[60], William de Croÿ, the young Flemish Archbishop of Toledo appointed by Charles, died in January 1521 in Worms, Germany. With the arrival of the new king in late 1517, his Flemish court took positions of power in Castile; young Charles only trusted people he knew from the Netherlands. Get this from a library! The comuneros' attempt to use Queen Joanna for legitimacy did not bear fruit, as she blocked their initiatives and refused to sign any edicts. The wavering position of Burgos was soon known to the royalists, and the Constable of Castile negotiated with Burgos's government. [25], Faced with the situation in Segovia, Regent and Cardinal Adrian of Utrecht decided to use the royal artillery, located in nearby Medina del Campo, to take Segovia and defeat Padilla. [47], Gradually, both the city of Toledo and its leader Juan López de Padilla lost influence within the Junta, though Padilla retained popularity and prestige among the commoners. [99], The revolt, fresh in the memory of Spain, is referenced in several literary works during Spain's Golden Age. [107] According to approved historians such as José María Pemán, the revolt was fundamentally an issue of petty Spanish regionalism, something which Franco did his best to discourage. Similarly, the edict also declared that those who supported the Comunidades were traitors, disloyal, rebels, and infidels. From this date onwards, groups were created in several places that opposed what was imposed by the Spanish rulers. [112] Similarly, each February 3 since 1988 has been celebrated by the Castilian nationalist party Tierra Comunera in Toledo. Acuña, a relentless self-promoter, tried to minimize the loss and even claimed that he had emerged victorious from the confrontation. However, with this movement, the comuneros left the path to Tordesillas completely unprotected. [105], General Franco's government from 1939 to 1975 also encouraged an unfavorable interpretation of the comuneros. [21] Incidents of a similar size occurred in cities such as Burgos and Guadalajara, while others, such as León, Ávila, and Zamora, suffered minor altercations.[22]. [53], This situation continued until December 2, when Girón, apparently thinking the royal army would remain entrenched,[c] moved his forces west to the small town of Villalpando. [94] Charles also adjusted the membership of the Royal Council; its hated president was replaced, the aristocracy's role reduced, and more gentry were added to it. [102] Another Revolt of the Comuneros in New Granada (modern Colombia) was similarly unrelated to the original except in name. [24] A letter from Cardinal Adrian on August 25 warned Charles of the severity of the situation: Your Highness is making a great error if you think that you will be able to collect and make use of this tax; there is no one in the Kingdom, not in Seville or Valladolid or any other city who will ever pay anything of it; all the grandees and members of the council are amazed that Your Highness has scheduled payments from these funds. [66], Despite the renewed enthusiasm among the rebels, a decision was made to remain in their positions near Valladolid without pressing their advantage or launching a new attack. This forced the rebels to intensify their recruitment drives, especially in Toledo, Salamanca, and Valladolid itself. The royalists occupied nearby villages to cut communication lines back to other comuneros. [3] The landed nobility of Castile took advantage of the weak and corrupt Royal Council to illegally expand their territory and domain with private armies while the government did nothing. At its height, the rebels controlled the heart of Castile, ruling the cities of Valladolid, Tordesillas, and Toledo..

A good place to start exploring Socorro is at Our Lady of Chiquinquirá Park (Parque Nuestra Señora de Chiquinquirá). The government had expelled the Jews in 1492 and the Muslims of Granada in 1502, moves that undercut lucrative trades and businesses. In order for Spain to benefit economically from the colonies, it needed stricter control over their government. [78] The remains of the rebel army at Villalar fragmented, with some attempting to join Acuña's army near Toledo and others deserting. [107] The autonomous community of Castile and León was created in response to public demand in 1983, and it recognized April 23 as an official holiday in 1986. The comuneros then threatened to hang all of the inhabitants, at which point the castle surrendered. Los comuneros: historia de la insurección de 1781 (1880) Bogotá: C. Valencia Editores, 1977.

