ARBOLEDA, Julio (ar-bo-lay'-dah), Colombian poet, d. in 1872. He received his education in Europe, and wrote in French, English, and Italian, as well as in his own language. His poems, entitled “Dios y la virtud,” “Estoy en la cárcel,” “Me ausento,” “Te quiero,” and the long one called “Gonzalo de Oyón,” deserve especial notice. He was assassinated, it is supposed, by political enemies. A collection of his poetry was republished in New York in 1884.
