GOMEZ-PEDRAZA, Manuel, Mexican states-mail, born in Soto la Marina (according to others, in Queretaro) in 1789: died in the City of Mexico, 14 May, 1851. He was educated in Queretaro, entered the militia, and at the beginning of the revolution of 1810 remained faithful to the royalists. When Hurbide proclaimed the empire in 1822, Gomez sided with him, and became commander of the City of Mexico. He surrendered the City to the republican authorities, and in 1825 was appointed by President Victoria secretary of war. He became president in 1828, defeating the ultra liberal party under Guerrero, and the latter, complaining of fraud in the elections, appealed to arms. Gomez fled to Europe on 4 December and returned in 1830, but General Bustamente ordered him to leave the country immediately, and he went to the United States, fixing his residence in Pennsylvania. He was afterward recalled, and was president again in 1832-'3. In 1841 he was minister of state under the second administration of Santa-Anna, and in 1842, 1844, and 1845 was deputy to congress, where he acquired fame as an orator. In 1850 he was again a candidate for the presidency, but was defeated, and died as a director of the government bank of loans.
