Zenón Noriega Agüero (July 12 1900 – May 7 1957) was a Peruvian army general who formally was president of a military Junta for two months in 1950.


Noriega was born in Cajamarca in 1900 as the son of Wenceslao Noriega and María del Carmen Agüero. He served as Manuel A. Odría's deputy since Odría took power in a military coup in 1948. On June 1, 1950, Odría formally stepped down as president in order to pursue his candidacy in a presidential election in which he would be the only candidate. Noriega became president of the Junta until July 28, when Odría resumed power. Political historians concede that Noriega did not rule on his own, but followed Odría's commands. He was immediately appointed Prime Minister by Odría, and served in that position until August 1954.

In 1955, Noriega planned a coup d'état to replace Odría, but the plan was foiled. Noriega was imprisoned and died in 1957.
