The Emperor of Mexico (Spanish: 'Emperador de México') was the head of state and ruler of Mexico on two non-consecutive occasions in the 19th century.

With the Declaration of Independence of the Mexican Empire from Spain in 1821, Mexico became an independent monarchy-the First Mexican Empire (1822 � 1823). The monarchy was soon replaced by the First Republic of Mexico. In turn, Mexico reverted back into a monarchy in the 1860s, during the Second Mexican Empire (1864 � 1867).
