Francisco José de Paula Santander y Omaña (Villa del Rosario de Cúcuta, Colombia, April 2, 1792 – Santa Fé de Bogotá, Colombia, May 6, 1840), was a Colombian military and political leader during the 1810–1819 War of Independence of the United Provinces of New Granada (present-day Colombia). He was the acting President of Gran Colombia between 1819 and 1826, and later elected by Congress as the President of the Republic of New Granada between 1832 and 1837. Santander came to be known as "The Man of the Laws". Adapted from Wikipedia
