Agustín Cosme Damián de Iturbide y Arámburu (27 September 1783

  1. REDIRECT

{{#invoke:Redirect template|main}}19 July 1824), also known as Augustine of Mexico, was a Mexican army general and politician. During the Mexican War of Independence, he built a successful political and military coalition that took control in Mexico City on 27 September 1821, decisively gaining independence for Mexico. After the secession of Mexico was secured, he was proclaimed President of the Regency in 1821. A year later, he was announced as the Constitutional Emperor of Mexico, reigning briefly from 19 May 1822 to 19 March 1823. He is credited as the original designer of the first Mexican flag.<ref name="Vazquez">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref><ref name="Kirkwood">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref><ref name="Alvaro">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=news }}</ref>

Although Iturbide's reign was short, it defined the political struggles before and after independence. The two ends of Mexico's political spectrum, liberals who favored populist representative government and conservatives who favored a more authoritarian regime, would each gain the upper hand at various times in the decades after Iturbide's abdication.
