That would be Andres Bello, “Venezuelan humanist, poet, lawmaker, philosopher, educator and philologist.” Seemed to have spent most of his life out of Venezuela; went to England at the age of 29, but the wiki bio doesn’t say how long he stayed. Went to Chile in 1829, became a Senator, founded the U of C, and apparently died there.

Doesn’t seem to have been bothered much by excessive amusement.
