This chapter studies the political and military consequences of the demise of the Spanish monarchy in Chile in 1808. News of Napoleon Bonaparte’s attack on the Peninsula provoked a series of political and military changes that led to the replacement of the Chilean governor, Francisco Antonio García Carrasco. García Carrasco’s failure to control Santiago’s political agenda prompted a group of the capital’s politicians, hacendados and military officers to oust him from power and establish a government more sympathetic to their interests.
