She was the 7th Condesa de la Vega del Ren. Her aristocratic background and Spanish ancestry did not prevent her from being a staunch supporter of independence. An educated women, she read the Rights of Man and served both San MartĂ­n and BolĂ­var in the independence cause. (GarcĂ­a y GarcĂ­a, 278-279)
