Text: Signature image of Tomas de Torquemada aka. Grand Inquisitor, by George Stuart.

He brought terror to all at the mention of his name

Mild-mannered, soft spoken, and a believer in Christian charity, he was the Grand Inquisitor of Spain, responsible for the deaths of thousands and the expulsion of millions. His name is synonymous with the horrors of the Inquisition and the era of dread that it represented.
