Agustín de Iturbide

Iturbide, Agustín de (1783–1824), Mexican revolutionary and emperor of Mexico (1822–23). As a royalist officer, he united the revolutionaries with his Plan of Iguala (1821), which proclaimed Mexican independence. Exploiting political divisions, he became emperor of independent Mexico. But opposition to his capricious rule brought abdication, exile, and (on his return) execution.
