Well, this is my first AAR. It will be about Chile from Victoria Revolutions until HOI2: DD Armageddon.

I'm not a very good victoria player, so the difficulty is Very Easy/Weakling (Yeah, not much of a challenge, but if i feel its too easy i will put other difficulty as the game progresses).

Trashing mad's History of the White Eagle has inspired my a lot, so i will use some ideas from there.

So, Hope you like it.


PD: English is not my primary language, so i expect there will be quite some grammar problems.

Prologue:
Independence and Anarchy

Antecedents of the Independence
(1808 - 1810)

In 1808, The Spanish Empire was in a state of great agitation and turmoil. The news of the Napolionic invasion and the overthrow of Fernando VII reached Chile. At the same time, Francisco Garcia Carrasco assumed the post of Governor of Chile. Before him, Chile already was in turmoil, but Francisco Garcia magnified the problem, because of his authoritarian manners. Movements against the ocupation of Spain started to grow.

Francisco Garcia Carrasco

The Spanish cities, after the overthrow of Fernando VII, organized themselves by making “juntas”, which was the way the country should govern itself if the king was overthrown. So, Chilean cities wanted to do the same, replacing the governor whit their own “juntas”. The most senior soldier, called Mateo de Toro y Zambrano, through the control of the troops, he had an important say in the political situation. After vacillating for some time, he agreed to hold an open public meeting on the issue in Santiago. The date was set for September 18, 1810.


Mateo de Toro y Zambrano

Chile by 1810:


Dark Green – Kingdom of Brazil
Yellow – Spain
Red – United Kingdom
Light Green – Lands Ruled by Capitania General de Chile (Part of Spain)
Green – Claimed but not ruled lands of the Capitania General de Chile (Part of Spain)

Prologue:
Independence and Anarchy

Patria Vieja
(1810 - 1814)

At the September 18 session, Mateo de Torio y Zambrano acceded to the demands of the “juntistas”, handing them the baton and saying “Here is the baton, take it and rule”.

Inmediatedly political intrigue started, whit the news of the political turbulence and wars of Europe all the while coming in. It was eventualy decided that elections for a national congress would be held in 1811.

After a failed revolt, that was led by the monarchist Tomas de Figueroa, the Real Audiencia (A long standing pillar of Spanish crown control) was dissolved and the movements against the Napoleonic control of Spain starting transforming into independentist movements. However in the elections for a national congress, the majority of seats were won by the moderates, that just wanted more autonomy, while a minority was held by revolutionaries that wanted full independence from Spain.

During that time, Jose Miguel Carrera, arrived to Chile. He Quickly started involving in intrigues of various extremists that wanted to gain power trough armed means. After two coups in the end of 1811, Jose Miguel managed to take power. Some prominent members of his government were his brothers, Juan Jose and Luis, and Bernardo O’Higgins.


Jose Miguel Carrera

In 1812, a constitution was promulgated. It stipulated “no order that emanates from outside the territory of Chile will have any effect, and anyone that tries to enforce such order will be treated as a traitor”.

Carrera also created patriotic emblems, such as the flag, shield and insignia. Also, during his government, the first chilean newspaper was created, it was called, “La Aurora de Chile”. Carrera was also Responsible for bringing the first consul from the United States, establishing a direct link between the liberalism and federalism of the USA whit the principles of the Chilean Independence movement. The National Institute and the National Library, were also created during his administration.


National Shield during the Patria vieja

The triumphs of rebellions in both, Chile and Argentina, disquieted the viceroy of Peru, Jose Fernando de Abascal y Sousa. As a result, in 1813, he sent a military expedition by sea to deal whit the situation in Chile. The troops landed on Concepcion were they were recieved whit great joy. Then they begun to march to Santiago. However, this effort failed, as did a subsequent inconclusive assault led by Gabino Gainza. Howver, this was not due to the military performance of Carrera, his incopetence led to the rise of the moderate Bernardo O’Higgins, who eventually took control of the pro-independentist forces. Harrased by both sides, Carrera resigned.


