Ramón Arturo Cáceres Vasquez (15 December 1866, Moca, Dominican Republic – 19 November 1911, Santo Domingo) was the 31st president of the Dominican Republic (1906–1911). Serving as vice president under Carlos Felipe Morales, Cáceres assumed the office in 1906. Cáceres was assassinated in 1911, ambushed by rebels and killed in his car.[1]

Cáceres was the leader of the Los Coludos, also named Red Party.[2]

His death was followed by a civil war and, ultimately, by the U.S. occupation of the Dominican Republic in 1916.[3][4]
