Carlos María de la Torre y Nava Cerrada is considered the most beloved of the Spanish Governors-General ever assigned in the Philippines (1869–1871). He was the assigned Governor-General after the Spanish Revolution of 1869.[1][2]

Governor General of the Philippines

He was sent from Spain after the ouster of Isabel II. He was considered a liberal Spaniard who practiced the liberal and democratic principles for imposing liberal laws. He was loudly denounced by his political enemies because of his radical reforms.[3] He established the Guardia Civil and gave amnesty to rebels.[4] His supporters had done a Liberal Parade in front of the Malacañang Palace.[5] He was ousted when the monarchy in Spain was re-established by the Spanish Cortes. He was succeeded by Governor-General Rafael de Izquierdo.

He was also very close to the ilustrados, a group of Filipinos who understood the situation of the Philippines under Spanish rule.
