King Juan Carlos I will be making an official visit to the United States in February. He will meet with President Barack Obama on February 17.
This is the Spanish king's first official visit to the United States in more than five years. He met with President George Bush at the latter's ranch in Crawford, Texas, in 2004.
In February 2009, the King and his wife, Queen Sofia, visited Florida as a part of the 450th anniversary celebrations in Pensacola.
