Viceroy in Mexico

Viceroy in Mexico

Miguel de la Grúa Talamanca de Carini y Branciforte. This Sicilian nobleman was viceroy of Nueva España from 1794 to 1798. Ruling from California to Costa Rica he is considered to have been one of the most corrupted viceroys of the Spanish colonial empire. A corrupted Sicilian administrator…not the only one unfortunately!
