This article is about the Katipunan political faction. For other uses, see Magdalo.

The Magdalo faction of the Katipunan was a chapter in Cavite, mostly led by ilustrados of that province.

It was named after Mary Magdalene. It was officially led by Baldomero Aguinaldo, but his cousin Emilio Aguinaldo (whose own Katipunan codename was "Magdalo") was its most famous leader.[1]:22

The Magdalo had a rivalry with the other Katipunan chapter in Cavite, the Magdiwang. When the Manila-based Katipunan leader Andres Bonifacio went to Cavite to mediate between them, the Magdalo argued for the replacement of the Katipunan by a revolutionary government.[1]:90 The Magdiwang initially backed Bonifacio's stance that the Katipunan already served as their government, but at the Tejeros Convention, both factions were combined into to one government body under Emilio Aguinaldo.

The majority, if not all, of the civil and military officials of the First Philippine Republic came from this group.
