Diego Marin was born in Coruna del Conde back in 1757. I don’t have much to offer other than after the death of his father he became head of the household. He worked in the fields tending his sheep while also working as an agricultural laborer.
Diego was also an inventor, one of them helped the functionality of watermills, another one which helped the process of threshing are just two examples. Sadly, he died in 1799 at 44.
What you may not know about Diego Marin Aguiler. On the night of May 1793 with the help of a blacksmith and one of his sisters placed a glider he had made on top of the castle Coruna del Conde and off he went. He flew 5-6 feet off the ground for about 300-400 yards crossing the river Arandilla. Sad part about this is the inhabitants of the town believed he was a lunatic therefore burning his “demonic flapping-wing creation. Therefore, no trace of the invention survived. Until tomorrow keep a smile on your face, be courteous and pass it on
