Spanish judge, politician and writer. Son of Pedro Romero Gómez and Josefa Alpuente Gil, residents of the Albarracín region (Teruel).

He studied Philosophy at the University of Alcalá, Civil Law at the University of Valencia and Canons at the University of Zaragoza. Lawyer of the Royal Councils, he was elected deputy to attend the General Meetings of the Mesta. Manuel de Roda, Minister of King Charles III, appointed him prosecutor for his knowledge of economic issues. He took office in the Criminal Prosecutor's Office of the Valencia Court in 1794. He went on to work as a judge in the Chancellery of Granada, in 1802 and later, he was appointed governor of the first Crime Chamber also in Granada (1805-1808). He married Francisca-Xaviera Barmavo de Espinosa.

He actively participated in different committees during the Peninsular War. During the absolutist six-year-term (1814-1820) he was hidden and confined in Murcia, where he became a mason. During the Trienio Liberal (Liberal Triennium) he was released and was proclaimed interim political head of Murcia. Later, he was elected deputy for Aragon in the Cortes in 1820, and became a national figure as a pro-man of the exalted minority throughout the constitutional period.

He went into exile with the re-establishment of the absolutist regime of Ferdinand VII, and scraped by in England. He returned to Spain thanks to the political amnesty of 1834, and obtained a retirement pension. He died in January 1835 in Madrid at the age of 72.
