In 1863 Mexico had been independent for 52 years, but was suffering from internal dissensions which permitted the loss of Texas (1845) and the full-scale United States invasion of 1847–48 by which she lost New Mexico and Upper California. Further conflicts consequent upon the constitution of 5 Feb. 1857 so weakened the country that the French, with the connivance of Spain and Britain, in turn invaded Mexico and on 10 July 1863 imposed the archduke Maximilian of Austria as head of an ‘hereditary monarchy’, with the personal title of Emperor. The population was about 8․3m., including 4․87m. Indians and 1․5m. mestizos.
