me parece un bonito blog, pero no puedo evitar sentirme deprimida al ver que Chile no esta entre los amigos de Argentina siendo que hasta en la guerra de las malvinas moralmente los apoyamos a ustedes TT.TT ¡¿esto es por las malvinas?!, porque para Chile ustedes son nuestro amigos a pesar de todo ( ya se sabe algunos argentinos sobrados que se creen el centro del queque y los que dicen odiarnos por las malvinas) de todas formas ya me di cuenta que es cierto lo que dicen:
Para los Chilenos Argentina si es importante, pero cuando es a la inversa la cosa cambia U.U
(( ainssdjkfd noooh linda ay perdón creo que acá hay un malentendido.
Chile sí es amigo de Argentina, y a pesar de sus peleas, ¡Argentina lo quiere mucho! La razón por la que Chile no está en este blog es porque yo no he diseñado un oc para ese país, no es que Chile no sea su amigo
Hace dos años, cuando le puse nombre a este blog, usé “Argentina and Friends” porque sonaba bonito y amigable para referirme al grupito de mi oc de Argentina y mis ocs de sus países vecinos, pero técnicamente, tener a Malvinas aquí sería incorrecto porque ella y Argentina no son amigas. El blog debería llamarse “Ask my hetalia ocs” porque es eso, preguntas para los ocs que tengo, pero es más bonito el título que tiene hahah. Sin embargo, Argentina tiene muchos más amigos que los personajes que están en este blog, ¡Y Chile es uno de ellos!
¡Perdona si te has ofendido! ´n` Mi intención no es excluir a Chile, ni despreciarlo. En algunos asks sale mencionado, de hecho. Espero que te sientas mejor, Argentina no odia a Chile, y yo tampoco <3 Besitos ))
On this day in history September 7, 1822: On the banks of the Ipiranga River in São Paulo, Crown Prince Regent Pedro declared Brazil’s independence from Portugal.
The article Brazil’s Independence Day - September 7: Independência ou Morte by Bonnie Hamre from the Go SouthAmerica About webpage briefly describes some of the events that led to Brazil’s Declaration of Independence by Prince Regent Pedro:
With Napoleon and the Peninsular Wars, and the invasion and occupation of Spain and Portugal, Dom João VI, the seventeenth king of Portugal, fled Lisbon and established his court in Rio de Janeiro, where for the next 13 years, he ruled Portugals Asian, African, and American colonies. Although Dom João VI (1769-1826) never ruled over an independent Brazil, historians call him the “Founder of the Brazilian Nationality.” One of his major contributions to the growth of Brazil was opening the colony’s ports to free trade with friendly nations, thus signaling a marked change in trade and the resulting improved consequence of Brazil. Additionally, Dom João VI spearheaded the founding of the Academia Naval (Naval Academy), Hospital Militar (Military Hospital), Arquivo Militar (Military Archives), Jardim Botânico (Botanic Garden), Intendência Geral de Polícia (Police Commissariat), Real Biblioteca (Royal Library), the Banco do Brasil (Bank of Brazil), and the gunpowder factory. With the defeat of Napoleon in 1815, he thought it safe to make Brazil another kingdom equal to Portugal. He also decided to remain in Brazil.
The Portuguese government disagreed with both decisions and in 1820 sent troops to assist his relocation to Portugal where the army headed a revolution designed to bring about a constitutional government with Dom João as the constitutional monarch. Dom João returned to Portugal, leaving his 23-year-old son Pedro as prince regent of Brazil. Pedro actively engaged in enlisting support from both able advisors and the people of Brazil.
With revolutions and the desire for independence active in other Latin American countries, Pedro realized Brazil would soon wish for the same. With the support of the Brazilian people and the Brazilian Senate who had bestowed on him the title of Defensor e Protetor Perpétuo do Brasil, Protector and Perpetual Defender of Brazil, he defied an order to return to Portugal. When the Portuguese parliament wished to return Brazil to colonial status, Pedro seized the moment. On September 7, 1822, after receiving orders from the Portuguese parliament limiting his powers in Brazil, Pedro declared Brazils independence near the Ipiranga River in São Paulo. Tearing the Portuguese blue and white insignia from his uniform, Pedro drew his sword, and swore: “By my blood, by my honor, and by God: I will make Brazil free.” Their motto, he said, would be Independência ou Morte, Independence or Death! This statement is known as the Grito do Ipiranga.
Pedro de Alcântara Francisco Antônio João Carlos Xavier de Paula Miguel Rafael Joaquim José Gonzaga Pascoal Cipriano Serafim de Bragança e Bourbom, became Dom Pedro I, the first emperor of Brazil and ruled for nine years.
Brazil’s independence was officially Britain and Portugal via the Treaty of Rio de Janeiro on August 29, 1825.

I’m sorry anon, but I get quite a few asks per day and, if you say it’s been a while, your question is probably deep down in my inbox. I don’t answer them in order, I answer them when I have the motivation to do so. I don’t remember what you asked but the Paraguay war is a very complex matter and I can’t answer something like it so lightly.
Sorry, you’ll have to wait. This blog is a place for my own enjoyment, not my homework. Don’t rush me; the answer will eventually come. I guess haha I have unanswered asks since 2012 ;P
