República Argentina
  • S. H. Steinberg
Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)


In 1510 Don Juan Díaz de Solis 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,’ and in February, 1530, he founded the city of the ‘Puerto de Santa Maria del Buen Aire.’ In 1810 the population rose against Imperial Spanish rule and in 1816 Argentina proclaimed its independence. Civil wars and anarchy followed until, in 1853, a stable government was established with a constitution.