Add comment February 1st, 2018 Headsman. He appeared at the Zocodover Plaza in the heart of the city on March 29, 1521, Good Friday. The Marquis of Villena and Duke of Infantado contacted Acuña and persuaded him to sign a pact of mutual neutrality. The government was not amenable to encouraging rebellions, and only used the term to condemn opposition. There is a debate among historians over what the main factor was, but what is clear is that the need for economic and political reform and the idea of self-government were contributors. He continued to demand payments from Castile; with the government of Castile still in arrears, Cardinal Adrian found it impossible to secure any new loans. [105] The first major commemorative event came in 1821, the third centenary of the Battle of Villalar. In 1516, Ferdinand died. He decided to take Torrelobatón and its castle. [4] In response, the towns signed mutual defense pacts, relying on each other rather than the national government. Peace returned, but on the terms of the royal authorities, not those of the Comuneros. [38] This uprising was followed by others of a similar anti-feudal nature. He gave battle with the harrying royalist cavalry at the town of Villalar. [28], The first political defeats of the comuneros came in October 1520. Fonseca ordered the setting of a fire to distract the resistance, but it grew out of control. 04/06/2011 Peter C. Earle The almost-lost story of the Revolt of the Comuneros is described (and often dismissed) as little more than an uprising of the citizens of the Kingdom of Castile against the monarchy in the early 16th century. "Review of The People and the King: The Comunero Revolt in Colombia, 1781 by John Leddy Phelen". [53], With Pedro Girón in command, the army of the comuneros advanced on Medina de Rioseco, following the orders of the Junta. [90] Pedro Girón received a pardon conditional on him going into exile to Oran in North Africa, where he served as a commander against the Moors. [12] Taxes[a] had to be raised to cover the debt, but any new taxes had to be approved by the Cortes (Castile's own parliamentary body). Segovia had some of the earliest and most violent incidents; on May 30, a mob of woolworkers murdered two administrators and the city's legislator who had voted in favor. [109] Maravall, who views the revolt as one of the first modern revolutions, especially stresses the ideological conflict and intellectual nature of the revolt, with features such as the first proposed written constitution of Castile. It remained rebel-controlled. Comuneros revolt took place in. comuneros kōmo͞onā´rōs , in Spain and Spanish America, citizens of a city or cities when organized to defend their rights against arbitrary encroachment of government. They decried the short-term expenses that would be borne by Castile and questioned the role of Castile in this new political framework, given the possibility that the land would become a mere imperial province. [42] While the royal army was still in tatters, many high nobles maintained their own well-trained mercenary armies—armies that with the revolt's recent radicalization would now fight for the king. [86], Charles V returned to Spain on July 16, 1522. The crowd gathered around him and took him directly to the cathedral, claiming the archbishop's chair for him. This small plaza is where the Revolt of the Comuneros began … Ni un paso atrás, siempre adelante, y lo que fuere menester … sea!-Jose Antonio Galan. Comunero Rebellion, also called Comunero Revolt or Commoners’ Rebellion, Spanish Insurrección de los Comuneros, popular uprising in 1780–81 in the Viceroyalty of New Granada. The celebration highlights the roles of Juan López de Padilla and María Pacheco, and is done in memory of the rebellion in 1522, the last event of the war. Additionally, the comuneros did not properly appreciate Spain's "imperial destiny. [40] The dynamics of the uprising thus changed profoundly, as it could now jeopardize the status of the entire manorial system. [46] This attitude concealed a great shortage of funds on the royal side. Leon, Guadalajara, Burgos, and Zamora followed. [59], Still in Germany, Charles V issued the Edict of Worms on December 17, 1520 (not to be confused with the Edict of Worms of May 25, 1521, against Martin Luther), which condemned 249 prominent Comunidad members. [51][71], Acuña departed for Toledo in February with a small force under his command. The nobles' land and holdings were completely devastated. [9], Richard Stoller, "Comunero Revolt (New Granada)" in. [88], Back in Valladolid, Charles declared a general pardon on November 