Abstract

This paper focuses on some groups of Bonapartist veterans who, between 1815 and 1820, left Italian coasts and took part in the struggle for the emancipation of Nueva Granada and Río de la Plata. These fighters acted as trans-national actors across state and imperial borders, connecting ideals, myths, and military practices between the Old Continent and the New World. On the South American battlefields, they also shared a precise set of values, such as bravery, brotherhood, and honor with a large group of European mercenaries, contributing to transform the anti-Bourbon cause in a trans-Atlantic question
