יצחק קארו

(1458 - 1535 CE) (1458 - 1535 לספירה)

He was born and grew up in Toledo. However, due to the inquisition, he first moved to Portugal and then to Turkey. There, he published his masterful commentary on the Torah and raised his nephew, Rabbi Yosef Karo, author of the Shulchan Arukh. He eventually went to live in Israel, but it is not clear if he arrived and how and where he died.
