About Dr. Jose Rizal

Jose Protacio "Pepe" Mercado Rizal is the Philippine national hero, whose writings inspired the Filipino movement for freedom from Spanish rule. More here:

During his stay in Spain, Rizal became the Master Mason in Acacia Lodge No. 9 in 1884.

Jose and his siblings had to adopt their father's second family name 'Rizal' to disassociate themselves from the links between 'Mercado' and the Gomburza incident.
