Spanish Statesman. He took an active role in government during the turbulent years of revolution in Spain. In 1868 he led, with Juan Prim, the revolution that resulted in Queen Isabel II deposition. He served as premier, 1871-72, under King Amadeus and as cabinet minister under the first Spanish republic but retired after the restoration, in 1875, of Alfonso XII. In 1880 the Liberal party was founded under his leadership, and Sagasta alternated in power with Antonio Cánovas del Castillo, the conservative leader; he was Premier five times (1881 to 1883, 1885 to 1890, 1892 to 1895, 1897 to 1899, and 1901 to 1902).
