DOBLAD0, Manuel (doblah'do ), Mexican statesman, born in Guanajuato, 15 June 1SIS; died 22 April 1864. He studied in the College of San Ignacio in Guanajuato and that of San Ildefonso of the City of Mexico, where he was admitted to the bar in 1846, and joined the liberal party. With Zarco and Ignacio Ranfirez He wrote for the journal " E1 Siglo XIX" against the government of Santa Anna, for which he suffered bitter persecution. At the entry of the American troops into the capital in September 1847, he was taken prisoner while firing from a roof upon the invaders.
In 1850 he retired to Guanajuato, and devoted himself to his profession till 1858, when General Juan Alvarez initiated the revolution consequent on the plan of Ayutla. He joined at Acapulco the headquarters of the revolutionary chief, and remained with him as privy counselor until the triumph of the revolution in 1855. The newly elected president, Comonfort, appointed him minister of foreign affairs, in which office he displayed diplomatic ability, and through his mediation some difficulties with the government of the United States were arranged satisfactorily, and the existing government, proclaimed by the plan of Ayutla, was recognized by France and Spain. Toward the end of 1856; he resigned his seat in the cabinet, as he had been elected deputy to the famous congress of 1857, and as such he signed the constitution of that year, which was based upon that of the United States of America. When Comonfort in 1857 Cave himself entirely into the hands of the reactionary or Church party, Doblado was one of the first to suffer persecution; but with Juarez and Lerdo de Fejada, of the liberal group, he worked incessantly to reestablish the constitution of 1857, and was one of the deputies that proposed the famous reform laws, which comprised the confiscation of Church property, suppression of religious orders, civil marriaa'e, and other republican principles.
After the victory of the liberal party in the battle of Calpulalpan, Doblado was elected governor of Guanajuato in 1859, and occupied this place until the difficulties between Mexico and Spain, England, and France arose, which led to the tripartite intervention, when he hastened to offer his services to President Juarez. After the landing of the allied forces at Vera Cruz, 8 December, 186l, Juarez appointed Doblado and invested him with extraordinary powers to meet the commanders, and try to arrange the existing differences. At Solelad, Doblade encountered the advance guard of the allied army and arranged a treaty that led to the evacuation of Mexico by the English and Spanish forces in April 1862. After the declaration of war by Napoleon III., and the invasion of the capital of Mexico by the French forces in 1863, Doblado followed Juarez and the cabinet to the interior, and fell a victim to malignant fever two days before the party reached the City of Zacatecas.
