PostSubject: The Spanish Empire   Mon Nov 15, 2010 8:23 pm

Spain

Modern humans entered the Iberian Peninsula about 32,000 years ago. Different populations and cultures followed over the millennia, including the Iberians, the Tartessians, Celts and Celtiberians, Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Suebi and Visigoths. In 711, the Moors, a Berber and Arab army, invaded and conquered nearly the entire peninsula. During the next 750 years, independent Muslim states were established, and the entire area of Muslim control became known as Al-Andalus. Meanwhile the Christian kingdoms in the north began the long and slow recovery of the peninsula, a process called the Reconquista, which was concluded in 1492 with the fall of Granada.
The Kingdom of Spain was created in 1492 with the unification of the Kingdom of Castile and the Kingdom of Aragon.[1] In this year also was the first voyage of Christopher Columbus to the New World, beginning the development of the Spanish Empire. The Inquisition was established and Jews and Muslims who refused to convert were expelled from the country.
For the next three centuries Spain was the most important colonial power in the world. It was the most powerful state in Europe and the foremost global power during the 16th century and the greater part of the 17th century. Spanish literature and fine arts, scholarship and philosophy flourished during this time. Spain established a vast empire in the Americas, stretching from California to Patagonia, and colonies in the western Pacific. Financed in part by the riches pouring in from its colonies, Spain became embroiled in the religiously charged wars and intrigues of Europe, including, for example, obtaining and losing possessions in today's Netherlands, Italy, France, and Germany, and engaging in wars with France, England, Sweden, and the Ottomans in the Mediterranean Sea and northern Africa. Spain's European wars, however, led to economic damage, and the latter part of the 17th century saw a gradual decline of power under an increasingly neglectful and inept Habsburg regime. The decline culminated in the War of Spanish Succession, which ended with the relegation of Spain from the position of a leading western power, to that of a secondary one, although it remained (with Russia) the leading colonial power.
The eighteenth century saw a new dynasty, the Bourbons, which directed considerable efforts towards the renewal of state institutions, with some success, finishing in a successful involvement in the American War of Independence. However, as the century ended, a reaction set in with the accession of a new monarch. The end of the eighteenth and the start of the nineteenth centuries saw turmoil unleashed throughout Europe by the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, which finally led to a French occupation of much of the continent, including Spain. This triggered a successful but devastating war of independence that shattered the country and created an opening for what would ultimately be the successful independence of Spain's mainland American colonies. Shattered by the war, Spain was destabilised as different political parties representing "liberal", "reactionary" and "moderate" groups throughout the remainder of the century fought for and won short-lived control without any being sufficiently strong to bring about lasting stability. Nationalist movements emerged in the last significant remnants of the old empire (Cuba and the Philippines) which led to a brief war with the United States and the loss of the remaining old colonies at the end of the century.
Following a period of growing political instability in the early twentieth century, in 1936 Spain was plunged into a bloody civil war. The war ended in a nationalist dictatorship, led by Francisco Franco which controlled the Spanish government until 1975





Spain's Infantry

While Generally defined by their frontier volunteer rifleman. Spain DID indeed have a -special- unit. "The elite of the regiment", is often a phrase used to describe the Spanish Grenadier. Like their Light Infantry brothers, the Grenadier represented a unique type of soldier in the ranks of the infantry.

Originally selected as specialized assault troops for seiges, Grenadiers quickly gained the reputation of being courageous, fearsome soldiers. By the opening of the 18th century, they were usually the elite of any army in Europe. These men where the elite of the regiment. The Grenadiers original role on the battlefield was not only unique but held a distinguished place for them in the army structure. As this role evolved into the late 18th century, the Grenadiers came increasingly to resemble their brothers in the Light Infantry, making the Grenadier less a grenade-throwing and seige specialist. He was more often called on to perform special tactical functions on the battlefield. Spain's Grenadiers were normally "kamikaze" they would charge headfirst into battle, and while losing their own life they would indeed "blow up" the competition.

Spanish Cavalry

Not much information is found about Spain's "special" cavalry, only that it is known that they entered severe training. This cavalry was then given the name of the "King's Cavalry"

Spanish Navy

The Spanish Navy (Spanish: Armada EspaƱola) is the maritime arm of the Spanish Military, one of the oldest active naval forces in the world. The Armada is responsible for notable achievements in world history such as the discovery of America, the first world circumnavigation, and the discovery of a maritime path from the Far East to America across the Pacific Ocean (Urdaneta's route). For three centuries the Spanish Navy played a crucial defensive and logistical role within the Spanish Empire. It formed part of a vast trade network that sailed the Pacific from Asia to America and the Atlantic from America to Europe escorting the galleon convoys. The Spanish Navy was the most powerful maritime force in the world from the 16th century to the mid or late 17th century. It was the third strongest in the 18th century and into the early decades of the 19th century
The San Blas Navy is Spain's "Special fleet"
It is always the center for -attention-
This is where Spain sends it's strongest Naval vessels.



Events
The only thing significant to know:1800-1814 Peninsular War. Spaniards rise against Napoleon's occupying force. Combination of guerilla tactics and support from Wellington's army end in French defeat.
This crippled France's hold on the border, and obviously France.
