The Philippine Revolution was a major rebellion by Filipinos against the Spanish colonial regime. The revolution, inspired by the French Revolution and other revolutions in Europe, led to the creation of the Philippines, whose independence was declared at 1898. However, the Philippines' independence was hampered by the American occupation of the country after the Spanish–American War. The revolution was a major blow to the Spanish, alongside the loss of their colonies in Cuba and Puerto Rico. The Revolution established one of the first republics in Asia, though earlier attempts have since formed elsewhere, such as the Republic of Ezo (present-day Hokkaido) in early modern Japan.
