Dr. Francisco Bertrand, President of Honduras

Francisco Bertrand (1866–1926) was twice President of Honduras, first from March 28, 1911 to February 1, 1912, and then again between March 21, 1913 and September 9, 1919.

His successor and predecessor was Manuel Bonilla.

Bertrand started out with a reputation as a conciliator, but during his last presidency was involved in armed conflict with his political opponents.

It is believed that United States of America pressure was behind his abandoning the post of President. He spent the next few years in exile before returning to La Ceiba, Honduras to die in July 1926.
