Fun fact. The city of New Amstetdam was defended by a big wall. But the British attacked from the sea. When they conquered the city and renamed it to New York, they also tore down the wall and reused the stones by building a street. That street got the name "Wall Street".

Good video, but, like always, Portuguese and Brazilian history is put in the corner when explaining the history of Latin America and of the Americas. The map concerning Brazil is very wrong. There was no actual Portuguese colonization in the Americas until 1530, with the expedition of Martim Afonso de Souza, who also explored Parana and Paraguay rivers. From 1530 to 1555, Portugal only settled villages in a little part of the coast, which comprised the region between Pernambuco and Bahia (Salvador) and somewhere in São Vicente (shore of São Paulo). In 1555, because of French occupation in Rio de Janeiro (French Antarctica), Portugal sent an army to the region, expelled the French and kinda conected for the first time the colonial regions between Pernambuco and São Vicente (the map in the video gets it totally wrong: there was no previous Portuguese control of Rio, nor did the Portuguese had any inland control by then). During the Iberian Union, Portuguese America was heavily attacked by all Spanish enemies (that is, all European colonial powers: the English, the French and the Dutch). Salvador was sacked by all many times. In 1612-1615, France built Equatorial France in Maranhão, until then unoccupied by Portugal. The Portuguese sent a fleet to successfuly capture the city, and built in Belém Fortress in 1616, in what today is Pará. They used Belém to expel the French, Dutch and English from the mouth of the Amazon river, that had became home of many foreign fortresses and villages. The French were the boldest ones, expanding from Caiena, in French Guiana, to Amapá and Marajó Island. From Belém, Pedro Teixeira expeled the French from Amapá, creating the North Cape Capitany in 1638, and destroying all Dutch, English and French fortresses in the Amazon Basin (that's how French Guyana, Dutch Guyana (aka Suriname) and British Guyana came to be, they were expelled from the Amazon basin). The Dutch saw that Portugal strength was falling under the rule of the Spanish king, so they invaded Pernambuco and Salvador in 1624, also building Recife. While Portugal had to deal with invasions in the North, the poor colonists in São Paulo had started, since the last years of 1500's, to explore the outback of the country, looking for Indigenous peoples to enslave or any kind of resources with which they could make some money (herbs, rare woods, minerals). They sacked Jesuitic missions and got some control of their pioneer routes, kinda indirectly expanding Portugal's territory in the region. It was only after Portuguese Restoration in 1640, the expultion of the Dutch from Portuguese America by the Luso-Brazilians in the Guararapes Battles, in 1648, and the Peace Treaty between Portugal and Spain in the 1660's that Portugal really started to focusing on the New World: Portugal had lost all their Eastern colonies in India and Indonesia to the Dutch during their war or to Britain (Portugal bought England's alliance against the Dutch and the Spanish selling them India). In 1680, Portugal started a power fight against Spain regarding the control of the River Plate: Portugal built Colonia de Sacramento in the East Bank of the river, just in front of Buenos Aires. The plan was to get natural borders with Spanish America (from the Amazon Basin in the North to the Platine Basin in the South). Sacramento also could be a smuggling center in the region, getting the silver from the Spanish settlers in exchange of English products that were smuggled to Brazil beforehand in Rio or São Vicente. The fight for Sacramento would last more than 150 years, with many comes-and-goes. At the time of Sacramento's foundation (1680), however, Portugal became the ruler of the South Atlantic See, commanding both sides of the Atlantic with virtual monopoly of sugar-cane and slave trade. The occupation of the outback of Portuguese America was only consolidated, however, in the 18th century: the pioneers from São Paulo found out large amount of gold and diamonds inland (Minas Gerais, Goiás, Mato Grosso and Rondônia) Cattle growers also expanded their pasture areas following river's heads, going deep in the territory. And just after all these things the Treaty of Madrid of 1750 was settled, Portugal exchanging Sacramento in the East Bank of River Plane (Uruguay) and their share of Moluccas and Philippines in the East for the control of the Amazon Basin, the center part of South America and SSete Povos das Missões, in today's Rio Grande do Sul. Since the Spanish Jesuits didn't leave Sete Povos, and the new king of Portugal didn't want to give up Sacramento, the Treaty was nullified in 1761 by Treaty of El Pardo. Struggle ofr Sacramento kept going on for years, and as Portugal and the United Kingdom were allies, each British victory against France in North America also meant a victory of Portugal against Spain in Sacramento: Portugal kept Sacramento after the Seven Years War, but lost it after the Independence War of the United States. Fleeing from Napoleon, the Portuguese Crown went to Brazil in 1808 and occupied French Guyana as a payback and reoccupied for some years the East Bank of the River Plate. Portugal had to give France the French Guyana back after the Vienna Congress of 1814-1815. In 1816, Portugal occupied for the last time the East Bank and annexed it later on. Brazil got independent in 1822 with the East Bank annexed as Cisplatine Province. The East Bank issue would only be solved after the Cisplatine War, or War of Uruguayan Independence, between 1825-1828, when Brazil and Argentina reached a stalemate. The UK intervened to guarantee East Bank's independence as Uruguay, a buffer state in between the two largest political entities in South America.

