FLORES, Ignacio, South American administrator, born in Satacunga, Ecuador, early in the 18th century; died in Buenos Ayres in 1786. He completed his education in Spain, and became professor in a College in Madrid, but entered the army and returned to South America, rising gradually to the rank of colonel. In 1782 he was appointed president of Charcas, Upper Peru, which was then in a disturbed state, owing to the consequences of TupacAmaru's Indian revolt. He subdued the Indians after a bloody struggle, and restored order ; but the Spanish judges of the audiencia, jealous of the position acquired by a Spanish-American, represented to the viceroy of Peru that Flores, instead of being the pacificator, had been one of the promoters of the insurrection. He was in consequence deposed and ordered to present himself in Buenos Ayres, where he arrived early in 1784, but died before his trial, which had been intentionally delayed. While in College he wrote a novel, "Viajes de Enrique Wanton," a delicate satire on England, France, and Spain.
