 The original explorers of the “New World” were Spanish conquistadors who were searching for shorter trade routes and unlimited treasurers. From Christopher Columbus who discover the New World to Hernán Cortés who conquered the Aztecs to Ferdinand Magellan who circumnavigation of the earth the story of the Spanish Empire is an exciting one.
American history cannot be disconnected from the Spanish Empire. In 1790 two-thirds of the United States was a part of the Spanish Empire. Had Napoleon not turn on his Spanish allies the world map could present at different picture.
For all those interested in history, this lecture cannot be missed.
