The Proclamation of the Republic was a significant event in the history of Brazil. It was a military coup d'état that occurred on November 15, 1889, which established the First Brazilian Republic, known as República Velha (Old Republic), overthrowing the constitutional monarchy of the Empire of Brazil and ending the reign of Emperor Pedro II.
The proclamation of the Republic took place in Rio de Janeiro, then capital of the Empire of Brazil, when a group of military officers of the Brazilian Army, led by Marshal Deodoro da Fonseca, staged a coup d'état without the use of violence, deposing the Emperor of Brazil, Pedro II, and the President of the Council of Ministers of the Empire, the Viscount of Ouro Preto.
