Hello everyone! I’m AgentKitty and I would like to talk about 4 dates that were extremely special to Catalonia. Without these 4 dates it would of changed Catalonia completely.
1640, The War of the Reapers
The Reapers War took place in 1640 and ended in 1659. There is no specific number as to how many people died but we assume that over a billion people died. This war was very brutal and it was the start for a new era for Catalonia.
1687, Revolt of the Barrentinas
After the Reapers War, Catalonia faced something that they thought was against them. So what did they do? Well, they had a rebellion against the government. King Charles III wasn’t happy though. Catalonia had war with King Charles III. Luckily, Catalonia won. Let’s just say, it wasn’t a good idea to celebrate. They didn’t know what was awaiting them.
1714, The Big War
This war was very important. Without this war, Catalonia wouldn’t want independence. This is when Spain absorbed and conquered Catalonia. At that time, it wasn’t really a big deal because other things were occurring such as Queen Anne and Phillippe V having war because Queen Anne didn’t want him to be king. This was major for Catalonia though.
1937, the dark ages
Around those times, Catalonia was facing its darkest moments. Franco was just dominating Catalonia. The culture was gone and the language was at stake. Even some Catalonian names were banned. Ever since Franco’s death, Catalonia has its own architect, language, power and culture.
So those are the four dates. What do you think off them? If it was your choice to if you want Catalonia too stay of leave what would you say? There’s been a rift in which, between the unity and perimeters, Catalonia just wants its own land. Barely anyone, however, say they want to stay in Catalonia and Spain.
