Alfonso Martínez Hernández (April 14, 1981-April 29, 2002) was the eldest son of Creeperian Emperor Alfonso VI. Alfonso was raised by his father and uncles, Adolfo V and Romero III, and was the heir to the imperial throne of Creeperopolis. He entered the Creeperian military in 1989 and began learning Creeperian military tactics, preparing himself to fight the then long ongoing Third Senvarian Insurgency and the currently ongoing Mara War. He finished his studies in 1993 and entered the Creeperian Army immediately as a General, two years before his younger brother Alexander and four before his youngest brother Salvador.
On April 29, 2002, Alfonso Martínez Hernández was shot in Adolfosburg when he was on his way to oversee the construction of a religious monument in the city. The bullet came from a sniper believed to be hiding in a nearby skyscraper. The country immediately went on high alert and the Army was stationed in the streets of Salvador, Adolfosburg, and San Salvador to thwart any other possible assassination attempts.
The National Intelligence Directorate was immediately ordered to investigate the assassination but the DINA found little to no evidence as to who the assassin was, where the assassin was, and why the Grand Prince was assassinated. Alfonso VI was infuriated at the poor investigation conducted by the DINA and he began to suspect that the DINA itself assassinated the Grand Prince. On October 19, 2002, Emmanuel Cabañeras Videla, the then Chief of the DINA, was assassinated in his home. It is heavily believed that Alfonso VI ordered the assassination. Cabañeras Videla was succeeded by his son, Augusto Cabañeras Gutiérrez, as Minister of Defense of Creeperopolis, Chief of the National Intelligence Directorate, and Chief Field Marshal of Creeperopolis.
The death of his Alfonso Martínez Hernández made Alexander Martínez Hernández the heir of Alfonso VI and the Grand Prince of Creeperopolis and would eventually lead to the 2003 Creeperian coup d'état on June 18, 2003.
