Ricardo Leoncio Elías Arias
Ricardo Leoncio Elías Arias (1874 - 1951) was a Peruvian soldier and politician who briefly occupied the Presidency of Peru between March 1 and March 5, 1931.
He organized one of the various movements that caused the fall of president Augusto B. Leguía. After General Luis Miguel Sánchez Cerro was named provisional president, Elías was not satisfied and soon moved against him. In March 1931, Sánchez Cerro left the presidency to his vice president Olguín, who was soon deposed and Elías occupied the presidency. He himself, however, was deposed by Gustavo Jiménez only four days later. He remained in the new government as President of the Supreme Court until 1932.
