ADELARDO LOPEZ DE AYALA Y HERRERA (1828-1879), Spanish writer and politician, was born at Guadalcanal on the 1st of May 1828, and at a very early age began writing for the theatre of his native town.
The Colorados now made General Tajes president, the practical direction of the administration being in the hands of Julio Herrera y Obes.
In March 1890 General Tajes handed over the presidency to Herrera y Obes, a clever but unscrupulous man, who filled every official post with his own friends and ensured the return of his supporters to the chamber.
ANTONIO DE HERRERA Y TORDESILLAS (1549-1625), Spanish historian, was born at Cuellar, in the province of Segovia in Spain.
His father, Roderigo de Tordesillas, and his mother, Agnes de Herrera, were both of good family.
