Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Domingo Mart nez de Irala (c. 1509 Bergara, Gipuzkoa - c. 1556 Asuncion, Paraguay) was a Spanish Basque conquistador. He headed for the Americas in 1535 enrolled in the expedition of Pedro de Mendoza and participated in the founding of Buenos Aires. He explored the Paran and Paraguay Rivers along with Juan de Ayolas and was commanding the rear-guard when Ayolas's advance party were wiped out by the Payagua Indians. Unique in Spanish America, the colony had been granted by Charles V the right to elect its own commander under such circumstances and in August 1538, de Irala was elected by the conquistadors as Captain General of the R o de la Plata.show more
