Pre-Columbian society in the wooded, fertile region which is now present-day Paraguay consisted of seminomadic, Guarani-speaking tribes, who were recognized for their fierce warrior traditions. Europeans first arrived in the area in the early sixteenth century and the settlement of Asuncin was founded on August 15, 1537 by the Spanish explorer Juan de Salazar y Espinoza.

Paraguay declared its independence after overthrowing the local Spanish administration on May 14, 1811.
