Departing without Leaving

Departing without Leaving

Luso-Brazilians under the Viceroyalty

(p.34) 2 Departing without Leaving
Edge of Empire

Fabrício Prado

University of California Press

In 1777, the Spaniards conquered the Portuguese town of Colonia do Sacramento. The end of the Portuguese colonial project in the region did not mean that Portuguese subjects departed from Rio de la Plata. Chapter 2 analyzes the relocation of Portuguese subjects to Spanish domains and the reorientation of their networks in the region. Luso-Brazilians maintained a strong demographic presence in the Banda Oriental and in Montevideo after 1777. This chapter argues that Montevideo became the center of social and commercial networks that were previously located in Colonia do Sacramento.
