Rodolfo Fierro 1880-1915

 

Rodolfo Fierro 1880-1915

 


Rodolfo Fierro was a general in
Pancho Villa's army, the Division del Norte, during the Mexican Revolution.

 

Reckless but loyal Rodolfo joined the revolution in September 1913. He became Pancho's executioner and was nicknamed The Butcher.

Unlike Pancho Villa, Rodolfo Fierro could appreciate himself a bit of booze.

 

Check Rodolfo's entry in the timeline of the Mexican Revolution.
