So, you'd be willing to deny that Portugal gained independence from Spain and then extended its borders eastward across the Iberian peninsula then? Or was it the power of Spain that, despite Portugal's independence, since oooh, 1134 say, prevented that spread except in a maritime way?

|That first question went wrong. I'm sure you know what I meant.|

dude... i don't know who you are but you're utterly stupid. Portugal didn't get independence from Spain! Portugal is in fact an older country than Spain. the romans named the iberian peninsula 'hispania'. it wasn't a country but a region with loads of different peoples and languages – disorganised and considered barbaric. When the arabs conquered the iberian peninsula it was still called hispania. The Portuguese were the first in the iberian peninsula to conquer land from the moors and gather what is now Portugal. when the rest of 'hispania' finally expelled the moors and named itself Spain (1491), Portugal was Portugal for at least 400 years and was already conquering lands in Africa! So mind your ignorance and arrogance! Read instead of gossiping! You're a fraud!
