The result of an incestuous relationship, he is born with the tail of a pig, fulfilling his great-great-great-great-grandmother Úrsula Iguarán's hereditary fear. Although his mother Amaranta Úrsula originally wants to name him Rodrigo, her nephew/his father Aureliano (II) names him after Colonel Aureliano.

However, Little Aureliano (III) fulfills another prophecy and is the last in the Buendía line.
