Welcome to the "Herrederos de Jose Rizal" Project!
Dr. Jose P. Rizal, the Philippine national hero, did not leave any surviving direct descendants. It is a pity how the venerable surname, which was derived from the Spanish "ricial" (meaning "verdant"), is rarely (if at all) used today.
This project aims to create fitting biographies (click on live links to view) for individuals connected by blood to Lolo Pepe. If you wish to contact living family members, please communicate with Jerome of the Rizal Family Foundation.
