Spanish statesman-
Spanish politician and general. In 1766 he was called on by Charles II to restore order in Madrid, and, having done so, became chief minister in Spain. He fell from power 1792, due largely to his attitude of sympathy with the French Revolution.

He was born at Sietamo in Aragn. In 1740 he entered the army and took part in the War of the Austrian Succession. He copied Frederick the Great in his methods of military discipline.
