Personal Life of Andres Bonifacio
Bonifacio is Filipino-Mestizo through his mother, Spanish Catalina de Castro who hailed from Zambales. His father Santiago Bonifacio, meanwhile was a teniente mayor in Tondo.

Bonifacio learned the alphabet at the age of 10. He also studied Latin and Mathematics via a private school. He was also known to be fluent in Spanish and English. He read books about Penal and Civil Codes, the French Revolution, Biographies of United States Presidents, Les Miserables, Le Juif Errant, Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo.
Andres Bonifacio died on May 10, 1897 at the age of 33 in Maragondon Cavite. He was tried and unjustly executed (murdered) together with his brother Procopio, by the Magdalo faction of the Katipunan headed by Emilio Aguinaldo - all to wrest political and military power from Bonifacio. This blot in Philippine history forever tarnished the name of former President Aguinaldo.
