Francisco I. Madero

Francisco Ignacio Madero González was a Mexican revolutionary and statesman who served as the 33rd president of Mexico from 1911 until shortly before his assassination in 1913. A wealthy landowner, he was nonetheless an advocate for social democracy. Madero was notable for challenging long-time Mexican President Porfirio Díaz for the presidency in 1910 and being instrumental in sparking the Mexican Revolution. Born into an wealthy family in Coahuila, northern Mexico, Madero was an unusual politician, who until he ran for president in the 1910 elections, had never held office. In his 1908 book entitled The Presidential Succession in 1910, Madero called on voters to prevent the sixth reelection of Porfirio Díaz, which Madero considered anti-democratic, his vision would lay the foundation for a democratic, twentieth-century Mexico, but without polarizing the social classes. To that effect, he bankrolled the opposition Anti-Reelectionist Party and urged Mexicans to oust Díaz in the 1910 election.

Madero's candidacy against Díaz garnered widespread support in Mexico. He was possessed of independent financial means, ideological determination, the bravery to oppose Díaz when it was dangerous to do so. Díaz had Madero arrested before the elections, which were seen as fraudulent. Madero issued the Plan of San Luis Potosí from the United States. For the first time, he called for an armed uprising against the illegitimately-elected Díaz, outlined a program of reform; the armed phase of the Mexican Revolution dates to his plan. Uprisings in Morelos under Emiliano Zapata and in Mexico's north by Pascual Orozco, Pancho Villa and others and the inability of Mexican Federal Army to suppress them forced Díaz's resignation on 25 May 1911, after the signing of the Treaty of Ciudad Juárez, Madero was enormously popular among many sectors, but he did not assume the presidency. An interim president was installed and elections were scheduled for fall 1911. Madero was elected president on 15 October 1911 by 90% of the vote.

Sworn into office on 6 November 1911, he became one of Mexico's youngest elected presidents, having just turned 38. Madero's administration soon encountered opposition both from more radical revolutionaries and from conservatives, he did not move on land reform, a key demand of many of his supporters. Former supporters Emiliano Zapata declared himself in rebellion against Madero in the Plan of Ayala as Pascual Orozco did in his Plan Orozquista; these were significant challenges to Madero's presidency. Labor became disillusioned by his moderate policies. Foreign entrepreneurs were concerned that Madero was unable to maintain political stability that would keep their investments safe. Foreign governments were concerned that a destabilized Mexico would threaten the international order. In February 1913, a military coup took place in the Mexican capital led by General Victoriano Huerta, the military commander of the city, supported by the United States ambassador. Madero was arrested and a short time assassinated along with his Vice-President, José María Pino Suárez, on 22 February 1913, following the series of events known as the Ten Tragic Days.

In death, Madero became a unifying force of disparate elements in Mexico opposed to the regime of Huerta. In the north, governor of Coahuila Venustiano Carranza led what became the Constitutionalist Army against Huerta, while Zapata continued in his rebellion under the Plan of Ayala. Once Huerta was ousted in July 1914, the opposition coalition held together by Madero's memory dissolved and Mexico entered a new stage of civil war. Madero was born in the hacienda of El Rosario, in Parras de la Fuente, the first son of Francisco Ignacio Madero Hernández and Mercedes González Treviño, the first grandson of family patriarch, Evaristo Madero, governor of Coahuila, he was sickly as a child, was small in stature as an adult. It is believed that Madero's middle initial, I, stood for Indalecio, but according to his birth certificate it stood for Ignacio, his family has been described as one of the five wealthiest families in Mexico. His grandfather, Evaristo Madero, began as a founder of a regional carting business, but he took advantage of economic opportunity and transported cotton from the Confederate states to Mexican ports during the U.

S. Civil War. Having built a diversified fortune, but before his real success, Evaristo first married Rafaela Hernández Lombraña, half-sister of the powerful miner and banker Antonio V. Hernández. Alongside his brother-in-law, other of his new political family's relations, he founded the Compañía Industrial de Parras involved in commercial vineyards and textiles, also in mining, cotton mills, banking, guayule rubber, foundries in the part of the nineteenth century. For many years, the family prospered during Porfirio Díaz's regime, by 1910 the family was one of the richest in Mexico, worth 30 million pesos. Much of this wealth arose from the diversification of Madero lands during the 1890s into the production of guayule rubber plants. After the death of his first wife, having built his success, Evaristo Madero remarried to Doña Manuela de Farías Benavides, member of one of northern Mexico's most aristocratic families, daughter of Don Juan Francisco de Farías, mayor of Laredo. Evaristo Madero served as governor of Coahuila from 1880 to 1884, during the four-year interregnum of Porfirio Díaz's rule.

Afterwards, Evaristo was permanently sidelined from political office when Díaz returned to the presidency
