APODACA, Juan Ruiz (ah-po-dah'-ka), Spanish naval officer, born about 1770" died in 1835. He entered the service in 1770, and distinguished himself in several encounters with the English. In 1807 he was given the command of a fleet, and the next year he captured the French fleet in Cadiz. About 1810 he was appointed captain-general of Cuba and Florida, and in 1816 he was transferred to Mexico as viceroy of New Spain. While in Mexico he suppressed several strong bands of insurgents, and for this and other services his government with the title of Count of Venadito rewarded him. He returned to Spain in 1822, and was subsequently promoted to the rank of captain-general of the navy.