When Cortes was expulsed and drived away from Tenochtitlan, he and his 500 men were chased by the aztecs. Heading northeast, they allied with 1000 tlaxcalan warriors, but then they were catches up by the huge aztec army. Althoug it is not clear, it is estimated this army was around 10000 men. By using tercio defensive tactics, eficent and unknown by their enemies, the spanish and their tlaxcala allies resistes as they could, but they were too much outnunmered. Then, Cortes took the horses and with 50 men charged to the aztec general, the son (or nephew) of Moctezuma, who unwisely already was celebrating victory. This charge was so succesfull, that passed through aztec lines with easy (aztecs werent used to resist chavalry charges and their spears werent made to fight horses, obviously) and got to the general guards. Killing their leader and watching the tremendous charge, aztec army started reatriting caoticly. And that is how the first battle of the conquest of Mexica occured and was won by spaniards.

13:27 Some inaccuracies in your maps - FYI: Coastal Nicaragua never officially became an English territory, and Belize aka British Honduras, was not formally recognized as a British territorial possession until July 8th, 1893, when Mexico along with the UK established territorial limits. It is well known that during the times of Imperial Spain, despite constant English piracy presence in that area of what today is Belize, the Spanish Crown, through its Viceroy in the New Spain (Mexico), built the Fort of San Felipe de Bacalar, which deterred English pirates settlements. The Fort is a phenomenal architectural military prowess built in 1725, and still can be visited.

@Rodríguez So what's the difference? With regards your example of Basque fishermen. a) it's perfectly reasonable if you wish to describe the st lawrence river as de facto spanish, as it is reasonable not to. There is no one right answer. I have responded to you claiming that the video was wrong. It's not, it's one reasonable presentation out of many b) what you describe as de facto or not doesn't come into it. The video hasn't been set up for your world view c) de facto "ownership" of a piece of land usually requires i) actually being on the land, not in the water ii) using the land for a commercial purpose iii) having a set of rules that governs the use of that land. The st lawrence river example doesn't have any of those examples, the honduras example does. In honduras settlers used English law, not Spanish law. d) Spain didn't really even exist in 1534. It was essentially still a personal union of crowns. Spain is usually considered to have started to exist at the start of the union for the sake of convenience (there being no other suitable start point). 15th C Basque fishermen would not have considered themselves to be Spanish, or under Spanish law e) the St Lawrence river was considered to be Spanish by Spain after the Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494.

@Chris Watson1786 is definitely not mid 18th C. Even "BRITANNICA" - An English biased source, clearly states: "British buccaneers (pirates) and logwood cutters (more pirates) settled on the inhospitable coast in the mid-17th century. Spain regarded the British as interlopers (pirates) in their territory. By treaties signed in 1763 and 1783, Spain granted British subjects (pirates) the privilege (a bone) of exploiting logwood and, after 1786, the more valuable mahogany (another bone), though only within specified and poorly surveyed territories. Indeed, SPAIN RETAINED SOVEREIGNTY over the area, which Britain called a settlement (piracy in action), as distinct from a formal colony". Then it goes on: "Belize became the British colony of British Honduras in 1862—which was ruled by a governor who was subordinate to the governor of Jamaica—and a crown colony in 1871, when the Legislative Assembly was abolished'. Long story short, by the time your "Royal Piracy of Britain" finally put her act together and formally established a shitty colonial government on the coast of what today is Belize, all Hispanic America had become independent from Imperial Spain (circa 1810), whatever happened next in the 1800s, is as phony as your previous comment on "de facto" British settlement in the mid 18th C.

