FC: You Wouldn't Want To Settle The Treaty Of Tordesillas By:Cameron

1: I.Introduction Have you heard what Spain and Portugal did?The treaty of Tordesillas was very important for Spain and Portugal but, before it happened it went through a couple of reasons to do it. One reason the Spaniards and Portuguese's made this agreement is that Spain thought that Portugal wouldn’t get in the way of their exploration. They also made this agreement to determine who would get the newly discovered lands.The Treaty was made between John II of Portugal and Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain who were the rulers at that time of the 2 countries.Over the years, Portugal started to discover a ship load of new land so Spain thought that Portugal owned more land.Spain decided to create the treaty to even out the fairness to discover new land.How do you feel about this idea.So as you see the treaty went through a number of fazes. | In Have you heard what Spain and Portugal did?The treaty of Tordesillas was very important for Spain and Portugal but, before it happened it went through a couple of reasons to do it.

2: Why Did Spain And Portugal Make This Treaty? Why did Spain and Portugal make this treaty?Spain and Portugal made this treaty to determine which country got which land to explore.This treaty was between John II of Portugaland Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain the two rulers of exploration back then.Spain thought Portugal owned more land and it was unfair for Spain.They also thought that they would get in each others way in exploration and it would get them in some sort of trouble like war!Now you see why Spain and Portugal made this treaty to show how would get which land.

3: Which Side Did Which Country Get? Which side did which country get?The Treaty made it so that everybody had a certain area to explore.The country granted Spain possession of all lands discovered to the west of that line for example Asia and Australia.Portugal was to have possession of all similar lands to the east of the line so America,Canada,and green land.If the Country did not all ready have a christian ruler it was anybodies turf.So every body had a chance to discover new land even if the land on your side has all ready been partly discovered.So as you see every body had chance to discover land in the world so it was supposedly fair.

4: How Long Was The Imaginary Line? How long was the imaginary line?The treaty had a distinct amount of distance from one point to another.The imaginary line is 370 leagues so about 1,185 miles in 21st century talk,so 1,185 out of 7,692 of the earth.the line went west of the Cape Verde Islands, located off the western coast of Africa.The line went from the Cape Verde islands to Antarctica so it took up about half of the world to explore.Alexander VI—who was Spanish—drew the first Papal Line of Demarcation in the Inter Caetera, a declaration granting Spain possession.Now you see what I mean about having a distinct one point to another.

5: Conclusion Now If I haven’t told enough then I not quite sure what more you want maybe more information or even more graphics but if not then I must have done a good job. So lets look at an over view of the section.First we learned why the to countries made this agreement.Next we learned about Which side did which country got which area of the treaty. Third we learned how long the line was.So now you should now about the treaty of tordisellas for example you should know that the imaginary line is 1,185 miles long and that Spain got the west side and Portugal got the east side. So now you know that the treaty was very important to Spain’s history and Portugal’s history.
