To account for the outbreak of the Spanish civil war in July 1936 we must look carefully at all the possible reasons behind the outbreak of war We must examine carefully the long-term problems and divisions within Spain and Spanish society and then we must have a look at the intermediate problems of the Second Republic 1931-36 Finally we must look a the immediate problems just before the war started and look carefully at the military revolt against the republic July 1936 before we are able to draw a conclusion on the causes of the war Throughout all of Spains history there have been numerous social groups that have caused unrest and turmoil Due to a lack of solutions being found to solve these evident problems in July 1936 Spain erupted into a fierce civil war In the years 1930 and 1931 3 different wars had been started in Spain with the majority of this fighting being created by the various social groups in Spain These groups can be split into 5 main separate groups the Anarchists who were a group of anti-clerical peasants who led numerous strikes against businesses and plotted assassinations against government officials The second group is the Spanish army who refused to support any change in Spanish government The third group was known as the separatists the Basques and Catalonians who wanted independence from Spain The fourth group is the church officials who held a more powerful position on the government that they were more influential than the King was The final group is the big landowners who refused to accept any change in government as they feared losing their land to land reform For many years these groups fought among themselves and lots of tension grew between the divisions To add to these problems the current king of Spain King Alfonso XIII was a very weak King whose power in Spain was being undermined by the Catholic Church
