The Eurovision Song Contest 1969 was the 14th in the series. Four countries won the contest, the first time ever a tie-break situation had occurred. However, there was no rule at the time to cover such an eventuality, so all four countries were declared joint winners. There was a tie-breaker at the 1991 Contest in Rome, where France and Sweden tied for first, in which there was a tie-breaking rule of having more 10s and 12s, which Sweden won.

France's win was their fourth. France became the first country to win the contest four times. The Netherlands' win was their third. Spain and the United Kingdom each won for the second time. And it was the first time that any country (Spain, in this case) had a winning ESC entry two years in a row.

It was also the year that three of the much later to be Big Five had won in the same year.
