El vuelo del águila (The Flight of the Eagle) is a Mexican telenovela produced by Ernesto Alonso and Carlos Sotomayor for Televisa in 1994–1995. Telenovela based on the Mexican soldier and President of Mexico Porfirio Díaz, from his name had come out the title "Época Porfiriana" or "Porfiriato" during the period of his rule, in the years 1876–1911.


A military hero of the Reform War, called Porfirio Díaz, was also one of the most important strategists behind the overthrow of the Second Mexican Empire. Diaz tried several times to come to power through military coups, until a last revolution in 1876 led him to the Presidency of the Republic. Except for a brief period (1880-1884), Porfirio Díaz ruled until 1911, when the takeover by Francisco I. Madero forced him to resign and go into exile.
