The October Revolution was a period of armed conflict that occurred in 1819 in Prasia between royalist forces and revolutionary forces who wanted the colony to become independent.
The revolution began as a series of riots across the country against Spanish rule, mainly focusing on taxation. The riots had stemmed from an anti-royalist sentiment that had been prominent in Prasian culture for several years. The riots turned violent in October 1819, when the first shots were fired in San Luis. By the end of the month, revolutionary forces had driven all the royalist forces from the city, and captured several administrative buildings, flying republican flags over them.
The revolutionary forces then established a provisional government- the Junta Nacional, although in reality it failed to hold any real power and only some parts of the country came under its jurisdiction. San Luis was re-captured by royalist forces the next month, and the Spanish imposed rule that was stronger yet.
