6th Conde de los Andes

Francisco Moreno Zuleta, Conde de los Andes, Marqués de Mortara, Knight of the Real Maestranza de Sevilla, was born in Jerez de la Frontera in 1881.

He held a Doctorate in Law and a degree in philosophy. He was probably the most important person in Jerez in the first half of the 20th century. He was an important landowner and a good friend of the President of the government, Don. Antonio Maura, who later became his brother in law as they both married two Cuban sisters. His wife, Carmen Herrera, was the daughter of Ramon Herrera, Conde de la Mortera.

He made a grand entrance in politics, within the Conservative Party, paying with his own money the debts of the bankrupt Bank of Jerez. He was a deputy from 1906-1921, for the constituency of Cádiz. He was Deputy Minister of Presidency in 1919 and Vice President of the Spanish Parliament in 1921. That year he took a seat in the Senate.

In 1924, King Alfonso XIII granted him the title of Grandee of Spain. 

In 1927, during the dictatorship of General Primo de Rivera, he was once again elected deputy as "representative of the State". In 1928, he was appointed Minister of Economy and in 1930, Minister of Finance.

With the arrival of the Republican government he accompanied King Alfonso XIII to exile. He was first appointed second Head of Palace, and then Head of Palace, until the King’s death in Rome. It is the equivalent to the current Head of the House of the King. The King appointed him executor and practitioner of his will.

During the government of General Franco, he was the representative of Don Juan. He maintained politically active in support of Don Juan III and the monarchy.

He died in 1963.
