Government Junta of Chile said that Chile was a autonomous republic that was apart of the Spanish Monarchy.

After these events there was a movement that was working towards total independance.

February 12th 1818 Chile recieved total independance. After this there was little change in the social aspect.

"Chilean society preserved the essence of the stratified colonial social structure, which was greatly influenced by family politics and the Roman Catholic Church. A strong presidency eventually emerged, but wealthy landowners remained powerful."
