Miguel Barbachano Biography
Miguel Barbachano y Tarrazo (1806 - 17 December 1859) was a liberal Yucatecan politician, who was 5 times governor of Yucatán between 1841 and 1853.

Miguel Barbachano was born in Campeche.

He was one of the staunchest advocates for the independence of Yucatán from Mexico, but historical circumstances led to Yucatán twice declaring it's independence while Barbachano was out of power, and twice Barbachano arranged for Yucatán's reunification with Mexico.

He generally alternated in power with centerist Santiago Méndez, who was more in favor of union with Mexico but was driven to declare independence by the excesses of Mexican dictator Antonio López de Santa Anna.

The final reunification was due to the crisis of the Caste War of Yucatán.

Miguel Barbachano's terms as Governor of Yucatán were:

11 June 1841 to 13 October 1841
18 August 1842 to 14 November 1843
15 May 1844 to 2 June 1844
1 January 1846 to 21 January 1847
26 March 1848 to 13 February 1853
