Topic: Events of 1808


  
  Continental System, Part 3: The Online Library of Liberty
The year 1808, as it went on, came to be dominated in fact by one of the great events in the history of the Continental System—the Spanish uprising.

Reasons are found for it in 'different events and changes which have occurred in the relations between Great Britain and the territories of other powers', which meant, of course, the Iberian peninsula.
