The beginning of the Third Republic of Venezuela is attributed to the period after the Guayana campaign [es], during which the Republicans restored democratic institutions in Angostura. The Republic ended, after the Congress of Angostura of 1819 decreed the union of Venezuela with New Granada, to form the Republic of Gran Colombia.

Venezuela would become once again an independent Republic after its separation from Gran Colombia in 1830, with José Antonio Páez as President.
