Although he could conceivably fit some of those descriptions depending on interpretation, I would not call him an entertainer.
Not an official question but are you giving vague / hedgy answers on purpose?

I’m just trying to avoid classifying a person based on something that’s not their primary field.

I imagine he was probably a famous dentist or something like that.

I’ll take “country” liberally and say yes.
Quite unfortunate, since this answer remains unclear.

To clarify, I was merely referring to the political state in his country during his life: he is considered to be a native of one of the countries in Jamie’s list.

Hmm, maybe he was kind of a military man or rebel, with the 'political state' of his nation during his life ... I'm just not sure if I should ask that question since my last hunch was totally wrong ... but you live only once (except when you play a lot of mafia) (or computer games):

"Was he primarily a military man, military leader, rebel, political reformer and/or political leader involved in the political state of his (and maybe neighbouring) country(/ies)?"

If the answer to the question above is yes AND the answer of the Spanish language is also yes, then I would like to guess (if there is a single 'no' then please disregard my following guess): Is the person we search Simón José Antonio de la Santísima Trinidad Bolívar y Palacios, better known as Simón Bolívar?

Yes.

There is a 0% chance that the person we're trying to guess is from Mongrovia, btw. It does not exist. So it's one of the other countries on that list.

You can learn more about Mongrovia, here:

I think the vague hinty about country of origin is important... it makes me think of something like Serbia, or the Czech Republic... a map-changing place.

Like Spanish colonies that formed Gran Colombia and then broke apart in smaller states?
