MONTEVERDE, Juan Domingo, Spanish soldier, born in Spain about 1772; died there in 1820. He served in the Spanish navy and had become captain in 1811, when he was sent by the junta of Cadiz to suppress the revolt in Venezuela. Land-lag at Core, he rapidly took several large towns, compelled General Francisco Miranda to capitulate, 12 July, 1812, and sent that patriot to Spain, as a prisoner, in violation of the terms of agreement. He also treated the native chieftains and their families with much perfidy. His severities were a principal cause of the second insurrection, headed by Simon Bolivar (q. v.), by whom Monteverde was subsequently driven from Venezuela.
