José Faustino Sánchez Carrión, was a pro-independence pioneer and Peruvian political ideologist. Known as the "Solitario de Sayán", he had a decisive role in establishing the republican system of government in his country. He was one of the editors of the first Political Constitution of Peru, of a liberal nature. He later joined the commission that went to Guayaquil to invite Bolivar to Peru. He was Secretary or General Minister of Bolívar, whom he accompanied throughout his victorious campaign in Peruvian soil, managing the necessary resources for the Libertador United Army, which he defeated in Junín and Ayacucho.
Then he was Minister of Government and Foreign Affairs, from 1824 to 1825, and as such signed the invitations sent by Bolívar to the American governments to send their representatives to an amphithesion congress, which would be the Congress of Panama. He died prematurely, victim of an illness.
