Description:

Interesting world map on Mercator’s projection showing the colonial possessions and discoveries of Spain and Portugal in the C16th to C18th. Their colonies are highlighted in soft green for Spain and in pink and red for Portugal. The 1494 Tordesilhas Treaty divided the world between Portugal and Castille (modern-day Spain) which was set at the Treaty of Zaragoza in 1529. Although the Philippines were not named in the treaty, Spain implicitly relinquished any claim to them because they were well west of the line. Nevertheless, by 1542, King Charles V decided to colonize the Philippines, judging that Portugal would not protest too vigorously because the archipelago had no spice, but he failed in his attempt. King Philip II succeeded in 1565, establishing the initial Spanish trading post at Manila.
