- Rider(s):Bonifacio, Andrés
(1863 –1897) was a Filipino nationalist and revolutionary. He is often called “the father of the Philippine Revolution”. He was a founder and later Supremo (“supreme leader”) of the Katipunan movement which sought the independence of the Philippines from Spanish colonial rule and started the Philippine Revolution. He is considered a de facto national hero of the Philippines, and is also considered by some Filipino historians to be the first President, but officially he is not recognized as such.
