Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Conquistador is the term widely used to refer to the Spanish and Portuguese soldiers, explorers, and adventurers who brought much of the Americas under the control of Spain and Portugal in the 15th to 19th centuries following Europe's discovery of the New World by Christopher Columbus in 1492. The two perhaps most famous conquistadores were Hern n Cort?'s who conquered the Aztec Empire and Francisco Pizarro who led the conquest of the Incan Empire. The conquistadors in the Americas were more volunteer militia than an actual organized military. They had to supply their own materials, weapons and horses. Some were supported by governments, such as Hernan Cortes, who was funded by Spain.show more
