Federico Romero

Federico Romero Saráchaga (11 November 1886 – 30 June 1976) was a Spanish poet and essayist.He is particularly known as a writer of libretti, primarily for zarzuelas.

Although he was born in Oviedo and lived at times in both Zaragoza and Madrid, he considered himself a son of Spain's La Mancha region, where his family had lived from the early 20th century in the small town of La Solana (Ciudad Real).

The zarzuela La rosa del azafrán, composed by Jacinto Guerrero to a libretto by Romero, is considered emblematic of the region.
