Francisco Antonio de Agurto, Marquis of Gastañaga
He was of Basque origin and became first Marquis de Gastañaga in 1676. Agurto was Governor of the Habsburg Netherlands between 1685 and 1692, where he led the Spanish troops in the Battle of Fleurus (1690) and unsuccessfully defended Mons against the French. He began a new royal chapel of Saint Joseph in Waterloo in 1687 an attempt to curry favour with the court, but was recalled to Madrid for his failure to hold Mons.
He never married. After his death, the title of Marquis of Gastañaga went to his brother, Iñigo Eugenio (1648–1715).
