Today in class, Paqui has begun bringing the exam we did on Thursday and then gave us the notebooks.
Then, we have put in groups to continue the project.
My group is made up of three people: Lucia, Benjamin and me.
The first day of work, we say that the first thing we had to do was make all the dialogues and dirty drawings, and so we did.
Other groups have begun preparing the material on which they were going to write.
We are finishing the first point: CHARLES IV'S REIGN (1788-1808).
Charles IV's reing was strongly influenced in France. In 1793 Spain declared war to the revolutionary France and Manuel Godoy subordinated the Spanish foreign policy to the French interests.
In 1805 Spain and France declared war to the United Kingdom, but the Spanish Armada was defeated in Trafalgar. In October 1807 Godoy signed the Teatry of Fontainebleau with Napoleon
Godoy feared tahat Napoleon wanted to occupy Spain and he moved the royal family to Aranjuez. The situation was used by Prince Ferdinand to prepare a conspiracy against his father. A mutiny started in Aranjuez, Godoy was fired and Charles IV abdicated on his son, who became Ferdinand VII. (Charles repented later and he asking to get the crown back)
The rumors of the abduction of the Spanish royal family provoked the uprising of the people of Madrid on the 2 May 1808 and the biginning of the Peninsular War.
In Bayonne Napoleon got Ferdinand VII and Charles VI's renounce to the Spanish crown and he gave the crown to his brother Joseph Bonaparte, who reigned as Joseph I.