Bernardo O'Higgins

After the attemp of Gainza, the two sides signed the treaty of Lircay, nominally bringing peace. But Abascal had no intentions of honoring this treaty, and that very year he sent a much more decisive force south under the command of Mariano Osorio. O’Higgins wanted to defend the city of Rancagua, while Carrera wanted to meet the enemy at the pass of Angostura. Because the disagreement and lack of coordination, O’Higgins was forced to fight the enemy at Rancagua whitout reinforcements. The resulting battle, the Dissaster of Rancagua, ended in a complete defeat for the independentists. After the battle, Osorio entered Santiago and put an end to the Patria Vieja.


The Disaster of Rancagua

Chile by 1814:


Dark Green – Kingdom of Brazil
Yellow – Spain
Red – United Kingdom
Orange – Buenos Aires
Brown - Paraguay
Light Green – Lands Ruled by Capitania General de Chile (Part of Spain)
Green – Claimed but not ruled lands of the Capitania General de Chile (Part of Spain)

What?!. hmm.... it had until 1776 (Kingdom of Chile in Wikipedia) . I was teached that chile did had the Patagonia and we cedeed to Argentina in 1881 after a treaty (in the article of history of chile it says the same thing, here ). I really don't know what is the truth, chilean history is full of nationalistic lies, but to avoid confusion i'll change it.

Prologue:
Independence and Anarchy

Reconquista
(1814 - 1818)

The Viceroy Abascal confirmed Osorio as Governor of Chile, although a later disagreement between the two would result in Osorio’s removal and the installation of Casimiro Marco del Pont as new Governor.

The Spanish believed that it was necesary to teach the revolutionaries a good lesson and embarqued a campaign of fierce political persecution. The patriots found at Santiago were exiled to the Juan Fernandez Islands. These actions made that most of the population became angry at the Spanish government, and even the most moderated became independentists.

A large group of patriots fled to Mendoza, a province of the newly independent Argentina. At the time, the governor of the province was Jose de San Martin, a leader of Argentinian independence, who would become regarded as the “Simon Bolivar” of southern South America. Upon the arrival of the exiles, San Martin inmediately began to favor O’Higgins (Probably because they were both members of the Logia Lautaro, a pro-independence secret society). Carrera continued to lose importance.


Jose de San Martin

While San Martin and O’Higgins organized an army to cross the andes and recapture Santiago, they charged the lawyer Manuel Rodriguez Erdoiza whit the mission of mounting a guerrila campaign. The goals of this campaign were to keep the Spanish forces off balance, ridiculiza San Bruno and boost the morale of the patriots. Through his subsequent daring exploits, Rodríguez became a romantic hero of the revolution. In one of his more celebrated actions, he disguised himself as a beggar and succeeded in obtaining a coin of pity from the Governor Marco del Pont himself, who at that time had put a price on Rodríguez's head.


Manuel Rodriguez

The liberating army of the andes was prepared by 1817. After difficulty crossing the andes, royalist forces lead by Rafael Maroto were encountered in the plain of Chacabuco. The resulting battle of Chacabuco, ended in a decisive independentist victory. San Martin was proclaimed Supreme Director, but he rejected the offer, so O’Higgins took his place. One year after the battle, O’Higgins officialy declared independence.


The Battle of Chacabuco

Chile by 1818:


Dark Green – Kingdom of Brazil
Yellow – Spain
Red – United Kingdom
Light Blue – Argentina
Brown - Paraguay
Green – Lands Ruled by Chile
Light Green – Claimed but not ruled lands of Chile

During the preceding time, Joaquin de la Pezuela was installed as new viceroy of Peru. He sent Mariano Osorio whit another expediotionary force to Chile. Osorio’s troops disembarked in Concepcion, they moved north, to Santiago. O’Higgins went to encounter them, but he was surprised and defeated on the battle of Cancha Rayada.

A rumour spread about the death of O’Higgins. However, he was just crippled. After returning to Santiago, he delegated the command of the Chilean forces to Jose de San Martin. San Martin quickly marched whit his army to encounter the spanish forces. The independentis forces faced the spanish at Maipu, in santiago’s surroundings. San Martin was able to defeat the royalist, thus securing independence.


Battle of Maipu

To further stabilize the country, San Martin launched a series of actions against armed bands in the mountains, consisting of outlaws, royalists and indians. After the band of Vicente Benavides was defeated in 1822, the region around concepcion was pacified.

