From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Francisco Jiménez[1] was a colonial Nahua noble from Tecamachalco. He served as judge-governor of Tenochtitlan for a year and five months in 1568 and 1569, and was the first outsider to govern Tenochtitlan.[2]

Despite being a noble, the use of the honorific don with his name is inconsistent.[3]
