"“Gloria al bravo pueblo"” (Glory to the Brave People)

Venezuela'’s national anthem, “"Gloria al bravo pueblo,"” was adopted in 1881, with lyrics by Vicente Salias and music by Juan Jose Landaeta. The lyrics were written in 1810, and the music was composed some years later. Both Salias and Landaeta were executed in 1814 during Venezuela's struggle for independence.