1. [55], Following the loss of Tordesillas, the comuneros regrouped in Valladolid. As a consequence, Charles was nearly constantly at war, fighting France, England, the Papal States, the Ottoman Turks, the Aztecs, the Incas, and the Protestant Schmalkaldic League during his reign. Soon, a series of anti-government riots broke out in the cities, and local city councils (Comunidades) took power. On April 21, the remaining administrators were driven from the fortifications of the Alcázar of Toledo. It was here that the revolt of the Comuneros of 1781 began against the oppression of Spanish rule. However, he also provoked former comuneros. After royalist troops burned the town of Mora on April 12, Acuña returned to the countryside with roughly 1,500 men under his command. Zúñiga was a prior in the Knights of St. John, who maintained a base in Castile at the time. Spain also created trading companies, allowed for agricultural and industrial "royal monopolies" and encouraged a greater amount of imports to the colonies to decrease the manufacturing capability of the colonies. [71], Acuña soon had to confront Antonio de Zúñiga, who had been appointed commander of the royalist army in the Toledo area. Even some monks began to agitate, denouncing the opulence of the royal court, the Flemish, and the nobility in their sermons. Outnumbered, the town nevertheless resisted for four days, thanks to its walls. The Revolt of the Comuneros (Spanish: Guerra de las Comunidades de Castilla, "War of the Communities of Castile") was an uprising by citizens of Castile against the rule of Charles I and his administration between 1520 and 1521. This raised enthusiasm among the commoners, who received him with cheers, but aroused suspicion in the aristocracy. [19] A citizen's committee was elected under the leadership of Juan López de Padilla and Pedro Laso de la Vega, naming themselves a Comunidad. Some were long-standing, related to the viceroyalty in New Granada in 1717. [104] The decline of Castilian liberty was linked to the later decline of Spain. Support from these urban elites was critical to Ferdinand and Isabella's centralization of power, and they acted as a counterweight to the landed aristocracy and the clergy. Two new figures emerged within the Comunidades, Pedro Girón and Antonio Osorio de Acuña. Charles left Spain in 1520 to. The town was very influential in the history of Colombia. [93], Some of the reforms of Isabella I which reduced noble power were reversed as a price for luring the nobility to the royalist side. Charles had been raised in the Netherlands with little knowledge of Castilian. Prohibit money from leaving the kingdom to fund foreign affairs. Designate a Castilian to lead the kingdom in the absence of the king. Despite coming from the upper classes of society, the rebels introduced the idea of unifying and organising the diverse social classes comprising common people; the endorsement of the elites improved the rebels' efforts to unify, where Berbeo consolidated 10,000 to 20,000 rebel troops to march on Bogotá, the capital. They were tasked with expelling royalists, collecting taxes on behalf of the Junta, and creating an administration sympathetic to the comuneros cause. The rebels chose Charles' own mother, Queen Joanna, as an alternative ruler, hoping they could control her madness. Brian R. Hamnett, (1980). Díez praised the comuneros on behalf of the liberal government in power at the time, likely the first positive governmental recognition for their cause. [83], María Pacheco took control of the city and the remains of the rebel army, living in the Alcázar, collecting taxes, and strengthening defenses. The Revolt of the Comuneros (Spanish: Guerra de las Comunidades de Castilla, "War of the Communities of Castile") was an uprising by citizens of Castile against the rule of Charles I and his administration between 1520 and 1521. [26] Fonseca arrived on August 21 in Medina, but encountered heavy resistance from the townspeople, as the city had strong trade links to Segovia. Embarrassingly large numbers of important people had supported the comuneros, or at least were suspiciously slow to declare allegiance to the king, and Charles thought it unwise to press the issue too much. The army of the comuneros fell apart. The character of the revolution is a matter of historiographical debate. The Paraguayan revolt of 1721-1735 was the first of sev-eral events that presaged the Hispanic American Inde-pendence movements of the early nineteenth century. He believes that the imperialism of the Spanish home country and its dependence upon the colonies contributed for the need of