“The King of Spain hat now got a command so wide,
that out of his Dominions the Sunne can neither rise nor set.”
Feltam (1652, p. 85) cited in Parker (1977, p. 16)
The glory years, 1492 – 1648, when Spain and Portugal ruled the world.
My Conquistadores section is about the growth of the Spanish Empire.
My other section is about the Portuguese Explorers in what they referred to as the Marvelous Century (O Século Maravilhoso)
