Abstract

En este trabajo se estudia la actividad comercial del comerciante gaditano Esteban Baltasar Amador y sus hijos en Cartagena de Indias en las décadas finales del siglo XVIII y a comienzos del XIX. La familia Amador Rodríguez y sus allegados, como los Arrazola y los Pombo, ocuparon una posición central en el comercio con España y la actividad del Consulado de Cartagena. El hecho de haber tenido diez hijos que llegaron a una edad adulta le permitió a Esteban Baltazar Amador establecer una extensa red familiar con conexiones en Cádiz, La Guaira, Maracaibo, Santa Fe de Bogota y Guayaquil. Durante la lucha por la independencia de Cartagena de Indias los hermanos Amador Rodríguez ocuparon un papel prominente entre las filas patriotas, habiendo sido participes en la firma del Acta de Declaración de Independencia y de la Constitución, así como en la defensa de la ciudad durante el sitio de Morillo. Después de la independencia esta familia dejo de tener una posición económica y una influencia política destacada, especialmente después de la muerte de Juan de Dios Amador, el más ilustre de los hijos de Esteban Baltazar.