the colonies' "decentralization." The second half of the 15th century saw profound political, economic, and social changes in Spain. The revolt, fresh in the memory of Spain, is referenced in several literary works during Spain's Golden Age. The Constable of Castile moved his troops (including soldiers recently transferred from the defense of Navarre) southwest from Burgos to meet with the Admiral's forces near Tordesillas. Another truce was granted, and while the former comuneros were defeated, the distraction was exploited by María Pacheco to escape to Portugal disguised as a farmer. Among the most scandalous of these was the appointment of the twenty-year-old William de Croÿ as Archbishop of Toledo. The defenders did secure an agreement to spare half of the goods inside the castle, thus avoiding further looting. Torrelobatón was a stronghold halfway between Tordesillas and Medina de Rioseco, and was very close to Valladolid. The rebel movement took on a radical anti-feudal dimension, supporting peasant rebellions against the landed nobility. On April 23, 1976, a small ceremony was held clandestinely in Villalar; only two years later, in 1978, the event had become a huge demonstration of 200,000 in support of Castilian autonomy. The only way to enforce their demands was by using weapons, and they never hesitated to do so. This article incorporates text translated from the, This page was last edited on 5 January 2021, at 03:32. The Royal Council was re-established in the fief of Admiral Enríquez, Medina de Rioseco, which enabled the Council to be nearer to the revolting cities and reassure skeptical supporters. The Revolt of the Comuneros (Spanish: Guerra de las Comunidades de Castilla, "War of the Communities of Castile") was an uprising by citizens of Castile against the rule of Charles V and his administration between 1520 and 1521. [32] On September 24, 1520, the mad Queen, for the only time, presided over the Cortes. Discontent had been brewing for years before the Revolt of the Comuneros. In Valladolid, the Junta proposed to Antonio de Acuña that he submit himself as a candidate for the seat. He prepared to head to Germany to take possession of his new domains in the Holy Roman Empire. The royal army slipped away by nightfall, and Mormojón was forced to pay tribute to avoid being pillaged. [43] In turn, dissenting voices inside the comuneros now began to be heard, especially in Burgos. They proffered five goals: These claims, especially the first two, spread quickly through society. There were an estimated 500–1,000 rebel casualties and many desertions. On March 16, 1781, in Socorro in northeastern Colombia, grocer Manuela Beltrán tore down posted edicts about new tax increases and other changes that would have reduced the profits of the colonists and enlarged the benefits of Spain. The influence of the revolt led to similar uprisings, with a similar outcome, as far north as Mérida and Timotes, now in Venezuela but at the time under jurisdiction of the Viceroyalty of New Granada.[6]. [59][62], After abandoning the siege of Burgos due to the failure of its revolt, Padilla decided to return to Valladolid, while Acuña opted to resume his skirmishing and harassment of noble properties around Tierra de Campos. [7] At first, Charles seemed not to grasp the magnitude of the revolt. José Antonio Galán, one of the leaders of the revolt, continued on with a small number of rebels, including Jose Manuel Ortiz Manosalvas, but they were quickly defeated and executed, while other leaders of the rebellion were sentenced for life in prison for treason. [72] Acuña received information that Zúñiga was in the area of Corral de Almaguer, and pursued battle with him near Tembleque. The Constable of Castile began to send troops to the Tordesillas area to contain the rebels and prevent any further advances. Since most of the kingdom was represented at Tordesillas, the Junta renamed itself the Cortes y Junta General del Reino ("General Assembly of the Kingdom"). With the coming of the summer in Spain, Adrian had resorted to violence t… Charles ensured the Cortes would only have limited power, and further attempted to stack the Cortes with pliable representatives he could bribe. [62], After the recent setbacks suffered by the comuneros, Padilla realized that they needed a victory to raise morale. [63], On February 21, 1521, the siege of Torrelobatón began. [44], Following this incident, the Royal Council hoped that other cities would imitate Burgos and leave the comuneros peacefully. Venezuela--History--Insurrection of the Comuneros, 1781; Closely Matching Concepts from Other Schemes. A