For Gonçalo

Hey Gonçalo,

I'll have to check that fact about Portugal discovering Brazil prior to October 12th 1492, because that's something I'm not sure about.

About the gold, yes we go a lot of it. What do you think allowed us to war all over Europe to Flandes (which btw was Spanish at some point) and even Germany? The problem is that the gold was not infinite, and from being the "empire where sun never sets" we passed to be just a not very rich country :-).

Best,
Dioni
