Abstract

During the period of the French occupation in Spain, various political forces sought to fill the power vacuum caused by Napoleon Bonaparte’s capture of the legitimate monarch, Ferdinand VII. Projects were discussed and presented in new spaces, created from the crisis of the Old Regime. In consequence, counterrevolutionary groups also made use of the new tools created by advocates of political innovation. The purpose of this paper is to analyze how the clash between the Spanish Third Regency and the Cadiz Cortes influenced the publications of the servil periodical El Procurador General de la Nación y del Rey. This periodical received funding from the Third Regency during part of its publications and the purpose of this text is to point out the situations in which this link was possibly most evident.
