CASTRO, Vaea de, Spanish officer, born at Leon; died in 1558. He was a judge of the royal court at Valladolid, when, in 1540, Charles V. sent him as governor to Peru, then disturbed by the rebellion of Ahnagro. In 1542 a battle was fought at Chu-pas, in which Almagro was defeated and taken, and, by order of Castro, executed on the spot with some of his followers. Castro was superseded in 1544, and returned to Spain, where he was impris-oned for five years at the castle of Ar~valo. He was declared innocent by the council of Indies, and subsequently appointed counselor of Castile.
