Historical Context: Although the Spanish Empire declined somewhat in political importance during the seventeenth century, it remained a powerful entity whose territories continued to provide important trading destinations. Many people throughout Europe, especially merchants and politicians, needed basic information about the location and extent of the empire's various territories. Dutch commercial cartographers provided this information in a variety of forms. Abraham Allard, for example, listed the Spanish and Portuguese possessions in a large block of text; he also named the ancient peoples (e.g., the Turditani of Badajoz) of the seventeen regions from which Spain and Portugal were formed.
