Antonio Goicoechea

Antonio Goicoechea (21 January 1876[1] in Barcelona – 11 February 1953 in Madrid)[2] was an Alfonsine monarchist in Spain during the period of the Second Spanish Republic and the Spanish Civil War.[3] He briefly served as Minister of the Interior from 15 April 1919 to 20 July 1919[4] in a Maura cabinet.[5] He led the Renovación Española political party.[6] Prior to the Civil War, Goicoechea in 1934 had negotiated alongside with Carlist monarchists Antonio Lizarza Iribarren and Rafael de Olazábal y Eulate with Italian dictator Benito Mussolini on a military agreement that would guarantee Italian support of their movements should a civil war erupt in Spain.[7] However, when the Civil War did erupt in 1936, it had not been initiated by Goicoechea or other members of the agreement, but rather a group of army officers, thus Goicoechea's agreement with Mussolini did not go forward.[8] After Falange Española Tradicionalista y de las Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional Sindicalista emerged in 1937, Goicoechea dissolved Renovación Española and worked as Governor of the Bank of Spain (from 1938 to 1950)[9] and Procurador en Cortes (representative of the Francoist legislature).
