Manuel Dorrego.jpg

Manuel Dorrego (11 June 1787 – 1828) was an Argentine statesman and soldier. He was governor of Buenos Aires in 1820, and then again from 1827 to 1828.

Dorrego stepped into the political void created after the resignation of the first President of Argentina, the liberal Bernardino Rivadavia. Dorrego was a firm supporter of Federalism, and this consequently led to his execution at the hands of Juan Lavalle. The conservative caudillo Juan Manuel de Rosas became his federalist successor, and ruled Argentina from 1829 to 1852.

He was buried in La Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires.
