Population history[edit]

The population of Bogotá is stated to be over 100,000 in 1791. Oposed to this, in most sources the amount of inhabitants in 1800 is stated as approx. 21,000. Could anybody, please, check this? Also, I'd appreciate historic figures of the population of New Granada (now, Columbia). Cheers.

P.S.: Cartagena,_Colombia states approx 20,000 inhabitants for 1790 - so maybe these figures refer rather to regions than to urban population?

Why the name change?[edit]

@Vvven: In Spanish the former country is called "Nuevo Reino de Granada"; New Kingdom of Granada. Yet, the name of the article has been changed to "Kingdom of the New Granada" which would translate as "Reino de la Nueva Granada". Googling for this term with parentheses in Spanish gives 62,700 results (but include also the earlier title) and the same search on "Nuevo Reino de Granada" provides 180,000 results.

Why is this name change not discussed beforehand?
What is the convincing argument for this name change?
