Flavio Eloy Alfaro

Alfaro, Flavio Eloy (fläˈvyō āloiˈ älfäˈrō) [key], 1867–1912, president of Ecuador (1897–1901, 1907–11). Regarded as a champion of liberalism, Alfaro introduced legal and economic reforms that largely undid the clerical privileges granted by Gabriel García Moreno. Exiled by the opposition, he returned to lead a revolt but was defeated, imprisoned, and murdered by an angry mob.
