The Republic of the Rio Grande (Spanish: República del Río Grande) was an independent nation that insurgents against the Central Mexican Republic sought to establish in northern Mexico from January 17 to November 6, 1840, their capital was the city of Laredo, in the territory disputed between Mexico and Texas.

The Rio Grande Republic was one of three rebel states that tried to separate from Mexico, the other being Texas and the Republic of Yucatan.

(Note: Rio Grande should not be confused with the similarly named (and contemporaneous) Brasilian rebel nation of Rio Grande do Sul).
