There is considerable dispute as to Poe's citizenship, because of his intention to run for Philippine Presidency. His parents married on 16 September 1940, more than a year after Poe's birth, and his father and grandfather were Spaniards and mother an American. But all children of Philippine fathers are considered citizens, and a 1902 act required by the Treaty of Paris and passed by the Americans made all Spaniard Filipinos citizens unless they specifically disclaimed such. There is no evidence that Poe's grandfather, Lorenzo Poe, did this. Incidentally, the first wife of Poe's father, Paulita Gomez, filed bigamy charges against the elder Poe after his marriage to Bessie.
