Honduras declared its independence from Spain on 15 September 1821. From 5 January 1822 to 1 July 1823 Honduras was part of the Mexican Empire of Agustín de Iturbide. On 1 July 1823 Honduras along the rest of Central American states (Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica) declared their independence from Mexico to form the short lived Federal Republic of Central America also known as United Provinces of Central America. Honduras remained as a member state until it decided to separate in 1838.