The coast that is now Belize became de facto British by the mid 18th C. Britain formally appointed governorship in 1786. It was formally declared a colony in 1862.

3:50 you are actually wrong, all the documentation that we have today shows that Portugal knew about the brazilian territory and did not went there by a mistake, you can read the letter of Caminha wrote to the Portuguese king when they arrive in porto seguro he wrote about the land that they knew were in their side of the Tordesilhas deal. For many year in Brazil was told in the way that you said, but after researchers finds the letter of Caminha and many other documents it was Cleary that wasn't a mistake. Many people wrote that was a mistake because they want to show the discovery of Brazil as the day wich the Portuguese were safe after a bad expedition to justify the fact that the Portuguese took so long to colonize Brazil. It's a very common mistake, even in Brazil many people still believes in the old theory

16:03 multiple expeditions were sent from the Viceroyalty of New Spain to explore, halt and defend Spanish territorial claims in the pacific northwest. Some of the most relevant expeditions are the ones led by Malaspina, Bodega y Quadra, and Juan Pérez, that explored the Nootka territory in the Canadian province of British Columbia some years before Capt. James Hook. These expeditions halted the Russian advancement in the region, and permitted Imperial Spain to reaffirm its sovereignty in the Nootka territory. For this same reason, Spanish names such as Váldez, Juan de Fuca, Haro, Alberni, Córdova, López, Galiano, Quadra, etc. are visible on the maps and navigation charts of Alaska and B.C.

After the Vikings it was the Portuguese who were first on the North American Eastern coast, 3 colonies were started in the North by the Portuguese (Newfoundland , Nova Scotia , Labrador ) and one more further south which we know today as the lost colony of Roanoke which was a venture done by Portuguese and the English , governor of this settlement was John White but better known to the Portuguese as Joao Branco which translates John White. My guess after so many years of investigating this colony and what happened to it comes down to this > they were attacked and killed not by the local Indians like some would like us to believe but by either the Spanish , French , Italians or a mix of the three you might even include the Dutch , all are suspects as far as I can tell. By the way Columbus was and still is a son of Portugal , just another lie told in our schools that he was Italian or even Spanish.... We must give Credit and Respect to Portugal and its sons of Discovery & exploration which advanced the world so many years faster than it would have taken otherwise , where would the world & humanity be now if not for their bravery and inventions and maps ? well about 100+ years at least behind where we are now.

