Francisco José was born in Fuendetodos, Aragon, Spain on March 30, 1746.[1] He was a son of José Goya and Gracia Lucientes.[1]

Early Years

Francisco was born to a poor family in rural Spain.[2] Francisco's father, Jose, was the son of a notary.[1] A notary had a little education and could provide the simplest of legal services, somewhat a country lawyer.[1] Francisco's mother was of the hidalgo class, the most minor of nobility, they were financially handicapped by a prohibition against doing useful work, having a trade or a craft.[1]


Francisco José married to Josefa Bayeu.
