Emperor Maximillian (not a Frenchman, but a member of the Austro-Hungarian Hapsburg dynasty) was installed by the French as supreme ruler in Mexico after the French were (temporarily) defeated at Puebla on this date, 1863. Benito Juarez was forced into exile in New Orleans by subsequent French victories after Puebla. From there, Juarez orchestrated Maximillian´s eventual overthrow and execution in 1866.

Mexico was invaded twice by the USA during the 1910-17 Mexican Revolution, first occupying Mexico City in 1914. Then, in 1916, "Black Jack" Pershing invaded Mexico in an unsuccessful pursuit of Pancho Villa.
