Hetalia Mexico and the spanish civil war by chaos-dark-lord Hetalia Mexico and the spanish civil war by chaos-dark-lord
Someone ask for this a while ago (curiously it was someone from Argentina).

Consider that if there is someone that Knows how horrible is a civil war that one is México (and Russia and France too) , keep in mind that the mexican revolution is the bloddiest war ever fought in America, its number of deaths reached millions and destroyed the country.


----------------------------------- MEXICO AND THE SPANICH CIVIL WAR

That´s as close as México has ever come to forgive Spain , truth told, that was also a political move, México had just finished the revolution and the maximato (a period where president Calles govermentfrom the shadows) and needed to show himself as a strong, stable and decided nation. When the spanish civil war started, México used the oportunity to act.

Since México was under a socialist regime (more or less) under president Lazaro Cardenas he couldn´t support Franco, so he supportted the republicans, and was basically the only country that stated his suppor (Russia who was against facism did so too later).

Remmember that this happened just before ww2, the tensions where really high and everyone was on edge and preparing for it, any declaration of support could have started the war a bit earlier and Germany was already on his own thing.

The spanish civil war was fought also under the curtain by other coutries , England tried to impose a naval blockeade (it failed) because France was selling weapons to Spain (at the beginning) , the Axis was secretely supporting Franco, USA was bullying latinoamerica to stop them from helping Spain and everyone but México and later Russia declared themselves neutral in this issue.

HOW DID MEXICO HELPED.

First of all México offered asylum and shelter, specially to kids , hundreds came and the mayority stayed in México or came back later to settle themselves here (México does this refugees of the world, and inmigrants or migrants, by law) .

Second by providing ammunitions, supplies, soldiers, weapons, and even bought things from other countries in his own name to later pass them to the spaniards.

And also there are many pressumptions of mexicans in Europe being spies and México sending bullets prohibed by the Ginebra convention, but we´re so good that no has ever proven it ;)

This is an article (in spanish) that explain good enought and is not that long [link]

Here is a small video explaining a bit of the spanish civil war and 2 songs of the time, I suggest you to look for a remix or rock version of this songs:

Ironía de la vida ..... los paises europeos ni quisieron ayudar al Toño .... hasta romano lo traicionó.... y eso q siempre puso a romano en primer lugar en su vida .... los únicos q ayudaron a España en la guerra civil fueron las colonias a las q sometió y explotó...... Chile /Manu 🇨🇱 también recibió a varios españoles exiliados.....

1. Spain sucks XD
2.Spain was the less genocided european country(the curious were more genocide with themselves than with the indigenousXDDD),it was more a conquest than a colonization. The spaniards allied with tribes and sub-civs,someones for the opression from aztec, incas or mayas, for that so fast expansion,oh surprise!!!all the empires do wars and opress another nations.But the stupid Spain stablished rights to the indigenous peoples, and their lands and cultures were conserved until the independization of latin countries, in the independization the govern were formed by 'liberal' (for money)burghers that promoted the movement,for that the indigenous lost their lands and  their cultures starting to disappear, this was one of the reasons why there were indians that were in the spanish side. You can see in USA the few indigenous that left in, thanks to the erradication and use of big ammounts of africa slaves we could have a fast development.
3.USA and UK helped to spread the black legend
4.All America should have been colonized by the english,that would be fun XDDDD
5.I find this post searching for a hetalia's comic of mexico and the wall that Trump want build

La verdad es que los españoles aún pagamos en verguenza el genocidio humano y cultural de la America precolombina, pero la misma mentalidad que llevó a este genocidio hizo derramar mucha sangre en España, la guerra civil es un ejemplo de ello, terminamos siendo víctimas de lo peor de nosotros mismos. Pero creo que también se debe tener en cuenta ciertas carácteristicas de la colonizaación española. España buscaba la ampliacion de territorio y recursos, pero también favorecía el mestizaje mientras que otros paises sólo querian los recursos y la población indigéna le era totalmente prescindible. La conquista era la ley de aquel tiempo, por lamentable que fuese, alguien habría llegado a Mexico antes o después y según que pais hubiese sido el resultado podría haber sido aún peor. Tal vez no tanto en el aspecto cultural, porque los españoles llevabamos con nosotros mucho cura chiflado que destruyeron gran parte del légado de civilizaciones enteras, es posible que otros paises se hubiesen sentido más proclives a conservarlo, pero en el aspecto humano habría sido aún peor.
Me ha gustado recordar que Mexico ayudo a España en un momento en que el resto del mundo la abandonó a su suerte, haber sido capaz de eso incluso a pesar del compresible resentimiento hacia España dice mucho de Mexico.
Espero que cuando Mexico aparezca en la serie se parezca a tu diseño, me ha gustado mucho :happybounce:

