Simón José Antonio de la Santísima Trinidad Bolívar Palacios y Blanco called El Libertador (born July 24, 1783 in Caracas, Captaincy General of Venezuela – died December 17, 1830, in Santa Marta, Colombia) was a leader of several independence movements throughout South America, collectively known as Bolívar's War.

Together with José de San Martín, Bolívar is regarded as one of the Liberators of Spanish South America. He is also considered the "George Washington of South America" due to his leadership in liberating several former Spanish colonies, just as Washington did for what would later become the United States.
