Abstract

In 1516, Don Juan Díaz de Solís discovered the Río de La Plata. In 1534, Don Pedro de Mendoza was sent by the King of Spain to take charge of the ‘Gobernación y Capitanía de las tierras del Río de La Plata.’ In February 1536, he founded the city of the ‘Puerto de Santa Marfa del Buen Aire,’ and in 1810 the population rose against Imperial Spanish rule. In 1816 Argentina proclaimed its independence. Civil wars and anarchy followed until, in 1853, a stable government was established with a constitution.
