Rogelio Miranda Valdivia was a Bolivian general. He was also Bolivia Ambassador to the United Kingdom (1974–1978).

In 1970, Miranda lead a military coup against president Ovando, subsequently declaring himself as president over the junta that he was planning on installing. However, the revolt not long after by the troops under General Torres led to a merging of the two groups and the instatement of Torres as president instead.[1]
