Due to the war of 1796 between Spain and England, Spanish ports were blockaded by British ships. The ominous consequences were soon to be seen on the enormous decrease of export goods taken to South America which led to a fatidic economic loss from which Spain never recovered. The situation worsened when Spain approved the Royal Resolution of November 18,1797 which broke up with the colonial pact in favor of an open trade for neutral countries in this war, of which North America was beneficiated. Problems aroused as to the legacy and convenience of this new trade. Not only were there economical matters at stake but political ones as well.
