Bolivar Libertador de América Venezolano, born July 24, 1783, who dedicated his life to breaking the chains of oppression of the Spanish crown in America.
White Creole born in an aristocratic home, received since childhood the dedication in their care of the black Matea, a slave of his family, has the 9 years suffered the physical loss of their parents.
Among his tutors were Andrés Bello and Simón Rodríguez, already in his youth at age 15, he travels to Spain to continue his studies. He met María Teresa Rodríguez del Toro and Alayza, whom he married at the age of 19, in Spain. Shortly after their marriage was consummated, they arrived in Caracas, María Teresa fell ill with yellow fever and died.
