Alejandro Manuel Sinibaldi Castro (1825–1896) was acting President of Guatemala from April 2, 1885 to April 5, 1885.
From part Italian descent, he was a rich businessman who Was "First Designate to the Presidency", the equivalent of Vice-President in the time of Justo Rufino Barrios. When Barrios was killed on April 2, 1885 in El Salvador, Sinibaldi Castro became acting president. However, given that Sinibaldi Castro had no political connections and was not in the military, he was pressured to resign within days of taking over. His successor was general Manuel Lisandro Barillas, who served as acting president but never called for elections in the stipulated time, and when he eventually did, he was elected as Constitutional President.
