Abarca, Don Joaquin

bishop of Leon, was born in 1780 in Aragon, Spain. He was one of the chief adherents of the faction of Don Carlos in Spain. In 1836 he was arrested near Bordeaux by the French government and banished to Frankfort, whence he went tore join the Pretender in the Basque provinces, with a quantity of silver which the Tory party had advanced to him. He, however, fell into disgrace, and died in 1844 in a convent of Carmelite friars at Lanzo, near Turin. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Gen., s.v.
