José María Calatrava y Peinado

José María Calatrava y Peinado (Mérida, Spain, 26 February 1781 – Madrid, 16 January 1846) was a Spanish politician who served as Prime Minister of Spain and Minister of State between 1836 and 1837.

The main action of Calatrava's administration was proclaiming the constitution of 1837 which granted freedom of religion in Spain while still requiring the state to support the Roman Catholic Church. This was too drastic a change for many in Spain and it caused the downfall of Calatrava's government.[1]
