12 October, 1868


Mariano Trias, considered as the first de facto vice president of the Philippine Revolutionary Government, was born in Cavite. One of the bravest generals of the Katipunan, Trias was also among the leading patriots and defenders of Cavite against the oppressive Spanish regime in the Philippines. He was the founder of the Nacionalista Party chapter in Cavite and was acting governor of the province when he died of appendectomy at the Philippine General Hospital on February 22, 1914.

He was buried in Manila, but his remains were transferred to his hometown in 1923. The present Cavite town of General Trias, formerly San Francisco de Malabon, was renamed after him by virtue of Act No. 2880.
