Description[edit | edit source]
The ancient heartland of the Mayas, Guatemala was conquered by the Spanish in the 16th century. It became independent in 1821 but was part of the United States of Central America until 1840. It has endured political turmoil for much of its history. Guatemala lived through one of the most brutal civil wars of the 20th century until a peace agreement was signed in 1996.
