Identifying Villa Carlota: German Settlements in Yucatán, México, During the Second Empire (1864-1867)

  • Contrary to what was believed, there were German colonists in Mexico. Between 1865 and 1867, more than 400 German-speaking people of modest origins were brought to Yucatan, Mexico, by Emperor Maximilian.

The present study analyzes their migration and settlement process.
