From 1493 the island that Christopher Columbus called Hispaniola was formally a colonial possession of Spain until the end of the 17th century. As is generally known, from the policy of devastation and relocation of towns ordered by Governor Antonio Osorio in 1605 and 1606, the western flank of the island was opened to the incursion and settlement of buccaneers and French colonizers. Throughout that century these were occupying a strip of that territory and differentiating it from the central and eastern rest of the island under Spanish control.
