= 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!

I think Mexico is being too harsh
True it was the explorers who brought the disease, but it was an unexpected side effect. Both sides suffered the illness. The difference is the explorers had more immunity to it after generations of fighting against the disease

Mexicans are stereotyped to have very hot tempers, especially people say anything insulting about their nationality or cause harm to their families.

Even if the small pox was unintentional, it still killed many people and helped the Spaniards get a better reign on the Mexicans. I'm not surprised if Mexico is acting this way.

I agree! They colonists didn't mean for the natives to die like that and also got sick with malaria and other diseases on the other end. Plus, New Spain is technically Spain's son not just "little brother." And Mexicans as well as many other Latin Americans still refer to Spain as "La Madre Patria" although he's more the father.

What I've heard though Spain got his own share of internal parasites that didn't exist previously in Europe ^^;

I guess that happens with every country and their former colonies. Once they reach their independence they don't really want to call the other countries "fathers", because it still implies some dominance

Oh really? Hmmm...I wonder where they must've goten them then. I'm sure some diseases were brought back to Europe from the New World although the reverse happened more widely. Or also from Asia...I've recently heard that's originally where the Black Plague started...

Hmmm...maybe. Or probably because in speech almost all countries are seen in the feminine (Mother Russia, etc.).

No idea, maybe eating something he shouldn't?

The Black Plague was absolutely devastating. 3 waves whipped out most of the european population at the time (but considering the lack of sanitation it's not really surprising the lack of methods to prevent it)
The funny thing is most of our resistance to AIDS comes from the survivors of the Black Plague ^^;

In my personal opinion we should have 2 characters, one male that does the exploring, expansions, traveling, wars, etc and a female that stays at home and represents the mother land (not being sexist about it. Historically this is how populations moved around, males first)

Yeah...I mean, I can't even imagine something like that happening today. I mean...a disease that wipes out 3/4 of your continent?! O_O

Oh really? Wow...I never knew that...

Hmmm...that would be a good idea. Because after all, Spain and Portugal themselves suffered too. I mean all that fighting over pointless succession and religious wars. And not everyone on the mainland agreed with the way they handled the expansion into the New World and I read that a few people who tortured the natives were punished when they got back home.

me gusta tu mexico :) es lindo, solo que me medio saca de onda su sombrero XD
desgraciadamente, leyendo el estereotipo tenemos mala fama y aun se nos ve como pueblo ):, nuestros hombres ya no usan sombrero ancho, ni barba de tres dias, ni dientes de oro, no somos asi de perezosos ( hay gente que se levanta desde las 3 para trabajar y se duerme pasando la media noche y en las mujeres sobre todo, se encargan aparte de la familia y la casa), enserio, odio como nos ven fuera, a pesar de que intentamos, con todas nuetras fuerzas salir adelante y que se nos deje de ver como el "basurero" de los estados unidos (estupidos gringos, la gran mayoria habla mal de mexico, pero bien que se vienen a vivir aqui cuando se jubilan...).
lamento ponerte esto, pero no lo pude evitar, u.u forfavor continua tu doujinshi, realmente lo amo <3 :)
English:
poor Spain
:) I like your Mexico is beautiful, only takes me half wave his hat XD
Unfortunately, reading the stereotype we have a bad reputation and still see us as village), our men do not wear wide-brimmed hat, and beard of three days, or gold teeth, we are not as lazy as well (there are people who get up from the 3 to work and sleeps from midnight and especially women, are responsible apart from family and home), really, I hate how we the world sees us, even though we try, with all forces our get ahead and that we no longer see as the "dump" of the United States (stupid gringos, the vast majority speak ill of Mexico, but afther come to live here when they retire ...).
sorry to put this, but I could not help, continue your doujinshi please, really love it <3 :)

and .... sorry if my English is not understood ... i use the google translator to help me... X,D

Thank you for making more pages with Mexico! Anyway, it's cute that Mexico treats Philippines like a sister instead of hating her for trying to heal Spain.

My home nation is a very lucky girl to have such a protective "brother" and a loving husband (Brunei).

It makes it so hard for me to find my OTP! BruxPiri, MexPiri or AmexPiri. Ah The choices!
