September 15 Facts
Another important factor, but little mentioned, was the fact that the Spanish crown itself influenced independence ideas. During the 18th century, the Bourbon kings promoted a process of modernization of New Spain. Modernization was based on the way of thinking known as Enlightenment. This system of values was what ultimately fed the liberal and independence ideas in the colony.
The independence movement in Mexico was also motivated by the already achieved Independence of the United States of America in 1776 and the French Revolution in 1789.
Finally, with the French occupation of Spain in 1808, when Kings Carlos IV and Fernando VII abdicated in favor Napoleon Bonaparte, who, in turn, left the crown of Spain to his brother José Bonaparte, the independence movements began throughout Latin America.
Between 1808 and 1810, with the lack of a king, there were several coup attempts in Mexico, all perpetrated by Creole conspirators who sought to remove the Spanish from power.
