This is Doroteo Arango later known as Pancho Villa. He was born as the oldest son in a poor peasant family in Mexico.
When Pancho was 16, he shot his hacienda owner when he found him trying to rape his sister. He ran off to the mountains shortly after.

In October 1910, Villa joined forces with Francisco Madero, who promised change for the lower classes. He agreed to lead Madero's revolutionary army.
