Simón Bolívar, The Liberator or Spanish El Libertador born July 24, 1783, Caracas, Venezuela, New Granada [now in Venezuela]—died December 17, 1830, near Santa Marta, Columbia), Venezuelan soldier and statesman who led the revolutions against Spanish rule in the Vice royalty of new Granada. He was president of Gran Columbia and dictator of Peru. Bolívar is regarded by many as the greatest genius the Latin American world has produced. He was a man of international interest and he was renowned in his own day, and his reputation has steadily increased since his death. There are few figures in European history and none in the history of the United States who display the rare combination of strength and weakness, character and temperament, prophetic vision and poetic power that distinguish Simón Bolívar. As a consequence, his life and his work have grown to mythical dimensions among the people of his continent.
