    En el último cuarto del siglo xviii, y casi uno tras otro, sucedieron en el mundo dos acontecimientos que iban a transformar radicalmente el orden político constitucional imperante: sólo 13 años separaron la Revolución Norteamericana en 1776, de la Revolución Francesa en 1789. Esas dos revoluciones, que trastocaron el constitucionalismo de la época, junto con la Revolución Hispanoamericana (1810-1930), iniciada 21 años después de la última, pueden considerarse sin duda, desde el punto de vista político como los acontecimientos más importantes del mundo moderno. Ambos tuvieron una enorme importancia para Venezuela y Colombia, ya que fue a comienzos del siglo xix, cuando por primera vez en estos países, se recibió su influencia y se percibieron sus consecuencias constitucionales; influencia que llegó precisamente cuando los próceres de la Independencia se encontraban en la tarea de elaborar las bases de un sistema jurídico-estatal para un nuevo Estado independiente, segundo –después de los Estados Unidos de Norteamérica–, en la historia política del mundo moderno.
