Rafael Gomez Ortega
Birth: Jul. 16, 1882
Death: May 25, 1960

Professional Bullfighter. He was the brother of the Bullfighter Joselito. He is remembered for creating many of the moves with the cape, which are still in use today. In 1915 he amazed the crowed at the bullring in Seville by fighting the bull while sitting on a chair. He was married to Pastora Imperio, a popular flamenco singer and dancer, but their marriage only lasted for 2 months. He spent all his fortune, and in the last years of his life the Bullfighter Juan Belmonte supported him.  (bio by: Bunny Boiler)
