Battle of cartagena de indias

I can no more prove that I was not in Belgium yesterday than I can prove that I did not kill Kennedy or that the botijos are not exorcist priests. None of those things I can prove and that does not make them true.
That they told Blas de Lezo that he was not a trapeze artist or that he was not a transvestite or that he never confessed. Well then it is clear that Blas de Lezo was a trapeze artist who wore women’s clothes and did not believe in God! It is that this clarismo.
Regarding the Basque or not Basque, it seems to me that at that time the Basque, as we understand it today, did not exist. In fact we are in the first half of the 18th century, remember that Philip V, the first Bourbon reigns, and the natives of the Basque provinces (as it was said at that time and I say it without any political connotation) and Navarre are in the orbit of the monarch due to our participation in the War of Succession of the Bourbon side.
The truth of what preceded from 1700 and occurred in 1741 in Cartagena de Indias, without novels or fantasies, is narrated with rigor in the book «The Battle of Cartagena de Indias». Information at www.labatalladecartagenade

La biografía de blas de lezo

El almirante Blas de Lezo y Olavarrieta (3 de febrero de 1689 – 7 de septiembre de 1741) fue un oficial de la marina española recordado sobre todo por la Batalla de Cartagena de Indias (1741) en la actual Colombia, donde las fuerzas imperiales españolas bajo su mando derrotaron decisivamente a una gran flota de invasión británica al mando del almirante Edward Vernon.
A lo largo de su carrera naval, Lezo sufrió muchas heridas graves; perdió el ojo izquierdo, la mano izquierda, la movilidad completa del brazo derecho y le amputaron la pierna izquierda in situ tras ser alcanzado por el proyectil de un cañón[1]. Llevando en su carne la historia de sus batallas pasadas se ganó el respeto de sus compañeros y soldados[2].
La defensa de Cartagena de Indias por parte de Lezo contra una flota británica mucho más numerosa consolidó su legado como una de las figuras más heroicas de la historia de España. Se le suele reconocer como uno de los mayores estrategas de la historia naval[3][4].
Así, a los 25 años, según las fuentes, de Lezo había perdido el ojo izquierdo, la pierna izquierda por debajo de la rodilla y el uso del brazo derecho[7][8] Las fuentes modernas suelen centrarse en estos rasgos destacados y se refieren a Lezo con apodos como «Patapalo» y «Mediohombre». No hay pruebas contemporáneas de que éstos (u otros) se utilizaran realmente en vida de Lezo.

On May 5, 1725, he had contracted marriage in Lima with the Creole lady Josefa Pacheco de Bustos, native of Locumba (present Tacna), and daughter of the also Creoles José Carlos Pacheco y Benavides, and María Nicolasa de Bustos y Palacios.

[56] The five younger children were born in the Iberian Peninsula and, of these, the two younger sisters were born in El Puerto de Santa María.[56][68] The five younger children were born in the Iberian Peninsula.
Rejected at La Guaira on 22 October 1739,[99] which he had intended to seize without encountering resistance, Vernon conquered the square of Portobelo (Panama) in November,[99] and challenged Lezo by letter in these terms:

Blas de lezo, the spanish hero who humiliated england

In a few days, three events are mixed that lead to today’s post. First, the ridiculous back and forth polemic about Vox, Blas de Lezo and the recent Goya awards. When politicians of that party ask filmmakers to make De Lezo movies and people in the film world send them to hell (to some extent, understandably). The nonsense is considerable: first, to think that making a film about a character or historical fact means that it will have the vision and tone you want; second, that the film people will buy that point of view with their responses.
Álber Vázquez is the author of Mediohombre: Blas de Lezo y la batalla que Inglaterra ocultó al mundo (Esfera de los Libros, 2017), a fast-paced novel that narrates the siege of Cartagena de Indias in 1741 and has just been republished.    Read the rest of the entry «
