Supremo (Supreme Leader) of Philippines Assassin's Order First President of Tagalog Republic
Andrés Bonifacio y de Castro (November 30, 1863 – May 10, 1897) was a Filipino nationalist, revolutionary leader, and the first president of the Philippine archipelago. He preferred naming the Tagalog Republic instead of the Philippines because its origin was derived from the Spaniards. He is often called "the Father of the Philippine Revolution and Filipino Nation". He was a founder of the new Assassin's Order and later Supremo ("supreme leader") of the Kataas-taasan, Kagalang-galangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan or simply and more popularly called Katipunan, a movement which sought the independence of the Philippines from Spanish colonial rule (Templars) and started the Philippine Revolution.
