Gran Colombia (1819 – 1831): a Short-Lived Dream of Unity and Liberation

History Documentaries

The Rise and Fall of Gran Colombia, which existed from 1819 to 1831, is a significant chapter in the history of South America. Gran Colombia was a vast republic that encompassed the territories of modern-day Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, and Venezuela. It was born out of the tumultuous period of Spanish colonial rule and the broader Latin American struggle for independence from Spanish colonial rule. After the dissolution of Gran Colombia, these newly independent nations each developed their own political systems and governments. Simón Bolívar, who had played a central role in the independence movement, retired from politics and lived out his later years in exile.
