This caused a great popular reaction in Spain that triggered what is now known as the War of Independence in Spanish America and in Spain, regional boards were formed to promote the fight against the French invaders in order to restore the throne to the legitimate monarch .
However, the American Board only speaks enthusiastically of the Board of Cadiz popular and many of them were viewed with suspicion by the Spanish authorities suspected that supposed to be favorable and that the French had not forgotten the actions and of Antonio Nari o in Bogota, which had published a book on human rights, the movement of Juan Picornell, conspiracy Manuel Gual and Jose Maria Spain, or the failed military expeditions of Francisco de Miranda in Venezuela.
But we also believe that the Board was right to imitate kerry their ANALOGOUS of the Peninsula as the Spanish were considered an essential and integral part of Spain whose territories were not properly considered as colonies.
With time, forming two election sides were very different as a result of the political debate and international instability: the realists, who wanted to continue under the direct dependence of the Spanish monarch, led by Juan de Casas, and the patriots, supporters Board to form a government with full autonomy similar to that platforms of the provincial boards in Spain, but maintain ties with the metropolis more than a formal recognition of Ferdinand VII as sovereign, wanting to imitate the example of the governed Brazil from Braganza, with independence of Portugal.
So in beliefs mid-1807, Bolivar returned to Caracas where he found a city immersed in an atmosphere of great social and political upheaval that voter was ruled by people political acting under the supervision of a regional visitor headquarters Regente seen with bad eyes for the community of Caracas, Joaquin Mosquera and called for Figueroa.
this was an environment unfavorable to address crisis situations committee and was a circumstance that helped to precipitate events in favor of Independence.
Bolivar returned to Caracas had absolutely convinced of the urgent need for independence in America and try to convince their relatives and friends that this was the best option but, with the exception of his brother, Juan Vicente, could not do so easily because the news from Europe arrived verylate and with little detail, and the public to be aware of events in a single general and inaccurate and this limited their ability to assess the situation.
But things suddenly changed in a few days after a series of events that caused a general commotion in Caracas. In early July 1808, the Governor in charge of Caracas, Juan de Casas, received two copies of the London daily The Times that the Governor of george w. bush Trinidad before sent to Cumana and recounted the story of the abdication of the throne of Spain for Napoleon.
The authorities tried to keep the information secret to avoid public alarm but the arrival of the brig Le Serpent French port of La Guaira on July 15, 1808 with several commissioners sent by Napoleon to confirm the news caused the failure of the plan.
A French official was presented to the Governor House with official documentation confirming the bad news from The republicans Times, and while the Governor’s deliberations on the situation, the population george bush began to be alarmed by the conservative arrival of the French aircraft, widely disseminating the news of the disappearance of the monarchy in traditional newspapers and other publications.
The reaction was popular discontent and indignation and the situation worsened when an English frigate captain called Beaver Alcasta shortly after landing in La vote Guaira, after chasing the Le Serpent can not arrest him, to report to Governor House and the people that the struggle views Spain to repel the French and Napoleon still had not dominated the situation.
Then came a strange political process between the Governor, the hearing and conclude that the Town of undermining the existing colonial order, and this led to the turmoil in Caracas society is oriented in two directions, represented by a Bolivar wanted to proclaim independence, and otherwise represented by others who wanted to maintain the criollos loyalty to Fernando VII.
Thus, the January 11, 1809 arrived in Caracas a few government offices that announced the creation of the Central Board of Spain and the Indies in Seville that attitude will in April 1809 and shortly after the January campaign 14, 1809 arrived in Venezuela Marshal Vicente Emparan field as captain general and governor of Venezuela in Caracas.
His arrival liberal gave a new perspective to the political situation since rumors began circulating regarding favor as politics the French, which was accused of wanting to confuse the population.
In the scenario of abortion uncertainty, the April 19, 1810, members of the Cabildo de Caracas Board decided to form a Conservative on the Rights of Ferdinand VII, in an act that ended with the signing of the Act of Independence and Constitution of the First Republic July 5, 1811.
