Spain Premier. Became a member of parliament aged twenty-seven and after holding several cabinet posts, he became Premier in 1910. He was a democratic radical who hoped to reform the Liberal party. He planned to curb the power of religious orders and break up large estates. However, he introduced firm measures against labour unrest, which distanced many of his left-wing supporters. His career was cut short when an anarchist assassinated him.
