Dr. Jose Rizal's father is FRANCISCO RIZAL MERCADO(1820s) and mother is TEODORA ALONSO(1830s).
Married in 1848 in Kalamba. During 1850s Francisco changed his name from Mercado to Rizal per Spanish Decree authorizing such changes. But Francisco and some children continued to use Mercado to avoid confusion in their merchant activities although his children were born with Rizal family name, like Jose Protacio Rizal.
Dr. Jose Rizal has no descendants.
