Vicente Genaro de Quesada

Vicente Genaro de Quesada (1782 Havana, Cuba – 15 August 1836 Madrid) was a Spanish military figure. He participated in the Battle of Burgos (1808) during the Peninsular War, leading the Royal Guard and Walloon Guard. Forming a rearguard for the shattered Spanish lines, these troops absorbed repeated charges by General Lasalle's French cavalry without yielding an inch of ground.[1]

He later fought in the First Carlist War on the Isabeline (Liberal) side. He lost the Battle of Alsasua in April 1834.
