Why did it happen?

  • Many revolutions took place in Latin America as a result of Napoleon's reign, enlightenment ideas, and instability in Spain.
  • Lima, Peru was the capitol of Spanish rule during this time, and many Spaniards occupied this country.
  • Peru was the last country in Latin America to remain loyal to Spain, but Jose de San Martin, after leading several successful revolutions, planned to free Peru from Spanish rule as well.
