The Top Ten

1 Emilio Aguinaldo Emilio Aguinaldo Emilio F. Aguinaldo (March 22, 1869 – February 6, 1964) was a Filipino revolutionary, politician, and a military leader who is officially recognized as the first and the youngest President of the Philippines and first president of a constitutional republic in Asia.

Popularity may have voted for Antonio Luna but Emilio did a better job on the field than Luna that's why he had my vote.

His achievement as a general was discredited and underrated, by most of the millennial generation and bias historians. "probobly then don't like the guy" yet history records show he is more capable than any revolutionary leaders ever emerge. He fought and led many battle which he give a victorious result for the Katipunan and the people. He was admired by most of the filipinos during those time.

Whatever they want to say to him they can't argue how successful of a general Emilio Aguinaldo was.

A great GENERAL

Pity he died early what a genius man he was.

He could had been the president!

He could had been the first president pity he died in battle against the Spanish. He was responsible of the construction of trenches and an adviser interm of firearm combat that lead to the victories of the revolitionaries. - Orion101

6 Antonio Luna Antonio Luna

His heroism was over rated.

He should be number 1 not agui..

Antonio Luna, was considered to be the most famous & infamous general during the Philippine-American war,.. Intelligent, highly skilled as a marksman and had a formal military education in Europe he became the Commanding in Chief of the Army. He was aggresive in a way that he got praised by the enemy...despite the acknowlegdement he was yet to taste a significant victory in battle against the Americans. Then he was killed / mudered / assasssinated whatever fits the description during his visit in Cabanatuan. - Orion101

Under his leadership he defeated and killed famous US general Henry Ware Lawton (the general reponsible the capture of famous Native Indian "Geronimo" ) was shot by a Filipino sharpshooter Mariano at the battle of Paye. - Orion101

9 Tomas Mascardo Tomas Mascardo

As much as the movie "Heneral Luna" portray him as cowardly tempered man who hated general Luna. Yet in reality he was a war hero notably during the 1897 battle of Zapote Bridge that ended a Filipino victory against Spain and he was fataly wounded during that firefight. - Orion101

10 Jose Ignacio Paua

Chinese blood ~ he was also controversial, but this guy is a one man army he leads and fought his enemies even in a hand to hand combat was promoted within a short period of time. Fought many battles from Spanish to the Americans. - Orion101
