The answer to this is Pedro Paterno. The Philippines has a lot of heroes but Pedro Paterno is not one of the names that a lot of Filipinos are familiar with. Those who love Philippine history will definitely recognize him as one of the Filipino politicians at that time. Aside from being a politician, he also wrote some novels and some poems.
He comes from an affluent family. In fact, his parents are considered Don and Dona at that time. These are some of the tiles used for those who are rich. This explains why he was able to get formal education at the time when most Filipinos were deprived of going to school.
