leave a comment »

The Treaty of Córdoba established Mexican independence from Spain at the conclusion of the Mexican War of Independence. It was signed on August 24, 1821 in Córdoba, Veracruz, Mexico. It’s the first document in which Spanish and Mexican officials accept the liberty of what will become the First Mexican Empire. In the treaty, New Spain is recognized as an independent empire, which is defined as “monarchical, constitutional and moderate.”
