Here is a list all the presidents / dictators Venezuela has had in chronilogical order. If you want more information on a president click on their foto or their name and the link will take you to Wikipedia.com. I rather work on other more interesting information than the bio of each president, that's what Wikipedia is for. All though later on I will write articles on a particular President or Dictator that is mostly remembered by historians and the general population for the diference they have made in Venezuelan history for the better or worse. - James
