Gómez Pérez Dasmariñas

Gómez Pérez Dasmariñas y Ribadeneira was a Spanish politician, military officer and colonial official. He was the seventh governor-general of the Philippines from May or June 1, 1590 to October 25, 1593; the city of Dasmariñas, located 24 km south of Manila, was named after him. Dasmariñas was a member of the Order of Santiago. Pérez Dasmariñas was born in Viveiro, Spain, he was named governor of León on January 30, 1579. There he built various fountains and streets, his work there was viewed favorably, he was promoted to corregidor of Murcia and Cartagena, Spain on September 27, 1584. He held these positions until January 1, 1587. In 1589 he was named governor and captain general of the Philippines by King Philip II. At the same time, Philip increased the salary of the position to 10,000 Castilian ducados per year and made Pérez Dasmariñas a knight of the Order of Santiago, his orders included the suppression of the Audiencia of Manila, something, requested by the Spanish settlers in the Philippines.

He had instructions to establish a garrison of 400 soldiers, paid at His Majesty's expense, for the defense of the colony. Pérez Dasmariñas sailed for New Spain on December 8, 1589, on the same ships as Luis de Velasco, the newly appointed viceroy of New Spain. Continuing his journey, Pérez Dasmariñas left from Acapulco on March 1, 1590 and arrived in Manila in May, or, according to his own account, on June 1. Upon taking office, he suppressed the Audiencia and established the garrison, he worked diligently to build a stone defensive wall around the city of Manila, so diligently that this project was nearly completed by the time of the governor's death in 1593. He rebuilt Fort Santiago, he had the cathedral of Manila constructed in stone, encouraged private citizens to build their dwellings in stone. During his term of office he increased trade with improved communication with Spain, he suppressed an uprising in Zambales. He sent his son Luis Pérez Dasmariñas at the head of a military expedition to Cagayan, across parts of the island of Luzon never before seen by Spaniards.

He built an artillery foundry in Manila, but because of a lack of skilled founders, this project was not successful. In the first year of his administration, he sent the president and the oidores of the suppressed Audiencia to Spain; however Licenciado Pedro de Rojas, the senior oidor, remained in Manila by order of the king as lieutenant-assessor in matters of justice, until some years he was appointed alcalde in Mexico City. During his administration, a letter was received from Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the ruler of Japan at that time, demanding submission and tribute and threatening to come with a fleet and troops to lay waste the country; the correspondence dragged out for several years, until Hideyoshi died. As a continuing confirmation of Pre-hispanic Lucoes' service as mercenaries in Southeast Asia, in 1593 the king of Cambodia sent an embassy to the governor, namely the Portuguese Diego Belloso. Belloso brought a present of two offers of friendship and trade, he implored aid against Siam, threatening the kingdom.

Pérez Dasmariñas sent the king a present of a horse and some emeralds and other objects, but postponed a reply to the request for aid. This was the origin of the Spanish involvement and expeditions to the kingdoms of Siam and Cambodia. On May 12, 1591, Esteban Rodríguez de Figueroa, a wealthy Spaniard of Manila, made an agreement with the governor to conquer Muslim Mindanao; this was to be done at Rodríguez's own expense, in exchange for which he would name the governor of the conquered territory for two lifetimes. Pérez Dasmariñas quarreled with Bishop Salazar, who departed for Spain in 1592. In 1593, Gómez Pérez Dasmariñas organized an expedition from Manila to capture the fort at Terrenate, in the Moluccas. Pérez Dasmariñas had planned this expedition for some time, but in secret, did not reveal his intention until most of the preparations had been made, he intended to lead the expedition personally. Before he set sail, he sent his son, Luis Pérez Dasmariñas, on ahead with part of the fleet to the province of Pintado.

The governor left the military affairs of Manila and the rest of the Philippines in charge of Diego Ronquillo, the civil affairs in charge of Pedro de Rojas. After his son left, he remained in Manila, making final preparations and arming a galley of 28 benches, in which he was to sail; this galley he manned with pay. According to Antonio de Morga, in order to win the good will of the rowers, he would not allow them to be chained, winked at their carrying certain weapons. About forty Spaniards embarked on the galley, the galley itself was accompanied by a few frigates and smaller vessels, in which private individuals embarked; the entire fleet consisted of 200 sails, counting galleys, frigates and other craft. More than 900 Spaniards were on the expedition; the governor set sail from Cavite for Pintados in October 1593, to join the part of the fleet under Luis Pérez at Pintados. They were to proceed to the Moluccas. On the second day of this first leg of the expedition, the governor's fleet reached the island of Caca, 24 leagues from Manila and just off the coast of Luzon.

They found it difficult to round the headland known as Punta del Azufre because of a strong head wind. The governor ordered the ships to anchor there for the night, attempt to round the point the next day; the Chinese rowers had been plotting for three days to seize the galley, and
