Mexico after its independence was a weak country meaning that a lot of countries would search opportunities to take advantage of Mexico’s situation.
In a french bakery, a fight between some liberals and conservative soldiers began, thanks to their intolerance. This fight caused the destruction of the bakery. And the baker, called Remontel, seek for a way to get revenge of Mexican government and rebuild his store.
You'll die selfish Conservative
Die dumb liberalist.
Then the baker demand, to the Mexican government, money to repair the damage the soldier had done to its bakery. But the Mexican government refused to give him the money.
You need to give me the money to repair my bakery.
I don’t think so.
When the french government realized what was happening, differing the Mexican government , French King ,Louis Philippe ,didn’t see this event as an insignificant incident. He saw it as an opportunity to obtain the money that Mexico owed France.
With this event, we have an excuse to demand Mexico, the money it owe us.
After this Mexico refused to pay what French government demanded, so France put pressure with a naval blockade in Mexico’s ports .
This is for the French Kingdom!
Look a ship is trying to pass the blockade.
After France’s request was rejected some more times by Mexico’s government, they decided to go deeper into Mexico.
