For centuries the indigenous peoples of Venezuela lived by farming but also by hunting and fishing. Then in 1498 Christopher Columbus became the first European to reach Venezuela. In 1499 a Spaniard named Alonso de Ojeda led another expedition to the area. He called it Venezuela, meaning little Venice, after seeing huts on stilts. The Spanish founded their first town in Venezuela in 1521. They also began importing African slaves. However Venezuela was relatively unimportant to the Spanish.
On 5 July 1811 a national assembly declared Venezuela independent. However it was short lived. After a year Spanish forces were in control once again. Venezuela was finally liberated by Simon Bolivar in 1821. At first Venezuela was joined with Colombia and Ecuador as part of a state called Gran Colombia. However Gran Colombia soon broke up and Venezuela became completely independent in 1830.
During the 19th century Venezuela was ruled by military dictators called Caudillos. The first was Jos Antonio Paez. He ruled Venezuela until 1848. Venezuela then suffered civil wars. General Antonio Guzmn Blanco was caudillo from 1870-1888 and he restored order.
