Colonización y perdón de España

Indeed the British have maintained the myth that they were the humane conquerors compared to the Spanish. At least since the Treaty of Methuen (1703) they have given aid and succor to their allies the Portuguese for which they essentially obtained control over that countries wealth. The Spanish lost not only the imperial contest with Britain, they lost the propaganda war too.
