Biography

Maldonado was the son of Joaquín Álvarez-Maldonado y Abadelancena and María de los Dolores Lóriga y de la Reguera.[3] He entered the Royal College of Artillery in 1923.[4] He participated in campaigns during First Carlist War (1833 – 1840), supporting the Liberal cause.[5] His participation in battles such as in Luchana, Peñacerrada, and Medianas and Bortedas earned him promotions and numerous decorations such as the Order of San Fernando and the Order of Isabella the Catholic.[6] After the war, he held numerous military positions.[7]

He was then assigned in the Philippines in 1867, where he assumed the position of acting Governor-General on 7 June 1869 following the departure of José de la Gándara.[8] He assumed the position until on 23 June 1869 with the appointment of Carlos María de la Torre as the new governor-general.[9]

He returned to Spain in the same year, after which he occupied some military positions.[10] He eventually died on 2 March 1888.[11]
