Angel de "Duque de Rivas" Saavedra
Birth: Mar. 10, 1791
Death: Jun. 22, 1865

Author. Born in Córdoba, Spain, Saavedra is best remembered for his play "Don Álvaro o la Fuerza del Sino", the first success of the Romantic school in the Spanish theater. The play was used as the basis of Francesco Maria Piave's libretto for Verdi's opera "La Forza del Destino." Saavedra also developed a career as a politician. A member of the Liberal party, Saavedra fought against the Absolutist Monarchy of Ferdinand VII. His many works also include "Ensayos Poéticos," "El Moro Expósito" and "Romances Históricos." (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
