Wrong place of death[edit]

Batista died in Guadalmina a place in the city of Marbella in Spain. In the article it says 'Guadalamina' instead of 'Guadalmina' which is the correct way to write it. I'm 100% sure because I live in Guadalmina in the city of Marbella and it is well known that the correct way of writing it is 'Guadalmina' and not 'Guadalamina'.

Carlos Manuel de Céspedes[edit]

FYI, the link to Carlos Manuel de Céspedes points to an article about the father of the person that this article refers to.

Unexplained acronyms[edit]

Admittedly this is a minor point but there are two acronyms - "FEU" and "DR" - in the "Batista, Fidel Castro, and the Cuban Revolution" section that haven't been introduced previously - see my flags thereat. (talk) 07:34, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

what year for divorce & 2nd marriage?[edit]

I find:

"He divorced his wife, Elisa, and married Marta Fernández Batista in 1945."

But in the information box further up, I see 1946, not 1945. Please fix the discrepancy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:12, 10 March 2014 (UTC)


The usage and primary topic of "Batista" is under discussion at talk:Dave Batista -- (talk) 07:36, 25 November 2014 (UTC)


A 1959 newspaper article states that a son named Fulgencio Ruben Batista is 25 years old at that time, making him born in 1934. He was living in New Orleans and flew with his wife and 1 year old child to Jacksonville and eventually with the rest of clan to Daytona Beach, Florida. That would make him 81 years old today if he is still alive. Ruben stated in the newspaper article that his father has a lot of friends in the USA. The house is described as a "plush villa" and arriving there January 1, 1959 include 18 influential Cubans, mother of his personal secretary in a wheelchair, and his other children. Several newspaper articles mention that five police officers are guarding his house around the clock. These people were molested at airports when transferring on flights to get to Daytona Beach, Florida, because it was known who they were connected with.
