History[edit | edit source]
Minas Geraisball born as a 3ball, adopted by Kingdom of Portugalball, Brazilian Empireball and Brazilball.
It began to be explored for the first time in century XVI, when the bandeirantes entered the region in search of gold. Its first village was founded in 1711.
Even with the extraction, Kingdom of Portugalball created rigid ways to collect more taxes on minerals, and made it difficult to develop other activities that could guarantee more income to the province, such as food, tobacco, cotton and sugar exports.
The neglect of ] Kingdom of Portugalball ended up provoking one of the main anti-colonial movements of the eighteenth century: the Inconfidência Mineira. Inspired by the French Revolution of 1789, several intellectuals, religious leaders, and landowners met with the intention of ridding the state of Kingdom of Portugalball 's rule. The spread of republican ideals left the Lusitanian monarchy on alert, mainly with the suspicion of conspiracies that threatened the stability of the government.
In this uprising movement, the leader, Tiradentes, was betrayed and murdered in front of the crowd by hanging on April 21, 1792.
With the embargoes around the ore, Minas Gerais only managed to stabilize its economy with the commercialization of coffee, which gave gas to the massive investment in transportation and the export of the product to other regions.
At the beginning of the 20th century, coffee was the main product of the country, making the state become one of the most significant powers (besides São Pauloball).
After the Republic was established, Minas Geraisball divided its presidency with São Pauloball.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Minas Gerais likes its pão de queijo (a bread made of cheese), milk, and coffee, especially because of its massive production of these. Like other states, it has its own accent and is known for summing up a few words, and their pronunciation is casually related or confused with countryside pronunciation.
