Biographical details

From Sucre, she married Manuel Ramón Abecia, a Spaniard who supported independence and took part in the defeats of Guaqui, Villcapujio, Ayoma and Viloma. When the royalists took Sucre, she was exiled "al lugar infernal de Seripona" due to her exalted patriotism and the action of her husband. The climate was so bad in Seripona that many of the slaves with them died. She became seriously ill and was taken back to Sucre where she died on the way. Padilla and Azurduy's troops received her body and gave her full military honours at her funeral. She left two children who were destitute, as all the family's wealth had been taken. (Urquidi, 156-157)
