Blas de Lezo died not long after the Battle of Cartagena de Indias, in which he repelled one of the largest amphibious invasions in history with a small force.
But I understand, of course. British people are very sensitive when it comes to remembering national humiliations. ;-)
Sorry, there was no need for me to be that salty.

He is famous in his own right, mind you. Not many 18th Century military commanders regularly get articles written about them today in the popular press. The main issue was that you all focused on the 17th Century.
Which articles? In which publications?

BTW which far right group did you mean to refer to?

I mean all of those articles are from 2014, and about an argument involving a commemorative plaque, but ok.

Not all of them. There are BBC articles from 2000, 2011 and 2009, and an IBTimes UK article from 2015. And I didn't include articles from Travel sections or publications dedicated to history.
