Talk:Francisco de Montejo
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
The collapse of time and space in the 2nd to last paragraph is confusing. In addition:
- The spaniard Rodrigo Ruiz was responsible for the killing of Lempira, not Francisco de Montejo. See the Achivo General de Indias Patronato 69, or the transcription of it published in Los últimos Días de Lempira by Mario Felipe Martínez Castillo (2000).
- What is the region refered to in the phrase "the most powerful king of that region, Tutulxin"?
- There is no mention of his rivalry with Pedro de Alvarado over the governorship of Honduras. See Robert Chamerberlain: The Conquest and Colonization of Honduras (1953) for details of the rivalry, and also his Conquest and Colonization of Yucatan.
- No mention of his multiple unsuccessful campaigns to conquer Yucatan, which his son succeded in conquering in the 1540s.
- Olancho is in eastern Honduras, which becomes part of the Audiencia of Los Confines, and then Guatemala more recently in time.
Appleton's is not a good source for this entry.

- All very valid observations, and agreed that Appleton's is generally a poor resource to draw information from. If you've the refs to hand then by all means you'd be most welcome to make any necessary changes, or at least to correct the most egrarious errors and omissions. Unfortunately articles in this general topical area are ill-attended to at present, and it may take quite a while otherwise for improvements to be made.--cjllw | TALK 00:19, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
