This article describes the multiple efforts undertaken by Creole elites to organize a new political order in New Granada between 1810 and 1816. It takes into account the complexity of these efforts and shows how, nonetheless, the political fragmentation into numerous local sovereignties, the weight of local identities and projects, as well as the bureaucratic appetites of Creole elites, paved the way for the failure of the first Republic in New Granada even before the reconquest.
