The Frenchmen

At the end of the seventeenth century, in front of the New Coliseum (A theater downtown) a group of friends met. Tradition baptized them as Afrancesados because they showed a strong preference and taste for French ideals and tastes. The best-known Frenchmen, Esteban Maurel, Juan Laussel, Jerónimo Covarrubias Portatui, Juan de Murguiery, and Manuel Enderica.

Viceroy Branciforte saw subversive ideas in these meetings and once ordered that they be arrested while they were at a social gathering in the Café de la Profesa, such was his admiration for France that to inflict more drama on the scene, the Frenchmen sang "La Marseilles ", the French national anthem accompanied on the piano by the pianist of the cathedral.
