Talk:Fernando Poo

Jump to: navigation, search

Wasn't Fernando Pό an Aragonese colony back in the day? Some other islands were (are?) Aragonese colonies, so it could be that I was confusing them for this island. I know Rio, Tunisia (by extension of Sicily), Melilla, and Oran were or are Aragonese colonies, were/are any others? Misterxeight 00:13, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

You're right about the Aragonese connexion! The article Iberian Peninsula says: "Castile and Aragon also hold the Canary Islands and Fernando Po in condominium." Riu de L'Argent is their other (ex-)colony. Good work! Elemtilas 02:33, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

So I guess I am useful afterall :)

Anyway I'm a little confused about the Argentites. They're completely unnafiliated with the Aragonese Kingdom, but they recognize the Bourbon King as their HoG while their president, chancellor, whatever is only rhe HoS? Maybe I'm having a hard time wrapping this 'round my head because the US President is both the HoG and HoS, but if I am even right about that, does the King have any say at all in RdL'A, or simply a mere figurehead?

Ferko seems to have pegged FP as Castilian in this post, as caretaker of West Africa. The condominium idea seems to come from Carlos here on this Wiki, as caretaker of the Spains. Definitely a conflict, although not one that necessarily needs to be solved right now.
The Bourbon king of Aragon is head of state of Riu in exactly the same way that Elizabeth II is Queen of Canada, Australia, the Bahamas, etc. (and that Queen Diana is Queen of all those NAL provinces). Benkarnell 02:50, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
