Untitled[edit]

In Spanish language countries, the first surname is the main surname, so Hernando de Escalante Fontaneda should not be quoted as "Fontaneda" but as "Escalante".--213.96.18.161 22:50, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Actually, it is more proper to cite by using both names. Ileanadu (talk) 03:20, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

King Carlos reference[edit]

A sentence in the main article reads:

Around 1566 Fontaneda was rescued from his captivity by Pedro Menéndez de Avilés, Florida's first Spanish governor and founder of St. Augustine, who bargained for his freedom from King Carlos.

The link to King Carlos has been deleted as G1. Should this be changed here also? Ileanadu (talk) 03:24, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Actually, this article says that it was a King Juan Carlos of the Calusa who held him captive:

Which raises another issue; there are no citations or references in this article other than to the translation of Hernando de Escalante Fontaneda's own memoir. I read somewhere that his memoirs did not relate who rescued him, and there's some dispute on this issue. Ileanadu (talk) 03:33, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
