Explanation:

[STC002212] It is not a stretch to suppose that Spain previously had the position of governor over Mexico at one time. In the 16th century, the Spanish were successful in their conquest of lands in the New World. These lands originally included territory that extended from north of the Isthmus of Panama all the way up through what is now California and the central United States, and then down the coast of the Gulf of Mexico to Florida. While surviving the fight for Mexican independence throughout the late 17th and early 18th centuries, Spain finally gave way to a coalition between Mexico and Central America, led by Agustín de Iturbide in 1821. Adios, amigos.
