213 years of history


The Chilean Army is proud to be one of the permanent institutions in the 213 years of republican life, during which it has been present in all the great milestones of its political, economic and social trajectory, with the certainty that in the present and in the future, the new generations that make up its ranks will continue to be committed to the security, defense, peace and well-being of the Homeland.

This trajectory has been reflected in the consistent contribution of the Institution to the development of the country throughout its history, thus contributing to the genuine spirit of nationality.

It is worth mentioning that this historical commitment is even older, since it originates in the first manifestations of the formation of a permanent Army, when, by Royal Decree of 1603, the first Army of the Kingdom of Chile was born.
