Spanish lawyer, diplomatic and politician.

He came from an erudite and renowned family. Son of José Bardají and María Ana de Azara Perea, as well as nephew of José Nicolás de Azara, who let Eusebio de Bardají work with him in the embassy of Spain in Paris. He was married to María Ramona Parada y Parada, who died very young in a traffic accident in San Petesbrugo. They had two children: Fernanda and Ramón.

He studied at the Universidad de Zaragoza, and later, he moved to Italy to finish his studies at the Università di Bologna. He also took advantage of that opportunity and travelled throughout the transalpine country. At the end of his years at the university, he started his diplomatic carrer. His first position was between 1797 and 1798, as secretary of the Spanish Legion in Florencia. After that, he moved to Madrid as official in the First Secretary of State. Once he was there, he passed through as Spanish legations in Paris and Vienna. In 1800, he came back to the Secretary of State and in 1804, he was appointed Knight of the Royal Order of Charles III. He was next to Ferdinand VII in Bayona and once he was back in Spain he collaborated for a while with the government of Joseph-Napoléon Bonaparte. Nevertheless, after the abdication of the King in Madrid, he linked himself to the Junta Central Suprema del Reino and held different important positions, such as Minister of State (1810-1812), interim Minister of War and plenipotentiary Minister of Portugal, Sweden and Russia.

After the restoration of Ferdinand VII's reign, he was appointed ambassador in Turin. When the Constitution of 1812 was introduced again in 1820, he was cautious: he was transferred to the embassy of Paris as the new ambassador and a short time after that he was named Minister of State. Not long after the end of the Trienio Liberal (Liberal Triennium), he distanced himself from the political environment and settled in his property in Huete, where he managed the heritage of his deceased wife. At the beginning of Isabella's II of Spain reign, he restored his political activity and was named dignitary of the reign, being again in charge of the Ministry of State in the government of Espartero. Finally, he was president of the Council of Ministers and senator for Cuenca in the legislation of 1837-1838.
