 Kingdom of Bahia was a constituent kingdom of the United Kingdom of Portugal, Essequibo and the Algarves. Bahia was a rich colony because of the sugar cane plantations until the early 1800's, when the coffee started to be more valorized than the sugar, mainly in San Paulo, ruining the economy of the kingdom.

Due to the recent instability in Portugal (the Liberal Wars), and the poor economy on the kingdom, and also reasons such as the abolition of slavery and redistribute land to the people, a group led by the doctor and political leader Francisco Sabino, the politician João Carneiro da Silva Rego, and the military José Duarte da Silva and Luiz Antônio Barbosa de Almeida, rose in the capital of the kingdom, Salvador, and conquered other people in other cities, adhering to the known Sabinada Revolution.
