"GLORIA AL BRAVO PUEBLO" (Glory to the Brave People) was adopted as Venezuela
Venezuela
's national anthem by President Antonio Guzmán Blanco
Antonio Guzmán Blanco
on May 25, 1881. The lyrics were written by the physician and journalist Vicente Salias in 1810. The music was later composed by musician Juan José Landaeta. It is said, however, that the melody has been known since 1840 as La Marsellesa Venezolana (Venezuelan Marseillaise), in reference to its subtle similarity to the French national anthem .

Some recent investigations have suggested that the real author of the anthem was Andrés Bello , and not Salias, to whom it was originally credited, and the music was composed by another musician called Lino Gallardo . However, this theory has yet to be proven, and lacks any real recognition among the general Venezuelan population, historians, or otherwise.
