In 1833 the district of Bexar seceded constitutionally from the state to form the separate state of Texas which became an independent republic in 1836, and the name of the state was shortened to Coahuila. Briefly, in 1856 Nuevo León annexed Coahuila in a referendum and declared its independence from Mexico. After the defeat of the separatist forces, Coahuila separated from Nuevo León.

²Nuevo León, Tamaulipas and Coahuila declared their independence form Mexico and formed a de facto independent country for 250 days, after which the separatist forces were defeated and they rejoined the federation.


³In 1824 this state joined the Union as the state of Sonora and Sinaloa, though its own constitution chose the name "Estado de Occidente". In 1830 the state was divided in two to form the separate states of Sonora and Sinaloa, which, after ratifying their own constitutions joined the federation in 1831.


4The Intendencia of Yucatán joined the Mexican Empire and then the federation in 1824. It became an independent republic in two occasions (1841-1843 and 1846-1848). This state comprised the territories of Campeche, Quintana Roo and Yucatán.
