He was the son of Benito Gil de Taboada y León, 6th Count of Taboada, and María Gil y Tejeiro, a learned family. He graduated from Civil and Canon Law by the University of Santiago de Compostela.

When Ferdinand VII went to Bayona in April 1808, and being then the one in charge of the Supreme Court of the Government, he became part of a Junta Alternativa that was created by his uncle, the bailiff Francisco Gil de Taboada, Minister of Navy, and the oldest chair of the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court failed, and he was taken to France, where he was locked up during five years because he denied helping the authorities of Bonaparte. With Riego's uprising success, he was one of the members of the Junta Provisional, and he later became the State's adviser. In 1823, he had to exiled to Paris because of the re-enactment of the absolutist government. He passed away there in 1826.
