Luis José Sartorius, 1st Count of San Luis

Don Luis José Sartorius y Tapia, 1st Count of San Luis (Seville, Spain, 1820 – Madrid, Spain, 22 February 1871) was a Spanish noble, politician and journalist who served as Prime Minister of Spain from 1853 to 1854, during the reign of Queen Isabella II.

Sartorius, a man of very traditional convictions, was the leader of a faction of the Moderate Party which, because of his Polish origin, was known as the polacos (English: the polish). His newspaper, El Herlado, became one of the mainstays of the moderates during the regency of the progressivist Baldomero Espartero. During the Moderate decade (1844-1854), Sartorius held several political offices, such as Minister of Gobernation, and became Prime Minister in 1853.
