  Miguel de Alava - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Don Miguel Ricardo de Alava, Marquess of Alava (1770-1843) was a Spanish General and statesman.
On the restoration of Ferdinand, Alava was cast into prison, but the influence of his uncle Ethenard, the inquisitor, and of Wellington secured his speedy release.
When the French invested Cadiz, Alava was commissioned by the Cortes to treat with the Duc d'Angoulême, and the negotiations resulted in the restoration of Ferdinand, who pledged himself to a liberal policy.

Alava had been posted to the 'Santa Ana,' the 112-gun flagship of his uncle, Vice-Admiral Ignacio-Maria de Alava y Saenz de Navarrete (1750-1817).
At Trafalgar, Alava y Saenz de Navarrete commanded the Cadiz squadron and was second-in-command to Admiral Don Federico-Carlos Gravina y Napoli (1756-09.03.1806) on the 112-gun 'Principe de Asturias' [1].
