In 1868, Echegaray was named Minister of Education and of Finance after the triumph of the popular movement against the monarchy. He then began his literary career, becoming a leading dramatist of the second half of the nineteenth century. His most acclaimed works include "El Gran Galeoto," "La Hija Natural," "El Libro Talonario," "En El Puño de la Espada" and "El Hijo de Don Juan." He was elected to the Royal Spanish Academy in 1894.
