History

In 1927, The king of Spain was deposed, and a republic was established.

New Spain kept her status as a Viceroyalty of the Kingdom of Spain, not recognizing the republican government that had been established on the Spanish mainland. The Spanish Republic, OTOH, considered New Spain and other overseas territories as rebel provinces.

In 1946, following diplomatic agreements, New Spain was declared independent and the current viceroy, Leonardo Pérez, was crowned as King under the blessing of the Bourbon family.
