The most notorious similarity is that they started from the people tired of the empires, of the explorations.


Compared to the Spanish Colonies, Brazil stayed as a empire until 1889, with Dom Predo II, which was "asked" to leave the country forever. At that time, Brazil was the only empire, nonetheless, the only one really close to a republic.

Thus, spite of the differences, they all emerged from the chase to end the colonization process, to create the republic, many of them inspired by France and USA. Further, they all resulted in the end of the old regimen, of the people fighting against its own regimen.
