The conditional tense in most Romance languages conveys time, modality and evidentiality. However, the authors have based their statements upon scarce data, literary texts as well as their introspection. In this article, I aim to account for the dialect and geographic distribution of the conditional tense in the early 20th century, in order to determine the semantic readings, it could express. Furthermore, I will pinpoint whether, as happens nowadays, it was already an evidentiality strategy one hundred years ago.
