SARAVIA, Melchor Bravo de, governor of Chili, born in Soria early in the 16th century; died in Spain about 1579. In 1547, when the audience of New Granada was created, he was appointed judge, but did not take his seat, as he was promoted by the emperor to the audience of Peru, where he arrived in June, 1549. In 1552, at the death of Antonio de Mendoza, viceroy of Peru, the audience took charge of the government, and directed the operations against the rebellious Francisco Her-nandez Giron. Saravia showed much zeal and good-will, but little aptitude in military affairs; nevertheless, King Philip II. in 1569 rewarded him with the governorship of Chili, which he held until 1575. He then returned to Spain, where he died several years afterward. Saravia left an interesting book entitled " Antigi;tedades Peruanas," which is frequently cited by Juan de Velasco in his " His-toria del reino de Quite."
