Joven Hernando's history
Joven Hernando and the Philippine history portrayed in Heneral Luna and Goyo: The Boy General do not reflect the real war between the Philippines and the Americans between 1899 and 1902.
In Heneral Luna, Joven Hernando is a student, journalist, writer, and young patriot. He idolizes General Antonio Luna. Joven narrates General Luna’s life. Antonio shares his secrets with the young journalist before the citizens put him to death.
In The Boy General, Goyo takes over the country's leadership after Antonio Luna's assassination. He is President Aguinaldo's favorite in the military, and many see him as his hatchet man.
General Goyo kills Luna’s followers who oppose the new regime. He appoints the 19-year-old Joven as his photographer. Joven worked for his uncle before joining Goyo's men.
The war between Goyo and the Americans catches the Philippine army off guard. They have no time to prepare for the invasion.
What caused Joven Hernando's death?
Joven does not die in the movie. He escapes death when Quezon overran the government. He falls off the cliff while trying to flee with Garcia’s son, Kiki.
An American soldier (Luna’s former aide) saves him, Kiki, and Eduardo Rusca (Antonio Luna’s former assistant). It shows how loyal Luna's men were to each other.
According to Joven Hernando's Wiki information, the Americans strip off Goyo's corpse after the battle and bury him at a crude grave in Mount Tirad. Joven, the writer, is left behind when his very purpose is to write about the life of Luna.
The young general was a fervent loyalist of President Aguinaldo. Joven Hernando and Remedios Nable reveal Goyo’s character as a womanizer and a hero.
Journalist Joven is loyal to Goyo because they come from Antonio Luna’s government. His photography job is relevant to Goyo's crew.
