Uruguayan politician, born in Brazil as Aparício Saraiva, 1855-1904

Fishburn and Hughes: A Uruguayan landowner and caudillo, uncultured and politically unsophisticated, whose magnetic personality secured him a following among the gauchos of the Interior. In 1897 he led the revolt of the Blancos, a nationalist group demanding free elections and representation of all parties in the government, against the dictatorship of Idiarte Borda. Borda was assassinated in 1897 and the armed conflict ended in a peace pact, but the nationalist faction under Saravia was left isolated and on 1 January 1904 Saravia again led his troops against the Government of Batlle in an attempt to prevent elections in which his party was not represented. After a series of battles his side was finally defeated at Masoller. Saravia was wounded and died in Brazil. After his death a legend sprang up that he would return. See Illesca, Tupambaé.
