Biographical details

The daughter of the Marques de San Jorge, from Bogotá. On 20 June 1782, after the Comuneros rebellion, she married Juan Esteban Ricaurte. There was some objection to the marriage by her family, so one day she left for the Cathedral saying she was going to mass. There she met Ricaurte and they asked the priest to marry them. He refused (but the marriage must have taken place) and the scandalised Marqués had Ricaurte arrested and ordered Lozano to be kept under surveillance in the house of María Prieto Dávila. On 22 June 1782 he disinherited his daughter. By the following year, however, his anger had cooled and Lozano and Ricaurte were given an expensively furnished house in Honda, jewellery and up to 2,000 pesos. In 1786 they moved to Villa de Leiva, as Ricaurte had the post of Administrador de Principal de la real renta de aguardiente de caña. It was a tough move into a harsh climate and away from her family and friends. Among their children were Ignacio (b.1784), Antonio (born in Villa de Leiva around 1786) and Manuel Ricaurte y Lozano (b.1791) who became leading figures in the independence struggle. (Monsalve, 10-12)

She was part of the González Manrique, Alvarez, Ricaurte, París, Pardo, Nariño clan. (Monsalve, 139)
