Juan Facundo Quiroga
Birth: 1790, Argentina
Death: Feb. 16, 1835, Argentina

Argentine "caudillo." One of the most brutal of the early gaucho chieftains. After a turbulent youth, Quiroga rose rapidly to become by 1822 virtual overlord of the Andean Provinces of Argentina. In 1834, Quiroga came to Buenos Aires, which was then ruled by Juan Manuel de Rosas. Quiroga was assassinated while returning from a mission to the northern provinces and it was believed that Rosas had instigated the killing. A famous study of Quiroga and his era is Domingo Faustino Sarmiento´s "Facundo". (bio by: 380W)
