The response of the Russian Decembrists to Spanish politics in the age of Ferdinand VII
Palabras clave:Decembrists, European liberal movements after the Napoleonic Wars, Russian constitutional projects, Russian political thought, Russo-Spanish historical contacts
The article begins by describing the so-called Decembrist Revolt, a mutiny of Russian officers in 1825. It then examines the development of secret societies in Russia after the Napoleonic Wars and the various internal causes of the revolt, before focusing on the external context of the revolt, especially events in Spain during the Napoleonic period and in the decade following Napoleon’s defeat. In particular, the article discusses the extent to which Decembrists made use of the constitution promulgated in 1812 in Cádiz in their own constitutional projects, the significance that the Decembrists attached to the Spanish rising of 1820 against the restored Bourbon monarchy, and the effect that the suppression of the Spanish liberal experiment in 1823 had on them.
