The Katipunan or the Kataas-taasang, Kagalang-galangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan or simply KKK, is the revolutionary society in the Philippines which revolted against the Spaniards during the Spanish Colonization period.

It was founded by Andres Bonifacio, the Father of Philippine Revolution, Teodoro Plata, Ladislao Diwa, and many more.

There was a time in the revolution against Spain where a split was developed in the society, which led to two rivaling factions. Here are the two rival Katipunan factions:

  • Magdalo
    • A Katipunan faction filled with Ilustrados of Cavite. This was led by Baldomeo Aguinaldo but the first president of the Philippines Emilio Aguinaldo was the faction’s famous leader since his code name happened to be Magdalo.
