Regarding José María Morelos y Pavón. José María Morelos y Pavón (September 30, 1765, Valladolid, now Morelia, Michoacán – December 22, 1815, San Cristóbal Ecatepec, México State) was a Catholic priest and revolutionary leader who led the Mexican War of Independence movement, assuming its leadership after the execution of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in 1811. He was captured by the Spanish royalist military, tried by the Inquisition, defrocked as a cleric, and executed by civil authorities for treason in 1815.
When others attempted to address him by titles such as "Your Excellency", he refused them and insisted on being called the "Servant of the Nation" (Siervo de la Nación).