Like always, Portuguese and Brazilian history is put in the corner when explaining the history of Latin America and of the Americas. The map concerning Brazil is SO wrong. There was no actual Portuguese colonization in the Americas until 1530, with the expedition of Martim Afonso de Souza, who also explored Parana and Paraguay rivers. From 1530 to 1555, Portugal only settled villages in a little part of the coast, which comprised the region between Pernambuco and Bahia (Salvador) and somewhere in São Vicente (shore of São Paulo). In 1555, because of French occupation in Rio de Janeiro (French Antarctica), Portugal sent an army to the region, expelled the French and kinda conected for the first time the colonial regions between Pernambuco and São Vicente (the map in the video gets it totally wrong: there was no previous Portuguese control of Rio, nor did the Portuguese had any inland control by then). During the Iberian Union, Portuguese America was heavily attacked by all Spanish enemies (that is, all European colonial powers: the English, the French and the Dutch). Salvador was sacked by all many times. In 1612-1615, France built Equatorial France in Maranhão, until then unoccupied by Portugal. The Portuguese sent a fleet to successfuly capture the city, and built in Belém Fortress in 1616, in what today is Pará. They used Belém to expel the French, Dutch and English from the mouth of the Amazon river, that had became home of many foreign fortresses and villages. The French were the boldest ones, expanding from Caiena, in French Guiana, to Amapá and Marajó Island. From Belém, Pedro Teixeira expeled the French from Amapá, creating the North Cape Capitany in 1638, and destroying all Dutch, English and French fortresses in the Amazon Basin (that's how French Guyana, Dutch Guyana (aka Suriname) and British Guyana came to be, they were expelled from the Amazon basin). The Dutch saw that Portugal strength was falling under the rule of the Spanish king, so they invaded Pernambuco and Salvador in 1624, also building Recife. While Portugal had to deal with invasions in the North, the poor colonists in São Paulo had started, since the last years of 1500's, to explore the outback of the country, looking for Indigenous peoples to enslave or any kind of resources with which they could make some money (herbs, rare woods, minerals). They sacked Jesuitic missions and got some control of their pioneer routes, kinda indirectly expanding Portugal's territory in the region. It was only after Portuguese Restoration in 1640, the expultion of the Dutch from Portuguese America by the Luso-Brazilians in the Guararapes Battles, in 1648, and the Peace Treaty between Portugal and Spain in the 1660's that Portugal really started to focusing on the New World: Portugal had lost all their Eastern colonies in India and Indonesia to the Dutch during their war or to Britain (Portugal bought England's alliance against the Dutch and the Spanish selling them India). In 1680, Portugal started a power fight against Spain regarding the control of the River Plate: Portugal built Colonia de Sacramento in the East Bank of the river, just in front of Buenos Aires. The plan was to get natural borders with Spanish America (from the Amazon Basin in the North to the Platine Basin in the South). Sacramento also could be a smuggling center in the region, getting the silver from the Spanish settlers in exchange of English products that were smuggled to Brazil beforehand in Rio or São Vicente. The fight for Sacramento would last more than 150 years, with many comes-and-goes. At the time of Sacramento's foundation (1680), however, Portugal became the ruler of the South Atlantic See, commanding both sides of the Atlantic with virtual monopoly of sugar-cane and slave trade. The occupation of the outback of Portuguese America was only consolidated, however, in the 18th century: the pioneers from São Paulo found out large amount of gold and diamonds inland (Minas Gerais, Goiás, Mato Grosso and Rondônia) Cattle growers also expanded their pasture areas following river's heads, going deep in the territory. And just after all these things the Treaty of Madrid of 1750 was settled, Portugal exchanging Sacramento in the East Bank of River Plane (Uruguay) and their share of Moluccas and Philippines in the East for the control of the Amazon Basin, the center part of South America and SSete Povos das Missões, in today's Rio Grande do Sul. Since the Spanish Jesuits didn't leave Sete Povos, and the new king of Portugal didn't want to give up Sacramento, the Treaty was nullified in 1761 by Treaty of El Pardo. Struggle ofr Sacramento kept going on for years, and as Portugal and the United Kingdom were allies, each British victory against France in North America also meant a victory of Portugal against Spain in Sacramento: Portugal kept Sacramento after the Seven Years War, but lost it after the Independence War of the United States. Fleeing from Napoleon, the Portuguese Crown went to Brazil in 1808 and occupied French Guyana as a payback and reoccupied for some years the East Bank of the River Plate. Portugal had to give France the French Guyana back after the Vienna Congress of 1814-1815. In 1816, Portugal occupied for the last time the East Bank and annexed it later on. Brazil got independent in 1822 with the East Bank annexed as Cisplatine Province. The East Bank issue would only be solved after the Cisplatine War, or War of Uruguayan Independence, between 1825-1828, when Brazil and Argentina reached a stalemate. The UK intervened to guarantee East Bank's independence as Uruguay, a buffer state in between the two largest political entities in South America.

@Faerandur Ok, but there was a Portuguese settlement in nowdays Canada. There is even a monument dedicated to the First European settlers in Nova Scotia on the Halifax waterfront. Some historians contend that after the Vikings, the first attempt at establishing a permanent colony in Canada was led by navigator João Alvares Fagundes (my ancestor curiosly) circa 1520. In 1570, Captain Francisco de Souza, governor of the island of Madeira, reported that under license by King Manuel I, João Alvares Fagundes created a settlement in the new land of the Cod Fish. The location of this settlement has never been found but believed to have been somewhere in Cape Breton. Although no permanent communities are known to have lasted, the Portuguese presence in Atlantic Canada continues to this day while men fish for cod on the Grand Banks.
