The Mexican Revolution (Spanish: Revolucin Mexicana) was a major armed struggle, c.19101920, that radically transformed Mexican culture and government. Although recent research has focused on local and regional aspects of the Revolution, it was a "genuinely national revolution".[4] Its outbreak in 1910 resulted from the failure of the 35-year-long regime of Porfirio Daz to find a managed solution to the presidential succession. This meant there was a political crisis among competing elites and the opportunity for agrarian insurrection.[5] Wealthy landowner Francisco I. Madero challenged Daz in the 1910 presidential election, and following the rigged results, revolted under the Plan of San Luis Potos.[6] Armed conflict ousted Daz from power and a new election was held in 1911, bringing Madero to the presidency.

The origins of the conflict were broadly based in opposition to the Daz regime, with the 1910 election becoming the catalyst for the outbreak of political rebellion. Begun by elements of the Mexican elite hostile to Daz, led by Madero and Pancho Villa, the revolution expanded to the middle class, the peasantry in some regions, and organized labor.[7] In October 1911, Madero was overwhelmingly elected in a free and fair election. Opposition to the Madero regime increased from both the conservatives, who saw him as too weak and too liberal, and from former revolutionary fighters and the dispossessed, who saw him as too conservative.
