Second Stage (1810-1814)

The Second Stage takes place between American revolutions in 1810 and the return to the Spanish throne of Ferdinand VII. The first American independence movements mark the next four years, although they wont claim the independence from Ferdinand VII with the exception of Caracas in 1811.

Meanwhile, at the metropolis, the Cortes de Cádiz, continue with their duties and in March 19, 1812, promulgate the Constitution, the first one of the Spanish constitutional history, although they dont take into account the claims of the Spanish-American Parliament, specially, the representation of American territories at the Courts.
