Historical Review:

Joaquín Baldomero Fernández-Espartero Álvarez de Toro, generally known as Baldomero Espartero, was a Spanish general and politician who was born in Granátula de Calatrava (Ciudad Real) in 1793 and who died in Logroño on January 8, 1879. He was born into a humble family as the son of an artisan builder of carriages. His parents made him enter the seminary of the Dominicans in Almagro, but at the outbreak of the War of Independence, he fled and enlisted as a volunteer in the army. In 1810 he entered the Military Academy of Isla de León, where he reached the rank of second lieutenant. In 1815, already as a lieutenant, he embarked on the expedition that Fernando VII entrusted to General Morillo to defend Spanish rule in its American colonies.
