Well, I guess we'll have to find another way to India!

Portuguese Empire-icon The Kingdom of Portugalball, also known as the Portuguese Empireball (but never officially), was Portugal-icon Portugalball when monarchy from 1143 to 1910 when changed into Republic.


The Kingdom of Portugal was known as County of Portugal-icon County of Portugalball in his childhood and adolescence. The county became part of the Leon-icon Kingdom of Leonball in 1097, and the Counts of Portugal established themselves as rulers of an independent (and adult) kingdom in the 12th century, thus the birth of the Kingdom of Portugalball.

During the 15th and 16th centuries, the Portuguese Empire developed navigation, allowing exploration for the establishment of a vast colonial empire. This made him the first global colonial power in Europe. He most notably started the "Age of Discovery".

From 1580 to 1640, he was in personal union with Spanish-Empire-icon Habsburg Spainball. After the Portuguese Restoration War of 1640–1668, the kingdom passed to the House of Braganza. From this time, the influence of Portugal declined, but it remained a major power due to its most valuable colony and son, Portuguese Brazil-icon Brazilball. After the independence of Brazil, Portugal sought to establish itself in Africa, but was ultimately forced to yield to the UK-icon UKball's interests, leading to the collapse of the monarchy in the 5 October 1910 revolution and he became the Portugal-icon First Portuguese Republicball.
