Pipiolos was the name used to refer to Chilean upper class liberals in early 19th century. The name Pipiolo was originally used by the Pelucones or conservatives in a despective maner by associating the liberals to inexperience. In the Chilean Civil War of 1829 the Pipiolos led by Ramón Freire were defeated and the Pelucones could triumphantly enforce the Chilean Constitution of 1833 which led to creation of a strong unitarian and authoritarian presidentialist system held up by upper-class democracy.
