Francisco Ignacio Madero González was the 33rd President of México from 1911 to 1913. He was born in Parras de la Fuente, Coahuila in October 30, 1873 and he died executed by the Porfirista military and his traitorous aides, which he neglected to replace with revolutionary supporters in February 22, 1913.

Madero was a respectable upper-class politician, he supplied a center around which opposition to the dictatorship of Porfirio Díaz could coalesce. His assassination was followed by the most violent period of the revolution in Mexico (1913–1917) until the Constitution of 1917 and revolutionary president Venustiano Carranza achieved some degree of stability. Followers of Madero were known as Maderistas.
