Most and fewest living presidents[edit]

There have been two time periods with fourteen living presidents (i.e., the incumbent and thirteen former presidents):

  • 6 August 1989 to 15 July 1993 – Hugo Ballivián, Víctor Paz Estenssoro, Hernán Siles Zuazo, Luis Adolfo Siles Salinas, Hugo Banzer, Juan Pereda, David Padilla, Wálter Guevara, Alberto Natusch, Lidia Gueiler, Luis García Meza, Celso Torrelio, Guido Vildoso, and Jaime Paz Zamora
  • 6 August 1993 to 23 November 1994 – Víctor Paz Estenssoro, Hernán Siles Zuazo, Luis Adolfo Siles Salinas, Hugo Banzer, Juan Pereda, David Padilla, Wálter Guevara, Alberto Natusch, Lidia Gueiler, Luis García Meza, Celso Torrelio, Guido Vildoso, Jaime Paz Zamora, and Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada

There have been two time periods when the incumbent president was the only living president, having no living predecessors:

  • 12 August 1825 to 29 December 1829 – Simón Bolívar, who, being the first president, had no predecessors
  • 18 December 1875 to 4 May 1876 – Tomás Frías, after the death of his last living predecessor, Sebastián Ágreda

Notably, between the assassination of Agustín Morales on 27 November 1872 and the swearing-in of Tomás Frías on 28 November 1872, there was one day in which Sebastián Ágreda was the only living president with no incumbent in office.