series of reforms to the economy and government of the colonies, now called the Bourbon Reforms, are believed to be a factor. Only Madrid and Toledo kept their Comunidades alive. She would remain there for thirty-five years, the rest of her life. Cancel the taxes voted in the Cortes of Corunna. [17] He convened them again in Corunna on April 22, this time getting his program passed. The first great revolt of comuneros in Spain was the uprising (1520–21) of the comunidades (autonomous cities) of Castile against the measures of Emperor Charles V . [85] María Pacheco continued her presence in the city and refused to hand over all the hidden weapons until Charles V personally signed the agreements reached with the Order of St. John. Thus, on October 31 the comuneros left the Alcázar of Toledo and new officials were appointed to run the city. [27] Fonseca had to withdraw his troops, and the event was a public relations disaster for the government. In the Revolt of the Comuneros in Paraguay, the rebels did not take the name willingly; it was only meant to disparage them as traitors. This is the first complete account in English of the Comunero Revolt and will serve as a companion to Lillian Fisher’s The Last Inca Revolt, 1780-1783(Norman, 1966). On April 23, 1521, after nearly a year of rebellion, the reorganized supporters of the emperor struck a crippling blow to the comuneros at the Battle of Villalar. It argued three points: any new taxes should be rejected; Castile should be embraced and the foreign Empire rejected; and if the king did not take into account his subjects, the Comunidades themselves should defend the interests of the kingdom. Acuña was also the head of the Comunidad in Zamora and the leader of its army, which included more than 300 priests. [41] This negated two of the most salient complaints of the rebels. Those who favored war were divided between two tactics: occupy Simancas and Torrelobatón, a less ambitious proposal defended by Pedro Laso de la Vega; or lay siege to Burgos, a tactic favored by Padilla. While underlying causes may have been economic, ideas of freedom and self-government were expressed. Charles was brought up in Flanders, the homeland of his father Philip, and barely knew Castilian. [84], The new administrator of Toledo restored order and brought the city back under royal control. [62], Meanwhile, the rebellion in Burgos scheduled for January 23 was a failure due to poor coordination with the besieging army; it started two days early and was easily crushed. Most important was the appointment of two new Castilian co-regents: the Constable of Castile, Íñigo Fernández, and the Admiral of Castile, Fadrique Enríquez. Many other towns in New Granada began to have the same occurrences with colonists livid about the conditions of the ruling government. The Revolt of the Comuneros (Spanish language: Guerra de las Comunidades de Castilla, "War of the Communities of Castile") was an uprising by citizens of Castile against the rule of Charles V and his administration between 1520 and 1521. Once the rebels defeated the rival soldiers sent from Bogotá, they reached a town slightly north of it, where Spanish officials agreed to meet with the Comuneros and sign an agreement stating the conditions and complaints of the rebels. [66] Meanwhile, the comuneros reinforced their troops at Torrelobatón, which was far less secure than the comuneros preferred. The Revolt of the Comuneros was an uprising by the inhabitants of the Viceroyalty of New Granada (now Colombia and parts of Venezuela) against the Spanish authorities in 1781. [106] Drawing on collected original sources, Danvila emphasized the fiscal demands of the comuneros, and cast them as traditionalist, reactionary, medieval, and feudal. New members now joined the Junta of Ávila and the Royal Council looked discredited; Adrian had to flee to Medina de Rioseco as Valladolid fell. [1], However, with Isabella I's death and Joanna's accession in 1504, this alliance between the national government and the budding middle class faltered. However, once the rebels disbanded, the Spanish government officials signed a document that discarded the agreement on the basis that it was forced upon them. Other cities began to follow suit. While underlying causes may have been economic, ideas of freedom and self-government were expressed. [35] A close correlation can be drawn between poor economic fortunes over the previous twenty years and the rebellion; central Castile suffered from agricultural failure and other setbacks under the Royal Council, while Andalusia was relatively prosperous with its maritime trade.
