Alfonso Cavallero was a Spanish lieutenant who served under the Inquisition captain Diego de Burgos during the 15th century.

In 1489, Diego gave Alfonso a painting that was part of a set created by Leonardo da Vinci. The collection originally belonged to the Spanish Thieves' Guild, but had been unintentionally gambled away when their business associate Jaime del Rada lost a game of cards to Diego. An art aficionado, Alfonso could not resist the painting's quality or potential status it offered him for owning a unique da Vinci work. Hoping to display it later, he kept it in his villa in Toledo until it was later recovered by the Spanish Brotherhood of Assassins.[1]
