Abstract

Bonapartists revolutionary dreams did not end in Waterloo. Facing with the European Restoration, adventurism through Spanish colonies became an instrument for legitimizing the anti-absolutist ideal, shaping national patriotisms, and promoting insurrectionary practices. Participation in the struggle for independence in Latin America even contributed, I suggest, to the formation of an «anti-Bourbon international» which, in the following years, would take part in the liberal movements in the Mediterranean area and led the struggle against European monarchies. These experiences of entanglements ideologically and politically anticipated the emergence of patriotic brotherhoods that will characterize the struggle for liberties in the Atlantic world until the end of the 19th-century. Figures such as Lajos Kossuth or Giuseppe Garibaldi were they direct and legendary successors
