Life of Simon Bolivar - Detective Work Studios
Sherlock rambles on about 18th and 19th century battle-lines and the Battle of Valencia while Nathan provides a solid chat on the establishment of the first government of the Patria Boba and the landing of Monteverde's Marines.
The Patria Boba is born on July 5th, 1811 as Bolivar and Miranda's relationship starts to fray and the Venezuelan Junta begins its series of blunders. However, independence comes for the first time to Spanish America!
We discuss Bolivar's trip to London, his dealings in the great city, his return to Venezuela, the beginning of the First Republic and Bolivar's dealings with such.
We discuss the fall of Spain, the spark for the independence movements in both Spanish America and Spain, the Buenos Aires rebellions, why the UK/GB is annoying, and what Bolivar is doing as all of this is happening.
We discuss Bolivar's meeting with the Pope in 1806, Miranda's failed expedition, his return to Paris, his trip to the US of A, and his soon to be return to Venezuela!
Nathan and Sherlock discuss Bolivar's stay in Paris, his reaction to Napoleon, his walk to Italy and his first meetings and interactions there.
This week we discuss the marriage and sudden death of Maria del Toro, Bolivar's motto, his grieving, return to Europe and his beginnings in Paris. Link DumpFanny PackBolivar's Mustache #1Bolivar's Mustache #2Bolivar's Mustache #3
Bolivar sets sail for Spain, does a pit-stop in Mexico, almost dies from starvation, almost dies from a run in with a prince, gets edjumacated, meets the Queen and sees the motherland for what it truly is: a farce. Link DumpI found a copy of Simon Boliva
