Barra y Quijano (June 16, 1863 – September 23, 1939) was a Mexican political figure and diplomat who served as interim President of Mexico from May 25 to November 6, 1911. León de la Barra colluded with U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Henry Lane Wilson to oust democratically elected President Madero from the presidency. During the "Ten Tragic Days" of February 1913, Madero resigned and was then murdered. General Victoriano Huerta assumed power and León de la Barra served again as foreign secretary from February 11, 1913 to July 4, 1914 in Huerta's government. He was elected Governor of the State of Mexico in 1914, but he soon resigned to pursue a career in international law in Europe. He died in Biarritz on September 23, 1939, without ever returning to Mexico. (adapted from Wikipedia)
