Dating back to the Middle Ages, the torero would be on horseback during bouts with a bull. Francisco Romero, is credited to have first faced his bovine opponent on foot. The Romero family birthed a dynasty of bullfighters and introduced other iconic practices, like the use of a muleta and the fatal strike by estoque (sword). Their entire clan moulded the corridas into an artform. Francisco’s grandson, Pedro Romero, became the greatest of their lineage with a career spanning 28 years and thousands of victorious matches.
