After the French and American Revolution is when this all began
Latin wanted freedom and they were jealous of the other countries so they made a plan

Although this wasn't successful, his idea started a lot of revolutions
He took over after the French Revolution and that was his solution

Revolution in Brazil
When Napoleon came to take over Portugal with French troops in 1807, the royal family (King Dom Pedro IV and Queen Carlota Jouquina) fled to Brazil. Later when Napoleon was defeated and the outbreak of the Liberal Revolution in 1020, the king came back to rule, leaving his son Pedro I, the heir, in Brazil. The Brazilians begged for the Prince to stay and rule them, then in 1822 he became the first ruler of Brazil and the founder of the Brazilian empire. He declared Brazils independence from Portugal on September 7th, 1822, and by 1824 had defeated all the Portuguese armies.
