Anzoategui in the past, History of Anzoategui

Named after the great hero of Venezuelan independence, Jose Antonio Anzoategui (1789–1819), this state has its own history. The city of Barcelona, which is currently the states capital, was founded in 1677. The present Anzoategui State was included within the Cumana Province, which was itself part of the Captaincy General of Venezuela, along with some other provinces (Guayana, Maracaibo, Caracas, Margarita and Trinidad). In 1810, it was separated from the province. It was in 1909 that it acquired the present political distribution.
