We define semistable generalized parabolic Hitchin pairs (GPH) on a disjoint union X of integral smooth curves and construct their moduli spaces. We define a Hitchin map on the moduli space of GPH and show that it is a proper map. We construct moduli spaces of semistable Hitchin pairs on a reducible projective curve Y. When X is the normalization of Y, we give a birational morphism f from the moduli space H of good GPH on X to the moduli spaceM of Hitchin pairs on Y and show that the Hitchin map on H induces a proper Hitchin map on f(H). We determine the fibers of the Hitchin maps. We study the relationship between representations of the (topological) fundamental group of Y and Higgs bundles on Y. We show that if all the irreducible components of Y are smooth, then the Hitchin map is defined on the entire moduli spaceM.
