Galo Leoz Ortín (22 April 1879 – 23 January 1990) was a Spanish supercentenarian and Spain's oldest recognized living person when he died aged 110 years 276 days. He became Spain's oldest recognized male ever when he surpassed Aurelio Diaz. Leoz's record was surpassed in 1993 by Josep Armengol Jover (23 July 1881 – 20 January 1994), who lived to the age of 112 years 181 days. Galo Leoz was a noted ophthalmologist.[31]

Manuela Fernández-Fojaco[edit]

Manuela Fernández Fojaco (18 June 1895 – 6 January 2009) was the fifth-oldest living person, the oldest person in Europe and the oldest living person in Spain at the time of her death, at the age of 113 years, 202 days.

Manuela Fernández Fojaco was born in Llamas, in the municipality of Aller, Asturias. On 2 January 2009, she became the oldest living European after the death of 115-year-old Portuguese woman Maria de Jesus. Her reign lasted for 4 days until her death on 6 January 2009. After her death, 112-year-old Lucia Lauria Vigna from Italy became Europe's oldest person (although Eugénie Blanchard was from Saint Barthélemy, which is part of the European Union).[32][33]

Ana María Vela Rubio[edit]

Ana María Vela Rubio (29 October 1901 – 15 December 2017), aged 116 years and 47 days, was a Spanish supercentenarian who became the oldest verified Spaniard ever on 6 June 2016, when she surpassed the record of María Antonia Castro who died in 1996, aged 114 years, 220 days[34] and was also the oldest Spanish-born person from 4 April 2017 when she surpassed the record of Emiliano Mercado del Toro. At the time of her death she was the third-oldest living person in the world, behind Nabi Tajima and Chiyo Miyako.[1] She became the oldest living European upon the death of former world's oldest person Emma Morano on 15 April 2017.[35] She remains the third oldest person ever from Europe behind Jeanne Calment and Emma Morano.

Vela Rubio was born in Puente Genil, Andalucia. She worked as a dressmaker in her youth. She never married her partner as her parents objected to him, but the two had several children. Her daughter, also named Ana, lived with her.[34]

Francisco Núñez Olivera[edit]

Francisco Núñez Olivera (13 December 1904 – 29 January 2018),[36][37] aged 113 years and 47 days, was the oldest living man after the death of Polish-born Israeli Yisrael Kristal on August 11, 2017. He was born in Extremadura and joined the army at the age of 19 to fight in the Rif War.[36][38] He had his kidney removed when he was 90 and a cataract operation aged 98,[38] and was a veteran of the Spanish Civil War. He was nicknamed "Marchena" after his resemblance to native flamenco singer-songwriter/actor Pepe Marchena.[36][39]
