Juan Velasco Alvarado

Juan Francisco Velasco Alvarado was a left-leaning Peruvian General who ruled Peru from 1968 to 1975 under the title of "President of the Revolutionary Government."

Velasco was born on June 16, 1910 in Piura, a city on Peru's north coast. He was the son of Manuel Jose Velasco and Clara Luz Alvarado. One of 11 children of a minor civil servant, he described his youth as one of "dignified poverty." He was married to Consuelo Gonzales Arriola.
