Count of la Conquista

Don Mateo de Toro Zambrano
Count of la Conquista (Spanish: Conde de la Conquista) is an 18th-century Spanish hereditary title, famously held by Mateo de Toro Zambrano y Ureta, who was Royal Governor of Chile as well as President of the Government Junta of the Kingdom of Chile, which is generally seen as the first step of Chilean independence.

The title was created by King Charles III in 1770, based on Chilean estates to be inherited by primogeniture (Spanish: Mayorazgo) but was extinguished with the abolition of the nobility titles by the Chilean government after the Independence of that country from Spain. On March 5, 1857 it was revived by Queen Isabella II for the heir of the last holder.
