Can't insert special characters (for example í,ñ or °) in mysql command line

The Problem:
On the keyboard, when I press the "ñ" key, or intend to insert "í","ó","ü" or "°", these doesn't apper on the command line. Also, if i try to copy some of those characters, i have the same problem. For example I copy "María", but when i try to paste in the comand line, it appears "Mara".

Aditional Information:
I tried these under the following version

mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.6.25, for debian-linux-gnu (i686) using EditLine wrapper

When I connet to the database i use the following sintax:

mysql -u root -h localhost -p

Also, when i execute this:

SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'char%'; SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'collation%';

I got the following output:

+--------------------------+----------------------------+
| Variable_name | Value |
+--------------------------+----------------------------+
| character_set_client | utf8 |
| character_set_connection | utf8 |
| character_set_database | latin1 |
| character_set_filesystem | binary |
| character_set_results | utf8 |
| character_set_server | latin1 |
| character_set_system | utf8 |
| character_sets_dir | /usr/share/mysql/charsets/ |
+--------------------------+----------------------------+
8 rows in set (0,05 sec)

+----------------------+-------------------+
| Variable_name | Value |
+----------------------+-------------------+
| collation_connection | utf8_general_ci |
| collation_database | latin1_swedish_ci |
| collation_server | latin1_swedish_ci |
+----------------------+-------------------+
3 rows in set (0,00 sec)


Hope someone could help me. Thanks!
