Magdiwang (Katipunan faction)

Flag of the Magdiwang faction led by "Andres Bonifacio".

The Magdiwang was a chapter of the [1]:22

The Magdiwang chapter was started by Mariano Álvarez, related by marriage to Andrés Bonifacio, the leader of the Katipunan. Both the Magdiwang and the Magdalo (led by Baldemero Aguinaldo the cousin of Emilio Aguinaldo the famous leader of Magdalo) were the two major Katipunan factions in Cavite, with the Magdiwang having control over a larger number of towns and municipalities.

When rivalry grew between the two factions, Bonifacio was invited to mediate, but he was quickly embroiled in discussions with the Magdalo, who wished to replace the Katipunan with an insurgent government.[1]:90 The Magdiwang initially backed Bonifacio's stance that the Katipunan already served as their government, but at the Tejeros Convention, both factions were combined into one government body under Aguinaldo.
