Jose Tadeo Mancheno
Jose Tadeo Mancheno y Laso de la Vega (c. 1784 1855) was a Chilean political figure.
Mancheno was born in Santiago, the son of Jose Antonio Mancheno and of Angelina Laso de la Vega. He was trained as a lawyer at the Universidad de San Felipe, where he graduated on October 29, 1810. He married Antonia Elizalde, and together they had eight children.
During the Chilean War of Independence, he alternatively supported both sides. In the Patria Vieja period, he was Secretary of Foreign Affairs between October 9, 1813 until March 9, 1814, nominated by the junta headed by Jose Miguel Infante. After the Spanish Reconquista, he served as juridical assessor and secretary of the Cabildo (City hall) of Santiago, a position he retained after the Battle of Chacabuco and the collapse of the Colonial government.
