In 1516 Don Juan Díaz de Solís discovered the Bio de La Plata. In 1534 Don Pedro de Mendoza was sent by the King of Spain to take charge of the ‘Gobernación y Capitanía de las tierras del Bio de La Plata,’ and in Feb. 1536 he founded the city of the ‘Puerto de Santa Maria del Buen Aire.’ In 1810 the population rose against Imperial Spanish rule, and in 1816 Argentina proclaimed its independence. Civil wars and anarchy followed until, in 1853, a stable government was established with a constitution.
