Doh, I feel silly for not looking it up myself now. Also, thanks for correcting May Revolution; my Spanish sense has really deteriorated. - mako 03:08, 19 July 2005 (UTC)
Regarding the late edits that proposed the name Viceroyalty of the River of Silver, the name of the river is River Plate, and its not something we came out with in the Wikipedia. See for instance the Britannica Encyclopedia. Mariano(t/c) 07:14, 13 October 2005 (UTC)
Also, the name of the viceroyalty was Virreinato del Río de la Plata, not of the "River Plate"...note also that without including wikipedia mirrors, "Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata" gets almost twice as many google hits as "Viceroyalty of the River Plate", and many of the "River Plate" ones are in parentheses after the "Río de la Plata" name. In any case, for consistency's sake, if the outcome of the discussion at Talk:Río de la Plata ends up favoring "River Plate", I'll support moving this article back to "Viceroyalty of the River Plate", even if I shudder at the sound of it.