De hecho cuando yo me entere de que habiamos ayudado a españa en la guerra civil interna te juro que casi lanzo el libro al rostro del maestro. Yo sigo sin perdonarlos, estoy de acuerdo con que hayamos resivido refugiados, siempre lo hemos hecho pero ¡Armas! Enserio?! Pero bueno sigo amando la representacion de la historia en tus comis. Es genial!!!!!

Una cosa que leí hace tiempo, México fue el ÚNICO país que jamás reconoció el gobierno de Franco como legítimo. (Porque no lo era), y México fue refugio para el gobierno republicano en el exilio. Pocos españoles saben eso y pocos españoles honran a México por ello... Si bien es verdad que hablar de la Guerra Civil en España es casi un delito. 

Sólo un detalle sobre el cómic, y es que en la primera viñeta la bandera republicana en 1936 no era la rojigualda, sino la tricolor, roja, amarilla y púrpura.

Yeah, hetalia needs more latins, It seems that in the 5th season there will appear at least 2-3 latinamerican countries, I guess Brazil and México, perhaps Argentina or Panama are the most likely candidates.

Not only helping, but receiving A LOT OF INMIGRANTS, México a bit less due to the drug war, but even so due to the lack of work there were getting more. Actually Brazil is "suffering" from it, due to Brazil´s boom, spaniards used they tourists visa´s to enter Brazil to get a job, however Spain was being an ass about the visa requirements for brazilians, so Brazil decided to apply those same requirements for Spaniards.

Yeah, I heard. These Europeans need to understand that they need to help us too if they want us to help them. Especially our "daddy" Spain. (For me our home country is our mother). Well, that was fair of Brasil. They're right.

Yes, I know a bunch of references, but hey are in Spanish I´m afraid, if you want them I can pass them to you.

The jews weren´t that muchof an issue, México has always received refuges, and the main refuges during the spanish civil war were the kids from the republicans, then after Franco, México received the ex-franquistas...
better check program, this is about the spanish inmigrants to México in the last century [link] , it speaks about those from the spanish civil war, an this one is about the germans [link] (the mayority of jew refuges were from Germany) , but as I said, they´re in spanish.

Angola does speak Portuguese along with some other countries colonized by Portugal like Mozambique,Guinea-Bissau,East Timor...and some places like Goa that is in India and Macaw,which is in China.
And I know that Portuguese and Spanish are very alike.So much that on a region of Spain called Galicia ( on Portugal´s north border ) people speak a language called galego-portugues,which mixes Portuguese and Spanish very well!;)

chaos-dark-lord Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Nope, México has not forgiven Spain (and probably never will forgive him completely), however due to the 200 years of independence anyversary in 2010 at least México has began to understand that who he is know is the mixture of both prehispanic and hispanic heritage and its slowly (and reluctantly) beggining to appreciate the hispanic parts like arts.

I love this deviation, it shows all the postures during the Spanish Civil War. The only thing i can see is that you use the present spanish flag. Our flag during the II Spanish Republic had three colors (red, yellow and purple). Poor Spain.

Not exactly, México still recents the colonial times a lot and still has a deep grudge, however Spain is also like the 4th commercial partner for México and despite the past and unlike USA, México somehow still has some sort of morals... sometimes.... maybe?

I always imagined that there were two Spains (in Hetalia terms):

"Spain" - Represents Isabelline, Alfonsine and Republican Spain (as well as modern day Spain)
"Nationalist Spain" - Represents the "old" Spain, including the Carlists and the Fascists. This was the Spain that did all the terrible things to the Latin American colonies. He's "Spain's" older brother.

Hmm...you know what, I might do a profile for my idea of Hetalia Spain. >=)

I think that rather than 2 Spains there was one but he was staying "forcefully" with Franco (like a hostage of sorts).

If you do that profile send me the link ;)
