In 1863 Honduras was going through a period of change. The north-eastern ‘Kingdom’ of Mosquitia was rapidly declining, and the eastern people of Olancho were trying to form a separate republic. Intervention was suffered from El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua, and the capital moved between Cömayagüela and Gracias. The off-shore Bay Islands had been ceded to Honduras by Great Britain in 1861. The population was estimated at just under 1m.
