Stroessner
“Although Paraguay grew prosperous under Stroessner's rule, his regime's iron rule and harsh suppression of the opposition fueled popular protests beginning in the late 1960s. Stroessner's administration strove to establish close economic ties with neighboring countries. Paraguay, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, and Uruguay signed the La Plata Basin Act (1968), which advocated joint development in the La Plata River Basin and was designed to stimulate South America's economy. In the early 1980s, Paraguay, in a joint venture with Brazil, built Itaipu, the world's largest hydroelectric dam.”
1993 first democratic president since independence

José Gaspar Rodríguez de Francia


By 1809, Francia was head of the Asuncíon town council. As an ardent nationalist, he criticized Spain and attempts by Argentina to control his homeland. Under Spanish rule, many Paraguayans suffered from high taxes and strict trade regulations. After Napoleon I invaded Spain, the colonial system crumbled rapidly. In July 1810, revolutionaries pushed for the independence of Spanish America, and their army defeated a force invading from Buenos Aires. In June 1811, the Paraguayans officially declared their independence, and Francia emerged as the nation's prominent leader with control over the army.

Paraguay Background

Paraguay Background | MKParaguayRevolution | Scoop.it

To convert the indigenous Guaraní people to Catholicism, the Spanish Jesuit priests employed the Guaraní language. As a result, Guaraní became Paraguay’s dominant language. It is spoken by more than 90 percent of the population, most of whom do not have indigenous roots, and is recognized alongside Spanish as an official language by the government.
