Perez Galdos left the Canary Islands for Madrid in 1862 where he spent most of the rest of his life. Often called the greatest Spanish novelist since Cervantes, Perez Galdos wrote novels and plays and is probably best remembered for his series of 46 historical novels, Episodios Nacionales, detailing episodes in Spanish history from 1805 to the end of the century. These include Dona Perfecta (1876), La familia de León Roch (1878), and his four-volume masterpiece, Fortunata and Jacinta (1887). Perez Galdos was elected to the Spanish Royal Academy in 1896 and was appointed deputy of the Madrid republican party in 1907. Going blind in 1912, he continued to dictate books until his death.
