In Chilean historiography the Conservative Republic was a period of the history of Chile that extended between 1830[1] and 1861, characterized by the hegemony of the conservative party, whose supporters were called pelucones. After the pelucones defeated the pipiolos in the Battle of Lircay on April 17, 1830, this formally became established in 1831 with the election of general José Joaquín Prieto as president of Chile.
