Paez's Revolt in Venezuela 1848-1849

[ 1848 ]

Jose Antonio Paez (1790-1873), leader of the Conservatives, dominated Venezuela either as the country's president or power broker from 1830 to 1848, a period of political stability and economic progress. His friend General Jose Tadeo Monagas (1784-1868), who was elected Venezuelan president as a Conservative in 1846, broke with Paez when he appointed Liberals as ministers. The Conservative congress was angered, and Paez led supporters in revolt against Monagas, whose forces were victorious; Paez went into exile. Between 1848 and 1858, Venezuela was under the dictatorial rule of either Monagas or his brother, Jose Gregorio Monagas (1795-1858), who alternated in the country's highest office and tried to lengthen the presidential term from four to six years.
