In the practice, this siege meant that Uruguay had two parallel governments:
- Gobierno de la Defensa in Montevideo, led by Joaquín Suárez (1843–1852)
- Gobierno del Cerrito (with headquarters at the present neighbourhood Cerrito de la Victoria), ruling the rest of the country, led by Manuel Oribe (1843–1851)
- Walter Rela (1998). Uruguay: República Oriental del Uruguay, 1830-1864. Montevideo: ALFAR.
