Pedro José Domingo de la Calzada Manuel María Lascuráin Paredes (8 May 1856[1] – 21 July 1952) was a Mexican politician who served as the 34th President of Mexico for less than one hour on February 19, 1913, the shortest presidency in the history of the world. He had earlier served as Mexico's foreign minister for two terms and was the director of a small law school in Mexico City for sixteen years.

Early career[edit]
Lascuráin received a law degree in 1880 from the Escuela Nacional de Jurisprudencia in Mexico City. He was mayor of Mexico City in 1910 when Madero began his antireelectionist campaign against Díaz. Lascuráin was a supporter of Madero and after Madero was elected president to replace Díaz, Lascuráin served twice as foreign secretary in Madero's cabinet (10 April 1912 to 4 December 1912 and 15 January 1913 to 19 February 1913). In between the two terms, he again became mayor of Mexico City. As foreign minister, he had to deal with the demands of U.S. Ambassador Henry Lane Wilson.

Or how about the Anglo-Zanzibar War that lasted for 38 minutes and the British lost nobody and only one wounded because he dropped a canon ball on his foot.

Just read up on it, it appears he was president for less than an hour in order for Victoriano Huerta to perform a coup d'etat and become president himself. Good to know.

Fun Fact!

King Cnut was in fact king of England, while also being a Viking invader from Scandinavia. He was deeply religous, and the famous event which you describe took place after someone else declared him powerful enough to control the tides. Cnut went to the beach and commanded the tides to obey him. When they didn't, he declared that only God had such power.
