Illustrados in Madrid: Jose Rizal is in the second row, fifth from right.

On his 156th birth anniversary today, June 19, 2017, let’s revisit in earlier Forum posts ("Did Rizal ever speak and write in English?" and other stories) the life of Dr. Jose P. Rizal as multilingual Filipino and citizen of the world, great writer and poet, expatriate and multinational traveler, scholar of an astoundingly wide range of interests, quintessential lover of women, and peaceable patriot and revolutionary who kindled the spirit of the fight for independence of the future Philippine Republic.

The stories posted in the Forum over the years are as follows:
