Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)


Argentina was discovered in 1508 by Juan Diaz de Solis and Vicente Yánez Pinzón. In 1535 Don Pedro de Mendoza was sent out by the King of Spain, and in that same year founded the town of Buenos Aires. On May 25, 1810, the population rose against the Spanish rule, and on July 9, 1816, Argentine independence was proclaimed. Between 1816 and 1852 was a period of anarchy, and in 1853 stable government was once more established.
