Biography of Tatiana Pérez de Guzmán el Bueno
Tatiana Pérez de Guzmán el Bueno y Seebacher was born in San Sebastián on October 26th, 1923, and lived in Madrid all her life.
Tatiana came from a family with ancient roots in the history of Spain, whose origins date back to the Golfines of Cáceres, from the 13th century, and the Pérez de Guzmán el Bueno de Córdoba, descendants of the defender of Tarifa and Leonor López de Córdoba, the favourite of Queen Catherine of Lancaster.
After a childhood and youth lived in her family environment in Madrid’s Paseo del General Martínez Campos, in 1949 she married Julio Peláez Avendaño, a physicist by profession, who instilled in her a love of science and research.
In 1953, the couple settled in Madrid’s Quinta Torre Arias, where they developed their love for the environment. After the death of her father in 1977, Tatiana became the 8th Countess of Torre Arias and Grandee of Spain, 11th Marchioness of Santa Marta and Marchioness of Torre de Esteban Hambrán.
Over time, Tatiana Pérez de Guzmán el Bueno and Julio Peláez decided to establish a Foundation that, after their death, would preserve the family heritage and make it work for the benefit of society. After the death of her husband in 2003, Tatiana returned to her house in Martínez Campos and, later, constituted the Foundation, being its first President.
Tatiana Pérez de Guzmán el Bueno passed away on October 1st, 2012, leaving the Foundation that bears her name as its heir.
The Tatiana Pérez de Guzmán el Bueno Foundation was born from the past in order to help build the future of new generations.
