ALCALDE

I.33.1

ALCALDE, the Spanish equivalent of the French Maire, the German Bürgermeister and Schulze, the Italian Podesta, the English Mayor. The powers of this office were much more extensive formerly than now, for they united judicial with administrative functions. The history of alcaldes may be found in the excellent work of Don Manuel Colmeiro, entitled Direcho Administrativo EspaÑol, Madrid and Santiago, 1850, 2 vols. 8vo.
