Abstract

HISTORY. In 1515 Juan Díaz de Solis discovered the Rio de La Plata. In 1534 Pedro de Mendoza was sent by the King of Spain to take charge of the ‘Gobernación y Capitanía de las tierras del Rio de La Plata’, and in Feb. 1536 he founded the city of the ‘Puerto de Santa María del Buen Aire’. In 1810 the population rose against Spanish rule, and in 1816 Argentina proclaimed its independence. Civil wars and anarchy followed until, in 1853, stable government was established.
