A common revolt in the eastern territories of the Kingdom of Hungary in 1437 was the Transylvanian peasant revolt , also known as the peasant revolt of Bábolna or the Bobâlna revolt (Romanian: Răscoala de la Bobâlna). The revolt broke out after George Lépes, the Bishop of Transylvania, had been unable to obtain the tithe for years due to the temporary weakening of the coinage, but then demanded arrears in one amount when the higher value coins were issued again.

Chile declares independence from Spain (National Day)
Chile broke from Spanish rule on 18 September 1810, declaring its independence. Since the middle of the 16th Century, the Spanish have controlled Chile. Other South American countries that revolted against colonial rule, the French and Spanish wars in Europe, and the election of an unpopular governor in 1808 had propelled the movement to independence.
Although Chileans celebrated their independence on September 18, their declaration in 1810 was the beginning of a long struggle, and the Chilean War of Independence lasted eight years until Chile was able to formally declare independence on February 12, 1818.