As San Martin worked to esablish internal stability. O’Higgins looked to defend the country against further external threads by Spain. Because of this, he developed the chilean navy as a defense against seaborn attacks, placing Lord Thomas Cochrane in the post of Admiral. In 1820, Cochrane defeated the remaining royalists forces at Valdivia in a succesful attack against a complex of fortifications.


Lord Thomas Cochrane

San Martin and O’Higgins knew that the spanish thread wouldn’t be eliminated until the viceroyalty of Peru itself, became independent from Spain. Thus, a fleet and army were prepared for an expedition to the country, and in 1820, San Martin and Cochrane set off to Peru. Because of a rivalry between Cochrane and San Martin, they failed to land the decisive blow against the viceroyalty.

In 1823, O’Higgins, forced by Ramon Freire,resigns , thus ending the Patria Nueva.

Chile by 1823:


Dark Green – Kingdom of Brazil
Yellow – Spain
Red – United Kingdom
Light Blue – Argentina
Brown - Paraguay
Green – Lands Ruled by Chile
Light Green – Claimed but not ruled lands of Chile

Olaus Petrus Nice to know that you like it. Chilean history is not vey exciting, we have been quite pacific. The only moments were we had some military action was between 1810 - 1823 (Independence), 1836 - 1839 (War against the Peru-Bolivian confederation), 1879 - 1883 (War of the pacific, against Peru and Bolivia) and 1891 (Civil War), after that we have lived peacefully.... kind of.
thrashing mad Hope you enjoy the rest of the AAR, and thanks for the inspiration. Keep up the good work whit the History of the white eagle.

Prologue:
Independence and Anarchy

The Anarchy
(1823 - 1831)

After the resignation of O’Higgins, Ramon Freire Serrano asumed the control of the country as Supreme Director.


Ramon Freire Serrano

On December of 1823, Freire promulgated a new constitution. Considered highly moralistic, it tried to regulate the public and private conducts of the chilean people. Soon it proved impracticable, and the constitution was abandoned only 6 months after beign promulgated.

Since the Chilean treasury was exhausted by the independence wars, and heavily mortgaged by the first foreign loan, contracted with British banks, Freire created a government monopoly (estanco) over tobacco, alcohols, cards and tax paper, same that was assigned to Portales, Cea and Co. and turned in a huge fiasco. This affair marked the first involvement in public government of the future universal minister, Diego Portales.


Diego Portales

Freire also completed the independence after conquering the island of Chiloe. After the treaty of Tantauco, Spain finnally renounced their territorial claims in Chile.

In the domestic arena, conflicts, especially with the supporters of O'Higgins, worsened to such a point that Freire was dismissed during a campaign in 1825, being reinstated upon his return. Nonetheless, the multiple conflicts forced Freire to resign on July 9, 1826, handing over the power to admiral Manuel blanco Encalada who assumed with the new title of "President of the Republic".

A new revolution brought him back to power on January 25, 1827 as Provisional Presidente. After order was restored, he resigned again on February 5, but his resignation was rejected by Congress, who proceeded to confirm him as President on February 15. He finally resigned on May 5, 1827.

After Freire's resignation, Francisco Antonio Pinto was elected president. He helped in the creation of a new constitution, wich didn't last long. In 1829 a revolution started against the government and the new liberal constitution.

The conservative troops, under the command of general prieto approached Santiago from the south. Soon, the liberal army, under the command of Francisco de la Lastra encountered them. The battle ended in a conservative victory.

After the conservatives took control of Santiago, Jose Tomas Ovalle was chosen as provisional president. Under his short adminstration, he managed to defeat the liberals once again in the battle of Lircay.

After the conservatives took control of Santiago, Jose Tomas Ovalle was chosen as provisional president. Under his short adminstration, he managed to defeat the liberals once again in the battle of Lircay. After his death on 1831, new elections were held. The person elected was, the general Jose Joaquin Prieto.

At this point Chile looks like modern one, but I suppose that it would get bigger :D Good thing is, that all your neighbors are culturally similar (Spanish speaking), so it wouldn`t be too hard to unite them under powerful Chilean government :)

EDIT

Are you using some kind of blank Vicky map ?
