This is a list of politicians, soldiers, franciscans, explorer and Spanish settlers who ruled the Hispanic colonies of the current United States or who lived and fought for them. This list includes settlers, franciscans, political and military Spanish who were born or established in the Southwest (California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Utah and Nevada), Florida, Louisiana (1763–1800) and other Spanish colonies of United States, between the early 16th century and 1850. Because the Hispanic colonies in United States was ruled by Spain, many politicians and military leaders of these colonies also ruled or participated in historical events in Spain or in Latin America, so they did not live steadily in the colonies Hispanic of the current United States in which they were established. The same occurs with some Franciscans, who established missions evangelism in the American colonies in which they lived, but also elsewhere, especially in Mexico. The explorer who lived or died in an expedition in this country are also included. However, they also helped shape the history of the present United States, understood as a basic set of former British colonies, French, Spanish and Russian that have the British as a unifying element. This list shows the politicians, soldiers, franciscans and settlers who lived in the Hispanic colonies of the United States and therefore obeyed the orders of the Spanish crown.
