The name of the autonomous governments of Catalonia and Valencia is generalitat. A great deal of power has now been transferred to them from central government. The medieval term generalitat was revived in 1932, when Catalonia voted for its own devolved government.

The Valencian Generalitat is keen to preserve the traditions of the region from Catalan influence.
