A Mexican general of the early 19th century who stole from the rich to give to the poor. He was hated by rich Mexicans and most Americans, but was considered a role model by middle class and lower class Mexicans. He worked with another general named Emiliano Zapata who was equally praised. He once had some problems with the U.S. government and went into a town in Texas where he killed 7 Americans to prove his point. He was never found by the American Government. He is like a Mexican version of Robin Hood. Since then any Mexicans named Francisco(such as myself) were nicknamed "Pancho" to commemorate him.
It is in your high school history text books, morons.
Jose: Man, you are so lucky to have been named Francisco. General Francisco "Pancho" Villa was such a badass.
Francisco: I know man. I am loving every minute of it.
