Mariano Herencia Zevallos

Mariano Herencia Zevallos was a Peruvian Army colonel and politician who briefly assumed the Presidency of Peru in 1872, following the murder of President Jose Balta.

The next day, control was transferred to Balta's first Vice President, Mariano Herencia Zevallos, in accordance with the 1860 constitution. Zevallos completed the last week of Balta's term in office and handed power over to his elected successor, Manuel Pardo.

Zevallos was assassinated on February 2, 1873.
