Adriano Dayot Hernandez (September 8, 1870 – February 16, 1925), was a Filipino revolutionary, patriot and military strategist during the Philippine Revolution and the Philippine-American War.

Early life[edit]

Hernandez was a Spanish mestizo who studied at the Dingle Catholic School in Dingle, Iloilo and later at the Ateneo Municipal in Manila.[1]

Military career[edit]

During the Philippine Revolution, Hernandez organized a revolutionary movement in Iloilo against the Spanish colonial authorities. He would figure as a leader of the "Cry of Lincud" along with Julio Hernandez and Nicolas Roces, on October 28, 1898 at Barrio Lincud in Dingle. This event is known today as the first armed uprising for independence in the province of Iloilo. He then became an aide to General Martin Delgado because of his knowledge in military strategy.[2] He was designated Chief of Staff of the revolutionary government in the Visayas in November 1898 and represented the province of Iloilo at the Malolos Congress. During the Philippine-American War, Hernandez led the guerilla movement in the province, but was forced to surrender.

Post-war life[edit]

Hernandez became a member of the first Philippine Assembly in 1907. In 1912, he was elected provincial governor of Iloilo, under the banner of the Nacionalista Party. Hernandez, who was a practicing farmer, earned the distinction of becoming the first Filipino director of the Bureau of Agriculture in 1916, which had been headed by Americans before his tenure.[3]
