On November 12, 1853, President Antonio López de Santa Anna announced a competition to write a national anthem for Mexico The competition offered a prize for the best poetic composition representing patriotic ideals González, a talented poet, was not interested in participating in the competition He argued that writing love poems involved very different skills from the ones required to write a national anthem His fiancée, Guadalupe González del Pino or Pili, had undaunted faith in her fiancé's poetic skills and was displeased with his constant refusal to participate in spite of her constant prodding and requests from their friends Under false pretenses, she lured him to a secluded bedroom in her parents' house, locked him into the room, and refused to let him out until he produced an entry for the competition Inside the room in which he was temporarily imprisoned were pictures depicting various events in Mexican history which helped to inspire his work After four hours of fluent albeit forced inspiration, Francisco regained his freedom by slipping all ten verses of his creation under the door After Francisco received approval from his fiancée and her father, he submitted the poem and won the competition by unanimous vote González was announced the winner in the publication Official Journal of the Federation DOF on February 3, 1854
In 1943, six of González's ten verses were cut from the official full national anthem, leaving his chorus and stanzas 1, 5, 6, and 10
