The crest was subjected to changes in 1908 and it was encircled. In 1920, it was granted royal patronage. It changed its title to Real Madrid simply meaning ‘royal’ and King Alfonso’s crown was embedded on the crest.

Royal symbols were later removed from the crest following the fall of monarchy. More changes were made in 2001 in order to modernize it with the 21st century.
