Ch and Ll are dígrafos, but for the fact that each of them represents only one phoneme there are considered to be letters of the Spanish ABC from 1803.

It is not true that the ch, the ll and ñ were eliminated it of the Spanish alphabet to adopt the international alphabet. What RAE (Spanish Royal Academy) decided in X Congress of the Association of Academies of the Spanish language is that, in the dictionaries, the words that start with ch and with ll they will be ordained inside c and of l, respectively, to expire with international standards.
