Bernardo Prudencio Berro (April 28, 1803 – February 19, 1868) was the President of Uruguay from 1860 to 1864.


Berro was a member of the National (Blanco) Party. He served as the President of the Senate of Uruguay in 1852, and from 1858 to 1859.[1]

President of Uruguay (first, provisional term)

Berro first served as head of state of Uruguay in a provisional government for several weeks in 1852, during a brief period in which the National Party came to power.

President of Uruguay (second term)

He led the National Party's return to power in 1860 and made attempts to unite the country's political factions, efforts not seldom opposed by members of his own Party and Government.


Berro and former president Venancio Flores were both assassinated on February 19, 1868.[2]
