This research is focused on two fiction representations of the coup d’état in 1981, February 23rd in Spain. Specifically two series broadcasted in February 2009, namely: February 23rd: King’s hardest day and February 23rd: the history of a betrayal. In this way, we assume not only the proposal that fiction is a useful instrument to rebuild historical memory, but also the concern that it is able to renew the perception of some social institutions.
