Storyboard Text

  • Unrest in the empire started in the 1780s with a few sparsely scattered uprisings. Despite not achieving much politically, the climate of revolution had begun
  • Much like their neighbors in Haiti, events in Europe gave rise to opportunities for independence.
  • In 1808 Napolean Bonaparte's army invaded Spain and captured King Ferdinand and His family,
  • A council called the Junta was formed to rule in the absence of the king.
  • Because the Junta was comprised completely of Spaniards the Creoles refused to abide by their rules
  • The people argued that they were subjects of the King of Spain, not Spain itself and thus were not expected to report to the Junta in the absence of a king
  • Napoleon was defeated in 1815 and Ferdinand VII returned to the throne.
