14 HUGO O´DONNELL Y DUQUE DE ESTRADA ABSTRACT The later military and political life of Leopoldo O´Donnell can only be understood knowing the long military history of his family, his status as a grandson of Irishmen but already a true Spaniard, and his adaptation to historical circumstances where the military and political arenas influenced and intersected one another, where the word cannot be of “pure” military men. The generation before him proves this already, and together with brilliant military records, the first militancies precede him, as well as the first public responsibilities, familiar and near, some of them very important in the History of Spain. KEY WORDS: History of Ireland; Spanish-Irish relations; Irish regiments; War of the Independence; Liberalism; nineteenth century military. * * * * * Revista de Historia Militar, II extraordinario de 2017, pp. 14-54.
