François Denys Légitime (November 20, 1841 – July 29, 1935

François Denys Légitime (November 20, 1841 – July 29, 1935) was a Haitian general who served as President of Haiti from 1888 to 1889.

Légitime was born in Jérémie, Haiti, on 20 November 1841[1] to Denys Légitime and Tinette Lespérance.[2] Légitime married Rose-Marie Isaure Marion and had nine children: Cuvier, Edmond, Angèle, Antoinette, Denis Jr., Léon, Clemence, Marie, and Agnès.[2]

He served as adjutant general during the government of Fabre Geffrard, and as aide-de-camp during the government of Sylvain Salnave.[2] He was Secretary of State of the Interior and then Secretary of State of the Interior and of Agriculture during the government of Lysius Salomon.[2] During this administration, Légitime was accused of aspiring to the presidency, and accordingly went to Kingston, Jamaica, remaining three years.[3] He then returned to Haiti at the invitation of his followers, and on October 7, 1888 was elected president of the provisional government.[3] General Seide Thelemaque denounced the election as fraudulent and attempted to make himself President, but he was killed in the battle which ensued.[3] Légitime was elected President of Haiti on December 16, 1888, but resigned in 1889, owing to the opposition of General Florvil Hyppolite, and again retired to Jamaica.[3] In 1896 President Tiresias Simon Sam granted a general amnesty, and Légitime returned to Haiti.[3] He died on July 29, 1935[4] in Port-au-Prince.
