History:

Gabino Gaínza y Fernández de Medrano (Vizcaya, País Vasco, October 20, 1753 or 1760 - Mexico, 1829). He was a Spanish soldier destined in overseas. He took part in the process of independence of the former American colonies. He was the son of José Javier Gainza and Eulalia Fernández de Medrano. He was appointed Knight of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, Rhodes and Malta. In 1820, he occupied the position of Deputy Inspector General of the Army of Guatemala when the General Urrutia, President of the Audience of Guatemala, Governor and Captain General, delegated his positions on him. In 1821, he joined the Guatemalan independence, who named him Head of the new State. Once Mexico was annexed to Guatemala, Gabino Gaínza continued governing as Governor General on behalf of Mexico territory, position from which was dismissed in 1822.
