In 1863 the turbulent reign of the dissolute Queen Isabella II entered upon its last phase when she cheated Prim of the premiership—the leader of the Progresistas who was to dethrone her in 1868. The population of the country (census 1857) was 163m. The budget was balanced by the reckless and unprofitable sale of church property; the public debt amounted to 14,531m. reales (about £145m.). Oversea adventures and wars in Mexico, Cuba, San Domingo and Morocco were an additional drain on man-power and finances. The colonial empire included, in addition to the present possessions in Africa, the Philippines, Marianas and Carolinas in the Pacifie and Puerto Rico and Cuba in the Caribbean.
