A biographical sketch of Spanish general of Cuban origin Vicente Jenaro Quesada Arango, characterized by his opposition to the regime established as a result of the 1812 Constitution. An intransigent absolutist in the liberal triennium, he moderated his ideology at the beginning of Maria Christina's regency, defending the Royal Statute and leading the liberal army in the first Carlist War. Despite this, he maintained his rejection against the early liberal model, preventing in his capacity as a captain-general the popular mobilizations of summer 1835 and especially 1836 from triumphing in Madrid. This eventually cost him his life.
