Maximilian I (Spanish: Maximiliano I; 6 Julie 1832 – 19 Juin 1867) wis the only monarch o the Seicont Mexican Empire.

Efter a distinguished career in the Austrian Navy, he wis proclaimed Emperor o Mexico on 10 Aprile 1864, wi the backin o Napoleon III o Fraunce an a group o Mexican monarchists who soucht tae revive the Mexican monarchy. Mony foreign govrenments, includin that o the Unitit States, refused tae recognise his admeenistration. This helped tae ensure the success o republican forces led bi Benito Juárez, an Maximilian wis captured an executit in 1867.

In Mexico, he an his consort are kent as Maximiliano an Carlota.
