GLICERA MARELLA VILLAVICENCIO

She and her husband Eulalio contributed huge amounts of money to support the Propaganda Movement. They also helped disseminate leaflets, pamphlets, and copies of La Solidaridad.

When her husband was arrested by the Spanish authorities, she refused to name Katipuneros and divulge secrets about the Katipunan, even if doing so would mean her husband's release from prison.

After the death of her husband, she converted their home into an army headquarters.



She donated the family boat Bulusan to Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo. The ship transported Filipino troops to Bicol and Visayas region.

During the Filipino-American War, the Americans deported her whole family to Manila. They also confiscated their properties and turned the house into an army hospital.

In recognition of her valuable services to the Philippines Revolution, General Emilio Aguinaldo named her Madrina-General de las Fuerzas Revolucionarios (Matriarch-General of the Revolutionary Forces) on June 12, 1898.
