It was written by Joan Benlloch i Vivó and composed by Enric Marfany Bons. It was adopted as the national anthem in 1921.
The great Charlemagne, my father,
He freed me from the Arabs,
And life from heaven gave me,
of Meritxell, the great Mother,
Princess I was born and heir,
between two nations, neutral

Let the powers be my guardians
and my Princes defenders!
And my Princes defenders!
