Juan Crámer or Joaquín de Crame[1] was the acting Governor-General of the Philippines from 23 April 1835 to 9 September 1835.[2]


Crámer was a Catalonian.[3] He served as acting Governor-General after the death of Governor-General Gabriel de Torres on 23 April 1835.[4]

He was eventually replaced by Pedro Antonio Salazar Castillo as acting Governor-General on 9 September 1835.[5]

He is the grandfather of Rafael Crame (1863 – 1927), the first Filipino chief of the Philippine Constabulary, serving from 17 December 1917 to 1 January 1927.[6] The Philippine Constabulary is the predecessor of the present-day Philippine National Police.
