Members of the firing squad who executed Emperor Maximilian I of Mexico with his generals Miguel Miramon and Tomas Mejia, 19 June 1857. Maximilian (1832-1967) was born Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian Joseph of Austria and was proclaimed Emperor of Mexico on 10 April 1864 with the backing of Napoleon III of France. Few foreign governments recognised his regime, which was also the case with Mexican liberals. The ensuing conflict ended with the Emperor's execution. Photograph.
