Marquis de Hermonas (also Marquis d'Hermonas; Marquis D'Hermona) was a Spanish nobleman who was head (Governor?) of Spanish ruled Saint Dominque until replaced by General Cabrera. (Parkinson, p. 77)

Rainsford, in his 1802 book Memoir of transactions that took place in St. Domingo, attributes the following quote to Hermonas: "...if the Supreme had descended on earth, he could not inhabit a heart more apparently good, than that of Toussaint L'Ouverture."
