Eulogio Despujol y Dusay[1] (Barcelona, March 11, 1834 - Riba-roja de Túria, October 18, 1907) served as a Spanish Governor-General of the Philippines from 1891 to 1893. A native of Catalunya,[2] at first, he ruled in the Philippines as a conservative but later became a reactionary. It was during his term when José Rizal, leader of the Philippine propaganda movement, was sent to Dapitan island, in Mindanao. 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]
