ABSTRACT
The article focuses on political familialism in early nineteenth-century Chile and the relationship between the Chilean national government and family law. The author explains that familial rhetoric in state policy had become common throughout Chile at the time, due to the tyrannical patriarch of Spain's rule over the country. She discusses how Chilean families sought paternal governance after the war of independence, explores how family law and policy allowed for citizens to file lawsuits for economic family support, and examines how the welfare of the "national family" became central in nation-state formation.
