Magdalo (Katipunan faction)
The Magdalo had a rivalry with the other Katipunan chapter in Cavite, the Magdiwang. When the Manila-based Katipunan leader Andres Bonifacio went to Cavite to mediate between them, the Magdalo argued for the replacement of the Katipunan by a revolutionary government.:90 The Magdiwang initially backed Bonifacio's stance that the Katipunan already served as their government, but at the Tejeros Convention, both factions were combined into one government body under Emilio Aguinaldo.
The majority, if not all, of the civil and military officials of the First Philippine Republic came from this group.
