The Mexican Empire is a nation in north america.
In January of 1790, after the movements of the French Revolution; the Mexicans were asking for revogation of several spanish impositions over the years, like the Colonial status and the Casta system imposed. The Spanish crown opposed and sent the army to repress the riots in Mexico City and Veracruz. The army, initially obeying Madrid orders, advanced against the population, only to be pushed back. After some weeks, some regiments joined the rebellion and even some officers, like Agustín de Iturbide, joined as commanders of the movement. After a month, the whole colonial army of New Spain was under Mexican control. The Spanish tried to send some troops from Europe, but those refused to embark, fearfull of the repression by the Mexicans, made famous by several Spanish newspapers. After some battle against the few troops that arrived, Agustín, now Leader of the independence movement, managed to convince a peace treaty, being recognized the Mexican independence, under the rule of Emperor Agustín I, crowned in the December of 1790.
