The current Head of Government is Antoni Martí of the Democrats for Andorra (DA). Legislative power is vested in both government and parliament.
The Parliament of Andorra is known as the General Council.
Andorra declared war on Imperial Germany during World War I, but did not actually take part in the fighting.
It remained in an official state of belligerency until 1958 as it was not included in the Treaty of Versailles.
Years later their daughter, Ermessenda, married Roger Bernat II, the French Count of Foix.
They became Roger Bernat II and Ermessenda I, Counts of Foix, Viscounts of Castellbò and Cerdanya, and co-sovereigns of Andorra (shared with the Bishop of Urgell).
The conflict was resolved in 1278 with the mediation of Aragon by the signing of the first paréage which provided that Andorra's sovereignty be shared between the count of Foix (whose title would ultimately transfer to the French head of state) and the Bishop of Urgell, in Catalonia.
Given its relative isolation, Andorra has existed outside the mainstream of European history, with few ties to countries other than France, Spain and Portugal.
In recent times, however, its thriving tourist industry along with developments in transport and communications have removed the country from its isolation.
Andorra retained its medieval institutions and rural culture largely unchanged during this period.
In 1866, a Council General of 24 members, elected by suffrage limited to heads of families, replaced the aristocratic oligarchy that previously ruled the state.
