Joaquin Madariaga (1799 1848) was a soldier and Argentine politician. Madariaga was Governor of the Corrientes Province and leader of the provinces resistance against the national government of Juan Manuel de Rosas.
Madariaga was a soldier from a young age in the city of Buenos Aires, and participated in the acts known as the 'Anarchy of the 20s'. He returned in 1824 to Corrientes, where he worked as a lawyer without having qualified as one and became a judge in the provincial capital.
Many years later he was installed in Curuzu Cuatia, where he dedicated himself to rural work. He was deputy in the legislature during the governorship of Genaro Beron de Astrada and after the governor's death he supported the revolution that overthrew the federal governor Romero. Pedro Ferre named Joaquin's brother, Juan Madariaga, as commander of Mercedes and Curuzu Cuatia. He helped Juan Lavalle form the army with which he conducted the campaign of Entre Rios in 1840.
