RADA, Juan de (rah-dah), Spanish captain, born in Navarre, in the latter half of the 15th century; died in Jauja, Peru, in 1542. In 1534 he went to Peru with the expedition of Pedro de Alvarado, and afterward served under the orders of Diego Almegro. He soon won the esteem of Almagro, was appointed mediator in the arrangement with Francisco Pizarro about the government of the province of New Toledo, and took part in the battle of Salinas. After Almagro's death, Rada took charge of his son, as tutor, and was the principal instigator of the plot against the Marquis Pizarro, and the leader of the eighteen men that penetrated into the governor's house on 26 June, 1541, and murdered him. Rada proclaimed the son of Almegro governor of Peru, and concentrated troops to attack the partisans of Pizarro in Cuzco, but died on the march in Jauja.
