Francisco de Aguirre was a Spanish conquistador who participated in the conquest of Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina.
When Valdivia died in the Battle of Tucapel, his will was opened and found to designate Aguirre in the absence of Jeronimo de Alderete. When he received the news, he was in Tucuman, and Francisco de Villagra had already managed to be acknowledged as governor, due to the death of Alderete and the absence of Aguirre.
