Isaac Peral


Spanish engineer, naval officer and designer of the Peral Submarine (the first submarine with the ability to launch torpedoes). He joined the Spanish navy in 1866, intervening in the Ten Years' War in Cuba and the Third Carlist War, for which he was praised and honored. He also stressed on work and scientific missions and in 1883 took over the chair of mathematical physics at the School of Advanced Studies of the Navy. His electric-powered submarine was successfully launched in 1888, but it was not accepted by the naval authorities. He then left the navy to develop other inventions commercially.

After an operation in Berlin to cure the brain tumor he had been suffering from for some years, Peral contracted meningitis. He died from it in Berlin in May 1895. Initially buried in Madrid, in 1911 his body was relocated to Cartagena, where there is now a museum devoted to his persona and inventions.
