BOBADILLA, Francisco (bo-bah-deel'-ya), Spanish official; died 29 June 1502. He was sent to Santo Domingo to re-establish order and to put an end to dissensions, arriving in 1500. He soon ordered Columbus and his brother sent to Spain as prisoners in chains. When they arrived at Cadiz, Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand disapproved of Bobadilla's action, reinstated Columbus in his honors and emoluments, and immediately sent Ni-colds de Obando to replace Bobadilla. Under his administration disorders had multiplied to an alarming extent. Columbus landed again in Hispaniola on the very day that Bobadilla and several of his supporters started for Spain. Their fleet was hardly out of sight when it was wrecked by a hurricane, and Bobadilla perished.
