The Captaincy General of Santo Domingo was the first Spanish colony in the New World, and later became the Dominican Republic. Originally known as "La Española", the colony was organized as the Royal Audiencia of Santo Domingo in 1511. After years of struggles with the French, during which the western third of the island was ultimately lost, the Spanish remained in control of the eastern two-thirds of the island, except for a period of French rule from 1795-1809. The colony played a significant role in the establishment Spanish colonies in the New World for being a hub for Spanish Conquistadores on their way for the conquest of the Americas. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colony_of_Santo_Do...
