Life

Andres de Soto was born in Sahagún, Spain, in 1552 or 1553.

He entered the Recollect Franciscan Order at the age of 20. In 1599 he was appointed as confessor to the Infanta Isabella and travelled to the Spanish Netherlands. He remained the Infanta's confessor until his death, 26 years later.

In 1604 he helped re-establish the Franciscan Recollect convent in Boetendael, which had been badly damaged and abandoned in 1579. In 1616 he helped found the Annunciate convent in Brussels. In 1622, a year after Isabella's husband, the Archduke Albert, had died, Soto received her profession as a Franciscan Tertiary.

He died in Brussels on 5 April 1625.
