GUELL Y RENTE, Juan (goo-ell'), Cuban author, born in Havana in 1815; died in Madrid, Spain, in 1875. He was educated in Havana, and went to Spain in 1835, where he entered the army, but after several years returned to his native city. He was a member of the Spanish cortes several times. He published a volume of poems (1848); "Hojas del Alma," poems (1844); "Ultimos Cantos" (Madrid, (1859)" and" Noches de Estio" (1861).--His brother, Jose, author, born in Havana in IS1S; died in Madrid, Spain. 20 December, 1884, went, in 1885, to Barcelona, Spain, where he received, in 1838, the diploma of LL.D. After spending several years in his native city he returned to Spain, and in 1848, notwithstanding great opposition from high quarters, married Dona Josefa Fernanda, sister to the king consort. Guell suffered many hardships on account of this marriage; his wife was deprived of all the rights and honors belonging to her royal birth, and he was banished from Spain. He went to France, and remained there several years, taking part in many of the conspiracies of the Liberals against the Spanish government. In 1879 Giiell was elected senator for Havana to the Spanish cortes. He published "Amarguras del Corazdn," a volume of poems (Havana, 1848)" " Lagrimas del Corazen," poems (Madrid, 1846)" " Leyendas Americanas," which have been translated into English, French, Italian, and German (1856), and other works in Spanish.
