As allies the two men had fought against the French in the Battle of Puebla, but once Juárez rose to power Díaz tried to unseat him. Díaz began his reign as president in 1876, and ruled until May 1911 when Francisco I. Madero succeeded him, taking office in November 1911. Díaz's regime is remembered for the advances he brought in industry and modernization, at the expense of human rights and liberal reforms. He worked to reduce the power of the Roman Catholic Church and expropriated some of their large property holdings. PorfirioDíaz's government from 1876–1910 has become known as the Porfiriato.
He believed in democracy and free-elections for all of Mexico. His popularity caused Diaz to feel threatened, and, to deal with the issue, falsely accused Madero and put him in jail right before elections. Diaz was then reelected as president and released Madero from jail where he fled to Texas. There, he stated that Mexico’s elections were illegitimate and wrote a document declaring revolution on November 10, 1910. Mader became president and Diaz fled to Europe.
After reading the Texas Declaration of Independence and the rebuttal to it, I feel that Texas has presented the more convincing arguments. Texas provides a variety of supportive arguments on why they want to become independent from Mexico. Texas gives many examples of different ways Mexico is trying to take over their land. Texas refers to themselves as “an instrument in the hands of evil rulers.” (117) Texas and Mexico both sworn to support the federal republican constitution of their country, but it no longer had a important existence, due to the Mexican nation forcibly changing the whole nature of their government without giving Texas any consent. Texas argues that the Mexican General Santa Anna made late changes in the government and overturned the constitution that both states originally had agreed upon.
One example appears for you.

He reigned from 1775 until his execution in 1793. Throughout his reign as King, he bankrupted the country while aiding the Americans who were at war against the British during the American Revolution, causing a raise in taxes and the price of grain. The peasants started to riot. And on July 14th 1789, the peasants stormed the Bastille, starting the Revolution, and the downfall of the King and the monarchy in France. After that, Louis and his family were arrested, and were brought to Paris.
He came into power during the Napoleonic Wars, and is most remembered for his involvement in these wars and his sudden change from an active liberal ruler to a more moderate czar. Originally Alexander I relaxed political repression, but later in his reign he joined Metternich in the Holy Alliance in a movement to subdue national and liberal movements. Alexander died in 1825, and Decembrist revolts followed as people argued over his successor. After his brother's death in 1825, Czar Nicholas I came to power. Nicholas is remembered for his much harsher treatment of the people and constant strife for more power.
The reason of this rebel was mainly due to the foreign attacks on Chinese territory in the late 19th Century. The Russians took land from Manchuria and Lushun; the British controlled Weihaiwei and made it even more extensive by taking out a 99-year lease in a peninsula in the North of Hong Kong. Germany took a port from the Shandong peninsula and even the French seized territory in the South. With foreign countries taking direct control of parts of China and with the Dynasty not doing anything to stop it, it sent humiliation through China and sparked a growing feeling of nationalism and spurred the idea of revolution. A revolutionary alliance was created and in the early 20th century, several attacks were made on the Qing Dynasty but were halted by the Qing army.
France thought the war would not only help by stopping Germany’s increase in power. It would also help Napoleon III to regain his popularity after some of his failures after the commencement of his dictatorship, such as the Mexican adventure of 1867. I will now go onto the short term reasons. Firstly, Spain needed a king and Bismarck saw his chance to send Prince Leopold to become king there. France protested because they thought that having German influence on both sides would be too much if conflict would have occured.
Napoleon's first major mistake was made in March of 1808, when Napoleon intervened in a dispute between the present king of Spain and the king's son. He placed them both in prison and put his own brother on the throne. The people of Spain did not take too kindly to this act and so began a bloody war that was not defined by major battles, but by guerrilla warfare that kept a large number of French troops occupied to keep control of the country. French troops would end up executing hundreds of Spaniards who were thought to be resisting French power. Britain saw an opportunity to weaken Napoleon's empire by landing 13,000 troops on the coast of Portugal, where they made their way up along Spain's coastline.
In 1519, he and his men took over and established what [now is Veracruz]; dismissing the authorities of Velazquez and placed himself directly under Charles V’s orders. Velazquez, not pleased about any of this, set out an expedition to capture Cortes. Once Cortes set out to fight, the Aztecs began to rebel back in Tenochtitlan [and Montezuma died]. Cortes’ hunger and determination for power drove him back to Tenochtitlan, [taking advantage of retrieving belongings and possessions that could contribute to his power]. Three months later, the Aztec empire fell and Mexico became New Spain.
