PARADA-RAMIREZ, José Gregorio. Venezuela’s Francisco de Miranda, initiated Freemason after his Death?. REHMLAC [online]. 2020, vol.11, n.2, pp.28-43. ISSN 1659-4223.

Much has been said when creating connections between Freemasonry and the Precursor of Venezuela’s independence Francisco de Miranda. The story begins in France with a very special encounter between two great men: Miranda and Bonaparte. Both have something in common besides their great military genius: they are usually classified into the Masonic ranks without enough evidence to support such a claim. In this article we try to review all possible connections between Francisco de Miranda and members of this brotherhood, a fact that is not determinant for him to be included among the members of the famous brotherhood.

Keywords : Miranda; Bonaparte; Freemasonry; Revolution; Independence.
