Del Duero, Juan. Juan Del Duero was created by the Spanish author Prudencio Iglesias Hermida and appeared in five novels from 1913 to 1918, beginning with El Asesinato de Sarah Bernhard.

Juan Del Duero is a Lupin. Del Duero is a Spanish master thief. He is wry, good-humored (described as “a genial bandit”), and well-educated. He’s also an adrenaline junky who lives to steal but is occasionally capable of generosity and kindliness. He is well-spoken and talkative, which helps him swindle and con his targets, and he has a taste for works of art and precious stones, which he is why repeatedly victimizes the Cathedral of Seville as well as the Vatican Museum. He plans his robberies carefully, so that they are individual works of art.
