  4. The greatest misfortune of jose rizal was when he failed to get justice for his family and when He lost his gold watch chain with a locket containing the picture of Leonor Rivera.Rizal seeks help from the Filipino colony, the Asociacion Hispano-Filipina and the liberal Spanish newspapers in securing justice for the oppressed Calamba tenants including his family.
    Rizal received a letter from Leonor about her coming marriage to an Englishman (the choice of her mother) and asking for forgiveness.
    Rizal confided with his friend, Blumenttrit..
    Rizal, saying that his wife cannot understand how a woman whom a Rizal has honored with his love, love would be able to abandon him and said that Rizal has a courageous heart, and he is in love with a nobler woman, the Motherland.
    Blumenttrit sent another letter to Rizal saying that if Leonor was able to renounce a Rizal, she did not possess the nobility of his spirit
    In other words, she is not the woman for Rizal.

  5. One of the greatest misfortune of Jose Rizal when he is in Madrid, is when his beloved sweetheart Leonor Rivera send him a letter saying that she will going to marry a British engineer because of her mother choice so she is asking for the forgiveness to his love Rizal.Rizal got frustrated because of the letter he received from the women he love Leonor Rivera, his heart got broken. In order to survive the failure he had with Leonor he open up his problem to his beloved best of friends Blumentritt, so Blumentritt advice him that maybe Leonor is not really meant to him and because of the advice of his best friend Rizal become strong to fight the failure he had with Leonor

    Rizals' greatest misfortune was when he was in Madrid. One night when he attended a play together with his friends at Teatro Apolo where he lost his chain with a locket containing the picture of the girl he was very in love, Leonor Rivera.With the lost of that locket there he proved to be his misfortune love to her, after that he receive a letter that Leonor Rivera is getting married to a British engineer. It makes Rizal so depressed but then he encounter all of these, for he has in mind that there is still someone waiting for him and in need of his love, his countrymen and his beloved mother land, and Rizal is just open minded and has an attitude of positivity in life, that is why encounter all those misfortune.
    Another misfortune he have is the time when he is seeking for justice for his family.

  20. Out of the many misfortunes experienced by Rizal in Madrid, I believe that the "Infidelity of Leonor Rivera" had a great impact on his mission in this world. Rizal, with a bitter heart due to so many disappointments he encountered in Madrid experienced another, when he lost his gold watch chain with a locket containing the picture of her beloved sweetheart - Leonor Rivera. The loss of the locket only proved that he and Leonor cannot be together anymore for he received a letter from her announcing of her upcoming marriage with an Englishman in the name of Henry Kippings which was arranged by her mother; and asking for his forgiveness. Rizal with a weary heart seek advice from his best friend after several weeks of agony due to the incident. Of course, as best friend, Bluementritt comforted Rizal by writing back to all his letters and giving him words of wisdom only to mend his broken heart. As quoted by Bluementritt, " You have a courageous heart, and you are in love with a nobler woman, the Motherland." And another, " She is like a child who cast away a diamond to seize a pebble... In other words, she is not the woman for Rizal."
