This map is completly wrong and POV! It states, wrongly, that the Portuguese possessions in South America were part of the Spanish Empire, that was never the case, not even in the period of the Iberian Union, between 1580 and 1640, when the two countries had the same kings. But it was not a union of the countries and their respective empires - it was a personal union of the crowns in one dynasty - the Habsburgs. I am changing the image.

Royal Audiences[edit]

I am not sure how current audiencia is as an accepted English-language term for a Spanish political /judicial administration ("audience" is the appropriate but possibly misleading alternative,) but real should certainly be translated on every page using it to "Royal," which is what is meant. Also Ogre is correct in his point above. -LlywelynII (talk) 08:11, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Audience of Lima[edit]

Finally, was the audience at Lima a separate entity from the Viceroyalty of Peru? If not, the currently dead link could be redirected to the viceroyalty article. -LlywelynII (talk) 08:13, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
