Ernesto Guevara (1928-1967), better known by his nickname ''"Che"'', [[note]] An informal Argentinian interjection equivalent to "hey", used to call other's people attention. His Cuban friends heard him use it a lot and the name stuck. So "Che Guevara" is basically "Hey, Guevara". [[/note]] was an [[{{UsefulNotes/Argentina}} Argentinian]] [[Creator/KarlMarx Marxist]] revolutionary who attained fame for his active role as a guerrilla leader and strategist in the Cuban Revolution (in which he helped UsefulNotes/FidelCastro to seize power from the United States-backed dictator Fulgencio Batista) and then later, his death in Bolivia, where he was arrested and executed by the Bolivian military with the aid of the CIA. He also ran Castro's most infamous prison, La Cabana, and oversaw Revolutionary Tribunals and summary executions. After that he worked as a government bureaucrat and took a lead in introducing literacy measures. Eventually he became restless and decided to engage in revolutionary causes again. He later took part in the Congo revolution, but it wasn't successful. Then he conducted a complicated scheme in Bolivia that eventually led to his capture and execution.
