What is happening in Spain and Portugal in 1914CE

In Spain, a republic was declared in 1873, but the situation quickly deteriorated into regional rebellion. A military coup the following year restored the monarchy in the person of Alfonso XII (reigned 1874-85) and Alfonso XIII (from 1886), whose popularity have given Spain a stretch of political stability and economic growth. Overseas, however, the Spanish have lost the last of their colonies in Latin America – Cuba and Puerto Rico – as well as the Philippines, in a short, sharp war with the USA (1898).

In Portugal, growing factionalism at the royal court has led to the overthrow of the monarchy in 1910, and the setting up of a republic. Overseas, Portugal has extended its rule into the interior of the African territories of Angola and Mozambique.
