Alonso de Figueroa y Cordoba


Alonso de Figueroa y Cordova (*1589? Spain - 1652); Spanish soldier who, in the days of the reign of Philip IV of Spain, temporarily carried out the position of Captain General and Royal Governor of Chile, besides president of its Real Audiencia of Chile. His government lasted for 13 months, between April 1649 and May of 1650. He was the grandfather of the Chilean historian Pedro de Cordoba y Figueroa.

This was the situation of the kingdom on May 4, 1650 when the ship brought the new governor, Francisco Antonio de Acuna Cabrera y Bayona to Concepcion, ending the government of Figueroa. Figueroa y Cordoba was later named president of the Audiencia of Santa Fe de Bogota in 1652, but news of that appointment found him already dead.
