HistoryEdit

Led by Sigfredo Hillers [es], the FES became the Spanish Falange Independent on 23 February 1977, and celebrated its First National Congress on 27 and 28 October 1979.

After the resignation of Sigfredo Hillers in the 1980s and change most of the members and cadres of the organization left to join FE-JONS, and the organization was almost considered extinct. But, due to the persistence of a few veterans of the FES, the party was able to survive. FEI gained notoriety again in 1999, when, after an internal crisis in FE-JONS, many members joined the party.

In 2000 FEI formed an electoral coalition with the group Falange 2000. In 2004 both Falange 2000 and FEI merged with Falange Española de las JONS (1976)|FE-JONS.
