The first parliament in Andorra was established in 1419, as the Consell de la Terra. Councillors were elected by the population, and the council appointed syndics to manage the administration of the principality. It remained in force for several hundred years, slowly becoming the fiefdom of a few major families; this caused popular discontent by the nineteenth century, and major reforms were instituted in 1866.
The reforms were masterminded by Guillem de Areny i de Plandolit, and had several effects:
- The Consell de la Terra was abolished, and replaced by the Consell General de las Valls, with a syndic and vice-syndic.
- The franchise was extended to all heads of families.
- Regular elections were laid down; in this case, twelve of the twenty-four (as there then were) councillors were to be elected every two years.
