Chamorro (family)

The Chamorro family has its origin in Spain. A branch of the family became prominent in Nicaragua in the 18th century and its influence continues to the present. Historically, the Chamorros have been closely associated with the Conservatives, but the Sandinista Revolution has divided their loyalties, with some members supporting the Sandinistas. Outstanding members of this family are:
