AbstractMonardes, Nicolás Bautista. (b. Seville, Spain, c. 1492-1508; d. Seville, 1588) Born in Seville, Monardes was son of a bookseller of Geno ese origin. The date of bis birth is still unknown, but suggested dates oscillate between 1492 and 1508. His mother, Ana de Alfa ro, was daughter of the physician and surgeon Martín de Alfara. Perhaps this family influence decided his future profession. Few other facts about his life are known befare 1533, when he returned to Seville after finishing his university studies. In the University of Alcalá he graduated in arts and philosophy (1530) and medicine (1533). Returning to Seville, he spent bis practica! training years with Garcia Pérez de Morales, whose daughter Catalina he married in 1537. They had seven children, four of whom moved to America. Monardes practiced medicine in Seville over more than fifty years. The medical experience allowed him to acquire social prestige and economic prosperity and enabled him to pursue his three other outstanding activities: the business related to overseas commerce, the publication of medical works on therapeutics and materia medica, and the acquisition of knowledge through the gathering of natural products and the cultivation of a medicinal garden.
