Until the last half-century of Spanish rule, large-scale popular rebellion was all but unknown in Spanish America. During the mid-seventeenth century, the Spanish Habsburg monarchy had suffered several serious challenges to its authority in its European realms, with rebellions in Catalonia and Portugal in 1640, Naples and Palermo in 1647, and, to a lesser extent, Andalusia in 1650-1651. Spain's American dominions had, however, been undisturbed by disorders of comparable magnitude. Major riots occurred in Mexico City in 1624 and 1698, but Spanish America saw no great regional uprisings of the kind that shook the Habsburg monarchy in Europe until long after the accession of the Bourbon dynasty to the Spanish throne in 1700.
