Tologalpa

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

One of two "provinces", the other being Taguzgalpa, mentioned in Spanish records of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, as lying on the Caribbean side of Central America. Tologalpa corresponded more or less to the northern part of modern day Nicaragua. Very little is known about the province, however, as the Spanish had little contact with it, save for some unsuccessful attempts to evangelize it in the seventeenth century. Much of its territory eventually passed under the control of Miskito raiders in the eighteenth centuries.
