Eulogio Despujol y Dusay[1] (March 11, 1834 - October 18, 1907) served as the Spanish Governor-General of the Philippines between 1891 and 1893. A native of Catalunya,[2] at first, he ruled in the Philippines as a Conservative but later became a Liberal. It was during his term when José Rizal, leader of the Philippine propaganda movement, was sent to Dapitan in Mindanao.[3] He would again meet with Rizal, who was on his way to Cuba to work as a military medic before being intercepted in Barcelona, before sending him back to the Philippines.[2]
