ABSTRACT Slavery was a practice carried out in various forms and by different civilizations throughout history. Anti-slave ideas and movements began to emerge during the eighteenth century in England. These ideas were spread and the countries that had developed the practice more, would be the first to eliminate it in a relatively short period of time. However, this was not the case in Spain. The abolition of slavery would be delayed until the second half of the nineteenth century. This delay is not due to a single cause, but to the conjunction of many factors such as political, economic and social interests, national and international, that collided with each other. The different political and socio-economic factors have to be taken into account in order to understand why Spain was one of the last countries to abolish slavery.
