Salvador Guillermo Allende Gossens (26 June 1908 – 11 September 1973) was a Chilean Marxist and Freemason, stated half-Jewish,[1] who was President of Chile between 1970 and 1973.

In 1973, amid a deepening crisis, the Supreme Court of Chile unanimously denounced the Allende government and the Chilean Congress declared that it violated the constitution, had "the goal of establishing a totalitarian system", and arguably asked the military to intervene. The military under Augusto Pinochet removed Allende in a coup, with debated involvement by the United States Central Intelligence Agency.
