Anthem Lyrics

El gran Carlemany


El gran Carlemany, mon Pare dels alarbs em deslliurà,

I del cel vida em donà de Meritxell, la gran Mare,

Princesa nasquí i Pubilla entre dues nacions neutral

Sols resto lú nica filla de l'imperi Carlemany.

Creient i lluire onze segles, creient i lliure vull ser.

¡Siguin els furs mos tutors i mos Prínceps defensors!

I mos Princeps defensors!

Anthem Lyrics English

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!
