Abstract

This article analyses the genesis of the Spanish I Republic (1873) starting from the Democratic Revolution initiated in 1868 with the overthrow of the Bourbon monarchy. This initiated a process of democratisation and of citizens’ participation in Spanish public life that took form in a new constitution, inspired by some of the proposals of the United States Constitution as a model of federation, and in which we find one of the most advanced declarations of citizens’ rights in Europe at that time.
