Augusto José Ramón Pinochet Ugarte (1915 – 2006) was a Chilean army general and dictator, who assumed power in a coup d'état on 11 September 1973. Among his titles, he was the Commander-in-Chief of the Chilean army from 1973 to 1998, president of the Government Junta of Chile from 1973 to 1974, and President of the Republic from 1974 until transferring power to a democratically elected president in 1990.
Pinochet was secretly supported and manipulated by the Templar front Abstergo Industries. He was assigned to take over Chile from Salvador Allende via a coup d'état, as Allende intended to give Chile's corporations to the people, which would have taken them away from the hands of Abstergo.
