Origin of the room's name

Francisco de Vitoria (1483 – 1546). Descendant of a family from the capital of Álava, he was a theologian, philosopher, jurist and Dominican friar. He trained in Arts and Theology in Paris and was a professor at the universities of Paris, Valladolid and Salamanca. At the latter, he became the Prime Chair of Theology in 1526. His students, who attended his classes with other teachers, nicknamed him "the maestro".

He's considered to be the father of modern international law. Honoured by the UN, the ‘Hall of Councils’ in the Palace of Nations bears his name.
