Although, the development of change already faced opposition from right-winged supporters, including rich landowners who feared social changes that the Republic would try to implement. Under Generals Sanjurjo, Franco and Mola, the Spanish Civil War began as a military coup, which was aimed to put an end to the democratic political change that was seen in 1931. As seen in Italy with Mussolini in 1922 and with Hitler in Germany in 1933, one could argue that the rise of fascism subsequently kick started the demand of a takeover in Spain. But, we have to bear in mind the bad timing of 1931 to implement such a change, with the worldwide economic crisis caused by the 1929 Wall Street Crash in America, and the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, there was now fear throughout Europe of communism and revolution. Although at the beginning of the rebellion, the three main generals were not actually all in Spain.
However in 1553 when Mary proposed the marriage treaty England was economically drained and therefore vulnerable. An alliance with wealthy Spain served Englands interests in protecting it from France. It was also crucial to Mary's ultimate aim of making England catholic again. She was aware she needed a catholic heir if her changes to England were to stick. Charles could provide that.
Charles, however, used money from any region that was willing to give it to him to finance any of his many wars. The Low countries and Italy initially financed his active foreign policy but following the 1539 revolt of Ghent Charles turned to Spain as his main source of revenue His reliance upon the tax from the Castilian Cortes and loans using Spain as collateral to pay for wars that weren’t strictly in Spain’s interest almost ran the country into bankruptcy. Charles was using extraordinary sources of Spanish revenue to maintain his control of Europe. Such sources of revenue could not be continued in the long run and it is no surprise that by 1558 Philip II had declared bankruptcy. The powerful Spanish Church contributed much to Charles V treasury.
On the contrary, the marriage would safeguard England as any heir Mary and Philip may have produced would have inherited the Netherlands and England. This could potentially become a secure and substantial empire; therefore at this point in time, Spain was an ally to England. However, Spain was soon to become much less of an ally to England, demonstrated by Philip’s actions soon after their marriage. He only visited England in 1556, when he wanted England to join Spain in war with France in 1557. Spain had already defeated France when England captured St Quentin and the war soon led to England losing its last foothold in Europe - Calais.
For the first time people asserted their rights and the freedom of speech. => James dissolved the Parliament again. By this time he was no longer popular. Prince Charles went to Spain on his own without telling anyone, to seduce the infanta. But when he arrived in Spain the infanta hated him.
Another reason that helped the U.S. win the Revolutionary War was the intervention of France, Spain, and the Netherlands in the conflict made a crucial difference. It is highly improbable that the U.S. could have won its independence without the assistance of France, Spain, and Holland. Fearful of losing its sugar colonies in the West Indies, Britain was unable to concentrate its military forces in the American colonies. Lastly, the third reason why U.S. won the Revolutionary War was the breadth of popular support for the Revolutionary. The Revolution would have failed miserably without the participation of thousands of ordinary farmers, artisans, and laborers who put themselves into the line of fire.

In the year of 1810, México had an influence from United States and France so they began to think in the idea of fight against the Spanish. In that time, a King of Spain was governing but he had many unfair laws because he gave all the power to the rich people of Spain instead of the people that were born in Mexico, especially the Mexican Indians, they were exploited. A priest, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla and his officers were arming a conspiracy against Spanish so they decided to fight in the fall of that year but then Hidalgo received a letter from Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez, the owner of the house where they were planning the revolt in Queretaro, and she told him that the Spanish caught them and that now they knew their plans so Hidalgo decided to anticipate the fight. He gathered many persons as he could in his church so he made an army of 50,000 persons. Miguel Hidalgo rang the bell of the
Tensions had been rising between England and Spain and in 1736 I built Fort Frederica on St. Simons Island as my main defense against the Spanish colonists. Three years later the war between Spain and Britain was about to begin at anytime and I knew that Georgia would become the field of battle. Along the way I formed alliances with a few Native American tribes, and then my man count had reached two thousand. I managed to capture three Spanish forts, but was not able to seize St. Augustine. Sickness broke out and many of my soldiers from South Carolina were deserted, so in June 1740 I pulled my troops out.
America planned on retrieving Cuba from Spain peacefully but this attack was the opening call for war. However, they decided to delay the war for just a few more weeks to gather establish an army force and support from Congress. False accusations about the sinking of Maine were posted in the New York Journal by Hearst and Pulitzer soon after. This only fueled the fire of hatred towards Spain even more in the hearts of American’s. Hearst and Pulitzer had been known for selling anti-Spanish articles for many years before the attack.
