An admiral in the Spanish navy, de Lezo was named General Commander of Cartagena de Indias late in his career, where he successfully fought a British attack on the city in the year 1741, keeping Cartagena in Spanish hands. Admiral de Lezo is notable for his many war injuries. After joining the navy at age 12, he lost most of his left leg during the War of the Spanish succession, when he was hit by a cannon ball. He then went on to lose his left eye three years later during the Battle of Toulon, before losing his right arm at age 25 during the Siege of Barcelona. He died of the plague.
