Comandante General Gregorio Aráoz de Lamadrid (or "de La Madrid"; 1795 in San Miguel de Tucumán – 1857 in Buenos Aires) was an Argentine military officer and, briefly, governor of several provinces like Córdoba, Mendoza and his native province of Tucumán.
Lamadrid fought beside General Belgrano and General San Martín during the Argentine War of Independence, as a prominent cavalry officer of the Army of the North, where he won a number of famous small actions such as Tambo Nuevo in 1813 and Culpina in 1816. As a general commanding Unitarian forces in the civil wars which followed, Lamadrid fought alongside General José María Paz in the battles of La Tablada, San Roque, and Oncativo.
Lamadrid's body is buried in the Cathedral of San Miguel de Tucumán.
