History:

By the Royal Decree issued on the 24th October 1838, the Queen Mª Cristina wished to create an Advisory Board to take on the business of the Ultramarine Governorate. The reasons behind its creation are specified in the explanatory statement which unfolds its background. There had reportedly been a long-time necessity for an advisory body, whose first embodiment was the Council of the Indies and, after its dissolution, the Royal Council, which was also abolished.

Sir Francisco Dionisio Vives y Planes (Orán, 1755- Madrid, 1840), Count of Cuba, was appointed President of the Board. He was a Spanish military man, Governor and Captain General of Cuba between 1823 and 1832. After his return to Spain in 1832, the King Ferdinand VII conferred him the title of nobility for services rendered as Captain General of the island.

The abolition of the Advisory Board by the Royal Decree issued on the 21st November 1840 co-occurred with its president’s death. The reasons behind its suppression belong to the directives aimed at dissolving these advisory bodies of the Central Administration.
