Ramón Castilla y Marquesado (Spanish pronunciation: [raˈmõŋ kasˈtiʝa]; 31 August 1797 – 30 May 1867) was a Peruvian caudillo who served as President of Peru three times as well as the Interim President of Peru (Revolution Self-proclaimed President) in 1863.
His earliest prominent appearance in Peruvian history began with his participation in a commanding role of the army of the Libertadores that helped Peru become an independent nation.
Later, he led the country when the economy boomed due to the exploitation of guano deposits.Castilla's governments are remembered for having abolished slavery and modernized the state.
He assumed the presidency for the first time after general Domingo Nieto's death for a short period in 1844, then in 1845 until 1851, again from 1855 to 1862 and, finally, during a brief period in 1863.
