History of Argentina

The history of Argentina is divided by historians into four main parts: the pre-Colombian time or early history (up to the sixteenth century), the colonial period (1530–1810), the period of the nation-building (1810 to 1880), and the history of modern Argentina (from around 1880).

Prehistory in the present territory of Argentina began with the first human settlements on the southern tip of Patagonia around 13,000 years ago. Written history began with the arrival of Spanish chroniclers in the expedition of Juan Diaz de Solis in 1516 to the Rio de la Plata, which marks the beginning of Spanish domination in this region.

In 1776 the Spanish Crown established the Vice royalty of the Rio de la Plata, an umbrella of territories from which, with the Revolution of May 1810, began a process of gradual formation of several independent states, including one called the United Provinces of Rio de la Plata. With the declaration of independence on July 9, 1816 and the military defeat of the Spanish Empire in 1824, a federal state was formed in 1853-1861, known today as the Republic of Argentina.


Language of Argentina is Spanish, but with a different accent to other countries where people speak Spanish.
