Mexican Revolutionaries’ Great-Granddaughters Pose for Playboy

MEXICO CITY – A pair of twenty-something sisters, great-granddaughters of revolutionary leaders, are marking the bicentennial of Mexican Independence and the 100-year anniversary of the start of the Mexican Revolution with a nude photo shoot for the adult publication Playboy Mexico, the magazine said.

Fernanda and Isabel Calles Carranza “will show off their beauty in a lovely pictorial to kick off the 2010 festivities,” Playboy Mexico said.

After learning about these two university students and their family background, the magazine’s publishers sought them out and convinced them to appear in the February edition.

The two women are great-granddaughters of a brother of revolutionary leader Plutarco Elias Calles (1877-1945), who was president of Mexico, and a cousin of Venustiano Carranza (1859-1920), also a one-time Mexican head of state.

The two men were allies during the early years of the 1910-1917 Mexican Revolution but later became bitter enemies because of their fierce battle for the presidency.

Carranza has gone down in history as the architect of Mexico’s 1917 constitution, while Calles is known for his key role in building the country’s 20th century institutions.

The magazine recalled the rivalry between these two historical figures.

“In April 1920, (Gen.) Plutarco Elias Calles presented the Plan of Agua Prieta, which called for the overthrow of Venustiano Carranza,” Playboy Mexico said.

“History has its twists and turns and the two surnames (Calles and Carranza), in conflict at that time for political reasons, were united years later with the marriage of the parents of Fernanda and Isabel,” the magazine said.

Playboy Mexico said the February edition will offer readers “a tribute to the men and women who bequeathed us our liberty.” EFE
