Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar is my role model for many reasons. He was born a minor noble in the Kingdom of Castile in the mid-1000s and rose to be the very influential ruler of Valencia.He is a national hero of Spain and helped greatly in the unification of Spain. He treated Muslims and Catholics equally, while still helping greatly in the Reconquista. And though it was likely that he wouldn't have been remembered by history whatsoever, he made a lasting impact in history and helped a war-torn country unify under his king, who he remained loyal to despite being banished from Castile several times, only to be called back when he was needed. Rodrigo Diaz was named the Champion of Castile and chosen to lead the Kingdom's armies to war against the King's brother, King Sancho of Leon, who had declared war on him to take his brother's lands by force.
The exotification of Dolores del Rio is evident in an article published by a Photoplay issue in 1934, as she is described as possessing “golden skin, smooth as mellowed ivory and her dark, flashing eyes bespoke the lue of those maidenly ‘senoritas’ who peep at life from behind cloistered shutters… When the young man comes to call on a senorita in Mexico… he brings his guitar” (38). Through the exotification of Dolores del Rio, Hollywood found great success in the United States and in Latin America, one of the most profitable film markets in the cinematic industry. As a white-passing Latinx woman, del Rio was “more easily able to move in and out of ethnic roles” (33). Because Dolores del Rio was a Latinx woman that held “upper-class roles” and a Eurocentric standard of beauty while nonetheless, identifying with her Mexican heritage, she not only appealed to the white American public, but to Latin American audiences as well (Hershfield

Bernal Diaz del Castillo Bernal Diaz was born in 1492 or 1498 to Maria Diaz Rejón and Francisco Diaz del Castillo, a regidor (council member) of the town of Medina del Campo, in Castilla y León. The family was distinguished but not wealthy. In 1514, Bernal went to seek his fortune in America with Pedrarias Dávila (Pedro Árias de Ávila), Bishop Fonseca's newly appointed governor of Castilla del Oro. A cruel and unscrupulous schemer, Pedrarias excelled at extorting riches by torturing native rulers, looting gems and gold from their graves, and eliminating potential rivals. (Pedrarias had his prospective son-in-law Balboa and four companions beheaded on trumped-up charges in 1519.)
Kicking it off with Miguel, he was the top prospect in the Dominican that year. Every team wanted him, and they were willing to offer him millions in bonuses for his talent. However, there were some teams that wanted him just as bad as the others but didn’t have the money to win the bidding war. In this case, that team was the Pittsburgh Pirates. The talent scout for the Pirates in the Dominican, Rene Gayo, went to no end to try to ensure that Miguel would sign with them.
Reynaldo Yes, very well, sir. Polonius You should say: “I sort of know him”, “Isn’t he the one who always”. Make up whatever you want, like he’s your average young guy, and the kind of trouble they get to. Reynaldo Like gambling perhaps, sir? Polonius That’s right!
She was born in 1821 into a poor family in the south of Brazil. Like most girls from low resources, she didn’t received a formal education, however, she was a good equestrian. At the age of 14 she was forced to marry Manoel Duarte di Aguiar, a shoemaker, who was called into service for the Brazilian army. There’s not a real story on how they broke up or who abandon who, but Giuseppe Garibaldi swoop into the picture quickly. He was an Italian general, politician and nationalist who played a large role in the history of Italy.
Roberto Clemente Baseball Player All-star, hall of famer, and major league baseball player are three attributes that describe Roberto Clemente. Many people know the Roberto Clemente was a baseball player, but he was so much more. As a well known baseball player, Roberto Clemente inspired Americans that they shouldn’t judge baseball players by the color of their skin. He left a lasting legacy as one of the best right fielders in major league baseball. The origin of Roberto’s early life of baseball started when he watched a baseball game for the very first time.
He was never the right man for Chelsea’s future and he felt desperately out of his depth the following season as his team couldn’t even get past the Group Stages of the Champions League. Chelsea would go on to have no qualms about showing him the door. Rafa Benitez was to waltz by with fans slating him for his Liverpool connect, but the ‘Interim One’ reveled in his temporary appointment making something out of a lost season of sorts. Yet, his tenure is of no importance in this context. With Jose, you could see why a team that dominated the Premier League last season ended up flirting with relegation during this one.
