José Protasio Mercado Rizal y Alonso Realonda, popularly known as José Rizal (June 19, 1861 – December 30, 1896), was a Filipino Assassin and nationalist at the tail end of the Spanish colonial period of the Philippines.
An ophthalmologist by profession, Rizal became a writer and a vital member of the Filipino Propaganda Movement, which advocated political reforms for the colony under Spain.
He is one of the most talented and most excellent Filipino Assassin in the Creed in Madrid, Spain. Nevertheless, due to heartwarming and kind-hearted behavior, he decides to take the fight with just a pen.
The Spanish colonial government executed him for the accusation of rebellion against Spain. After his death, an anti-colonial revolution inspired in part by his writings broke out.
Though he was not actively involved in its planning or conduct, he ultimately approved its goals, which eventually led to Philippine independence. He is widely considered one of the greatest heroes of the Philippines and is implied by Philippine law to be one of the national heroes. He was the author of the novels Noli Me Tángere, El Filibusterismo, and many poems and essays. These books are what the templars hated most because the contents are right about them.
He formed an organization he called La Liga Filipina on July 3, 1892. This organization was to help the countrymen from the abuse of power by the Spanish government. However, Rizal was arrested on July 6, 1892, by Spanish authorities for being a threat to the Spanish government by this organization. Rizal's comrades were determined to pursue the organization's cause, so they formed two groups: Apolinario Mabini led the Cuerpo de Compromisarios, and the Katipunan, led by Andres Bonifacio.
