  • Destroyed 2 Advanced Civilivations
  • Portuguese explorers negatively affected the native people of Brazil by enslaving them, but many died through starvation and being overworked, so the explorers turned to Africa to enslave their native people as well.
  • Vast Riches
  • The Portuguese explorers were also trying to make the native Brazilians to give up their religion to Christianity as one of their goals was to spread it.
  • The Spanish explorers had taken control of the Aztec and Inca Empires by at first being welcomed by the native people but then taking the empire's rulers as a hostage, as a result causing the natives to pay ransom to get the ruler back, but then the explorers killed the rulers and took control of the empires in the end.
  • The Inca and Aztec Empires crumbled with having their rulers and their riches taken by the Spanish Explorers.
