This is the first study to show the importance of Carlos Frontaura who is a lesser known 19th Century Spanish writer and publisher. Carlos Frontaura is familiar to many scholars of nineteenth century Spain but he has been the subject of relatively little research despite his wide-ranging literary activities and contemporary importance. Until recently, Frontaura has been doubly neglected as both a secondary and a more ideologically conservative figure. This study addresses this gap in the light of increased academic interest and the availability of digital editions of his work and periodicals edited by him and it provides a reference point for future readers and scholars alike. Frontaura was the editor of a leading satirical periodical during the Revolution of 1868 and the turbulent years preceding the Restoration of the Bourbon monarchy. In common with many middle class citizens of the time, Frontaura had actively supported the revolution, but became more and more conservative, finally favoring the Liberal Conservative party of Alfonso XII. He later supplemented his earnings by holding a series of political posts as part of the Restoration establishment, which earned him criticism because it showed a revised set of positions in relation to his earlier writings. The principle aim of this study is to examine the ideology in the works of Carlos Frontaura, and also provides biographical documentation to supplement the argument.
