LANCHERO, Luis (lan-tchay'-ro), Spanish soldier, died in Tunja, Colombia, in 1562. He was captain of the guards to the Emperor Charles V., and served under the Constable of Bourbon at the siege of Rome in 1527, but in 1533 left the Spanish army and went to Venezuela in search of adventures. He entered the service of Geronimo de Ortal; but not meeting with the success he expected, he joined Nicholas Federmann, with whom he crossed the Andes to Santa Fe de Bogota. He filled the highest posts in this colony, and although he had been persecuted by the visitor Armendariz, when this officer fell into disgrace, Lanchero protected him, defrayed the cost of his journey to Spain, and aided him to justify himself. Besides filling many civil posts, Lanchero was engaged in most of the military expeditions of his time. In 1559 he founded the city of Trinidad de los Muzos (now Muzo).
