= Smallpox in America

In 1507 smallpox was introduced into the Caribbean island of Hispaniola and to the mainland in 1520, when Spanish settlers from Hispaniola arriving in Mexico brought smallpox with them. Smallpox devastated the native Amerindian population and was an important factor in the conquest of the Aztecs and the Incas by the Spaniards.[22] Settlement of the east coast of North America in 1633 in Plymouth, Massachusetts was also accompanied by devastating outbreaks of smallpox among Native American populations,[53] and subsequently among the native-born colonists.[54] Some estimates indicate case fatality rates of 80–90% in Native American populations during smallpox epidemics.[55] Source :[link]

= Great Plague of Spain

Three great plagues ravaged Spain in the 17th century. They were:
-The Plague of 1596-1602 (Arrived in Santander by ship from northern Europe, most likely the Netherlands, then spread south through the centre of Castile, reaching Madrid by 1599 and arriving in the southern city of Seville by 1600.) which claimed 600,000 to 700,000 lives
-The Plague of 1646-1652 ("The Great Plague of Seville"; believed to have arrived by ship from Algeria, it was spread north by coastal shipping, afflicting towns and their hinterlands along the Mediterranean coast as far north as Barcelona.)
-The Plague of 1676-1685
Factoring in normal births, deaths, plus emigration, historians reckon the total cost in human lives due to these plagues throughout Spain, throughout the entire 17th century, to be a minimum of nearly 1.25 million. As a result, the population numbers of Spain scarcely budged between the years 1596 and 1696.[1]

As much as I hate to agree with Mexico in the issue with Spain. Im an outsider's point of view, one who doesn't known his story, his sufferings, I have to. It's sort of a Karma for me. After all the things he did to his colonies. I just have to. But why is that I feel pity instead.

My US history textbook in high school and middle school told me that 90% of Native Americans died from diseases the colonists brought, ha ha. I think that the same thing happened to the aboriginals in Australia, too.

. . . Which is why the way Himaruya portrayed Britain's "discovery" of USA is extremely offensive to me, ha ha, but he didn't know, so it can't be helped.

Himaruya seriously didnt know? >.>; really??
You know, Himaruya depiction of White!Australia is very offensive to Yolngu community, and greatly reminds me of White Australia Policy. It doesnt help that this policy was only abolished in 1970, so it's pretty recent. One can speculate that Himaruya support this policy, hmmmmm.
The same could be said about New Zealand. Does he now about Maori Land Confiscations? =__=

Is the sweating disease mentioned here the one that happened in Tudor England? It's a different disease from the plague, but I'm wondering if the names are used interchangeably.
I remembered the news about the genome of the plague bacteria being decoded just last year, this is super exciting!
