Eulogio Despujol y Dusay[1] (Catalan: Eulogi Despujol i Dusay), 1st Count of Caspe (11 March 1834 – 18 October 1907) served as the Spanish Governor-General of the Philippines between 1891 and 1893. A native of Catalonia,[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]
