According to historians, Charles II knighted his faithful backers during the Civil War, upon his restoration as a reward for their loyalty. Though knighted, they were not compensated for the lost titles and possessions. The story goes that Sir Winston Churchill (1620-1688) chose the motto "Fiel pero Desdichado" (Faithful though Unblessed), to show his disappointment (Churchill had supported both Charles I and Charles II).

Still doesn't explain the Spanish.

Best I could find was that it probably sounded better than the Latin.
