NOBOA, Diego, South American statesman, born in Guayaquil in 1789; died there, 3 November, 1870. He studied law in Quito and afterward returned to Guayaquil, where he took part in the revolution of 9 October, 1820. The government appointed him treasurer of the province, which post he retained when the latter was incorporated with Colombia as a department. In 1827 he was elected intendant of Guayaquil, to oppose the dictatorship of Simon Bolivar, but, when the reaction in favor of the latter took place a few months afterward, Noboa was obliged to go into exile. He returned in 1830, when Ecuador was declared an independent republic, and was appointed minister to Peru. Afterward he was elected senator of the republic, and later, by popular vote, member of the provisional government that was established in consequence of the revolution of 6 March, 1845, against General Flores. In 1850 he was elected supreme chief of the republic, and afterward the national convention at Quito appointed him constitutional president of Ecuador. On 17 July, 1851, a military revolution overthrew his government and obliged him to go to Central America and Peru. In 1856 he returned to Guayaquil, where he died in retirement.
