Biography[ edit ] Federico Krutwig was born on 15 May in Getxo , the son of a bourgeois family of German origin. He taught himself the Basque language. He joined the Basque-Language Academy in , where he favoured the standardisation of Basque around the Labourdine dialect of the first printed books in Basque, and with an etymological orthography. However, the Academy preferred the Guipuscoan dialect as the basis of Standard Basque.

In , after rejecting Luis Villasante joining the Basque-Language Academy , and after his criticisms of the position of the Catholic Church in reference to the Basque language, he went into exile in France. Once in Donibane-Lohitzune he contacted members of the movement Jagi-Jagi.
