Jorge Montt (hôr´hā mōnt), 1846–1922, Chilean vice admiral, president of Chile (1891–96). He was a distant relative of Manuel and Pedro Montt. A leader in the ruinous civil war against Balmaceda, he commanded both the sea and land forces of the insurrectionists and, after the cessation of hostilities, he headed a provisional junta and then became president. An honest but undistinguished administrator, he was only superficially involved with the program of fiscal and political reforms instituted during his presidency.
