Argentina has had many different types of Heads of State, as well as many different types of government throughout its history. During Pre-Columbian times the territories that nowadays belong to Argentina were mainly inhabited by nomadic tribes, without any defined government. During the Spanish colonization of the Americas, the King of Spain retained the ultimate authority over the territories conquered in the New World, but eventually temporary Viceroys were designated for local government. The Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata ousted Viceroy Baltasar Hidalgo de Cisneros during the 1810 May Revolution, and replaced him with a Junta, the so-called Primera Junta, that would turn itself into the Junta Grande in 1811 with the incorporation of provincial deputies. Acting on the name of King Ferdinand VII (taken prisoner by the Napoleonic French Empire), the Junta assumed legislative powers, delegating the administrative powers on a Triumvirate, which was to be soon followed by a second one.

In 1813 a Supreme National Assembly was elected, with constitutional and legislative mandates. It is commonly known as the Assembly of the Year XIII (Spanish: Asamblea del Año XIII) although it legislated until the Constitutional Assembly of 1816 known as the Congress of Tucumán, which officially declared Independence from Spain. In 1814, the Assembly had created a new executive authority, with atributions similar to that of a Head of State, called the Supreme Director of the United Provinces of the Río de la Plata. The office was to be occupied for fixed periods of time by Directors chosen by the Assembly, but proved in fact to be a very unstable office for most of the period, frequently subject to military mutinies or coups. In 1816, the Congress of Tucumán elected Juan Martín de Pueyrredón as Supreme Director so, after the July 9th Argentine Declaration of Independence, he would become the first Head of State of what was to become Argentina.

Pueyrredón had to quit office after the 1819 Constitution was enacted by the Congress (now assembled in Buenos Aires), due to the strong opposition from the Provinces and the Liga Federal to the centralist aspects of both the Directory system and the Constitution. In 1820, after the Federal forces defeated at Cepeda the last Director José Rondeau, the national organization had to wait until 1826 to experience a new, short-lived, attempt at establishing any central authority. On behalf of the Constitution of 1826, Bernardino Rivadavia was elected the first President of Argentina. Rivadavia and his Vice-President and succesor Vicente López y Planes both resigned shortly after, as the Constitution was again rejected.

After those experiences, the Argentine Provinces organized themselves as a loose confederation, without any central authority, in what was to be known as the Argentine Confederation. After 1835, when Governor Juan Manuel de Rosas began to exercise his hegemony well beyond his own Buenos Aires Province, his post was granted with the administration of the foreign relations of the Confederation as a whole. Rosas kept his office until the Battle of Caseros of 1852 paved the way for a new Constitutional Assembly. In 1853, the current Constitution of Argentina was promulgated and Justo José de Urquiza became the first President of modern Argentina, acting both as Head of Government and Head of State. However, the Buenos Aires Province had rejected the Constitution and became an independent State until the aftermath of the 1859 Battle of Cepeda, although the internecine conflict continued. Only after the subsequent Battle of Pavón, in 1861, the former bonaerense leader Bartolomé Mitre became the first President of a unified Argentine Republic.

The succession of constitutional Presidents run uninterrupted until the 1930 military coup d'état led by José Félix Uriburu, which in the lapse of a few months derived in the so-called Infamous Decade of patriotic fraud of the 1930s. Another military, nationalist, coup took place in 1943 against the previous governments, ending in 1946 with the democratic election of Juan Perón. Then again, a violent military coup deposed Perón in the so-called Revolución Libertadora of 1955, partially restoring civilian rule in 1958 but intervening again on the 1962 quiet coup.

Between 1966 and 1973, the authoritarian military government known as Revolución Argentina hold power, as it later did the National Reorganization Process Juntas of 1976-1983.

Since the election of Raúl Alfonsín in 1983, civilian governments regained rule and enjoyed an uninterrumped succession, according to the Constitutional provisions, until present.

Currently, the retrospective recognition as presidents or heads of state of any de facto ruler that exercised its authority outside the Constitutional mandate is a controversial and relevant issue in Argentine politics. [1][2][3]

The current Head of State of Argentina is President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who took office on 10th December, 2007 for a four-year term.


After Independence

After the May Revolution the viceroy was replaced in Buenos Aires by two Juntas, the Primera Junta and the Junta Grande. The difficulties of their big compositions were solved first by creating triumvirates and later a single head of state called Supreme Director. During the Argentine War of Independence there were conflicting authorities at the same time, the ones enacted by the revolution and the ones still loyal to Spain. The initial revolutionary governments employed a ruse known as Mask of Ferdinand VII to conceal their intentions under the appearance of loyalty to the removed king..[4][5][6] The Argentine Declaration of Independence took place on July 9, 1816.

After such independence, Argentina was a federation without an effective central government. In those years, it was first known as Provincias Unidas del Río de la Plata (United Provinces of the River Plate) and later as Provincias Unidas de Sud América (United Provinces of South America).

The defeat at the Battle of Huaqui generated a political crisis that led to the disband of the Junta Grande, which was replaced by a triumvirate. Thus, a government with many leaders was replaced by one with three leaders. Bernardino Rivadavia, despite being just secretary of war, was highly influential in the first triumvirate.[7]

The First Triumvirate was criticized for not having a strong commitment with the Argentine War of Independence. This led José de San Martín, Carlos María de Alvear and the Logia Lautaro to revolt against it, and promote instead a government with active support to independentism.

The first Presidential Government

After an unsuccessful attempt of establishing a constitution in 1819, a new constitution was established in 1826, the first one creating a figure of President for the executive power of the country. This constitution, however, was short-lived, mainly because of grave conflict with Brazil, which moved its first president to resignation and caused the dissolution of this executive position shortly after.

The Argentine Confederation

After the dissolution of the Presidential Government, Argentina was without an effective central government for another 28 years. By that time, the country began to be commonly known as Confederación Argentina (Argentine Confederation). The role that got nearer to that of a President was that of the Governor of the Province of Buenos Aires who got designated by the other Provinces as Chairman of Foreign Relations for the Confederation. The last Chairman of Foreign Relations, Juan Manuel de Rosas retained office for seventeen years, and was overthrown by his former General-in-Chief Justo José de Urquiza in 1852, which lead to a transitional period before the next presidential period began.

The Argentine Republic

The last Chairman of Foreign Relations, Justo José de Urquiza, organized a constitutional convention that composed the Constitution of 1853. This constitution resuscitated the figure of the President, and the presidents elected hereafter are often described as 'constitutional presidents', as they portray the presidential figure as described by the constitution that, through its amendments, is still effective in Argentina to this day.

In the Battle of Pavón, the rivalry between the Argentine Republic and the State of Buenos Aires was decided in favour of the latter entity, resulting in the dissolution of the national authorities of Argentina. The victor Governor of Buenos Aires, Bartolomé Mitre, acted as president then, and elections later ratified him in his charge, becoming then the first president of a united Argentina. It was by this time that the country became commonly known as República Argentina (Argentine Republic).

A new constitutional amendment in 1994 re-enabled presidential reelection (abolished in 1957), leading to a second term of the current president. The succeeding president, Fernando de la Rúa, resigned due to the Argentine economic crisis, leading to a line of interim presidents, concluding in the election of the current president as of 2007:
