Tomas de Zumalacarregui [1788 - 1835]. Spanish Carlist general. A professional soldier, he fought against the French in the Peninsular War (1808–14) and supported the absolutist cause during the disturbances of 1820–23. When King Ferdinand VII died (1833), Zumalacárregui supported the claim of Ferdinand's brother Don Carlos to the throne. He was undefeated until his death in the siege of Bilbao in 1835.
