Víctor Balaguer i Cirera (Barcelona, 1824 - Madrid, 1901). Catalan politician, writer, historian and poet. Victor Balaguer was one of the most important figures of the Catalan Renaixença, not only for actively promoting the return of the Floral Games, but also for fostering a mentality of Catalan collective consciousness. Author of Historia de Cataluña y de la Corona de Aragón (1860-63) and the play written under his pseudonym, Lo trobador de Montserrat (1861), symbols of Catalan tradition are always present in Victor Balaguer's work.
