Fermín Jáudenes Politician

Fermín Jáudenes y Álvarez was briefly a Spanish Governor-General of the Philippines, from July 24 to August 13, 1898, in the middle of the Philippine Revolution. During his term, two important events occurred – the mock Battle of Manila and the surrender of the Spanish, ending over 330 years of rule. Jaudenes was in Manila when the Spanish Cortez learned of Governor-General Basilio Augustín’s attempt to negotiate surrender to Aguinaldo, which precipitated the latter's removal on July 24, 1898, and the appointment of Jáudenes as Governor-General the same day. Most references indicate that Jaudenes was Acting Governor-General, and remained as such throughout his short term of 21 days.
