About Alonso Manrique de Lara, arzobispo de Sevilla

Alfonso or Alonso Manrique de Lara y Solís, (Segura de León in Badajoz, Spain, 1471? but before 1476 - Seville, 28 September 1538), Bishop of Badajoz, (September 1499 until before 1516) was a Spanish churchman. He was Bishop of Cordoba, (August 1516 - 1523), and Archbishop of Seville (from August 1523). He was Inquisitor general (September 1523 onwards) as a successor of Adrian of Utrecht, (later Pope Adrian VI]], and cardinal priest in Rome chosen around February - April 1531. Died on September 28, 1538, Seville, of a fall from a horse.

He seems to be a son from the third marriage of famous Rodrigo Manrique with a Solís-Castañeda woman , (1404 - Ocaña, 1476), being therefore a very young step brother of famous poet Jorge Manrique de Lara, (circa 1440 - 1479, sieging the castle of Garcimuñoz). (He might also be a son of Rodrigo Manrique de Lara, in turn grandson of the famous Rodrigo.)
