Carillo (Dacunha), Don Alfonso (2)
Carillo (D'acunha), Don Alfonso (2)
a Spanish prelate, nephew of the foregoing, was born in Portugal in 1410. He accompanied his uncle to Basle, and on his return was appointed bishop of Siguenza, in 1446 archbishop of Toledo, and afterwards minister of state by Henry IV. This last position gave him a political influence which he used against the king of Castile, his patron. He ever sought to gratify personal ambition, rather than the good of his country. He was at last frustrated in his schemes, and spent his remaining days in a monastery which he had founded at Alcala de Henares. He died July 1, 1482. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog.
