princes my defender!
