The need for independence was growing for a long time in Latin America, but until then the Spanish forces were able to block those movements for independence.
But when Napoleon invaded Spain, the rebels saw the chance they needed. When Napoleon invaded Spain he put his brother on the Spanish throne. This was the perfect timing for secession. Spain was not able to hold its rich colonies because most of the independence movement took place at the same time.
When Napoleon occupied Spain, this severed the link between Spain and its colonies. Creoles in the colonies saw this as an opportunity to restore their position in colonial society, which had been diminished buy Spanish policies. Some even sought to free themselves entirely from Spanish rule.

Explanation:Napoleon caused revolutions in Latin America indirectly. His overthrow of the Spanish monarchy in Spain led to the Spanish-controlled colonies being ruled by Napoleon's brother Joseph as part of the French Empire. The colonists, especially the criollos, were already questioning whether the Spanish had the right to govern them or whether they should assert independence. However, most colonists could agree that there was no way that France had any right to govern them. Additionally, Spain's defeat by France meant that Spain could not expend as many soldiers and strength to repress any revolutions there. This made it an ideal time for a revolt.
However, Napoleon did not support or directly influence any of the three major Latin American revolutionaries (Bolivar, San Martin, and Padre Hidalgo).
In 1807, Napoleonic forces invaded Spain under the pretext of arriving in Portugal, an ally of Great Britain, the great enemy of Napoleon's expansionist plans. Once the French forces arrived in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, numerous French soldiers continued to cross the Spanish territory. Soon the Spaniards realized that Napoleon was carrying out a covert invasion of their territory, and in 1808 the Spanish crown abdicated in the name of Napoleon, who appointed his brother Jose Bonaparte king of Spain.
As a result, the Spanish forces began to carry out a war of independence against Napoleon's France, which lasted until 1814 and culminated in the Spanish victory and the restoration of the monarchy of Ferdinand VII.
While this conflict was developing, there was a situation of emptiness of power in the Spanish colonies in the American continent, so that in this situation the Latin American nationalists began to carry out revolts that ended up triggering in turn wars of independence of these Latin American nations. In that context, Spain, which was fighting on two fronts, could not avoid the independence of its colonies.

Mexico gained independence in 1821. Louisiana's purchase was also resulted due to the Napoleonic wars when the British Navy made it impossible for Napoleon to control the new territories in the Americas, he sold Louisiana to the US.
The wars caused Portuguese leaders to leave Europe and rule the colony of Brazil from the colony itself. Due to Napoleonic wars, the Portuguese court fled from Brazil and it became a kingdom. It allowed them to trade with any country. When Brazil finally became independent of French occupation in 1815 it had become accustomed to the local leadership this was a major issue which leads to the Brazilian War of Independence
