These reforms, especially the institution of the intendancy, initiated a dramatic social and economic transformation of the island during the last half of the 18th century and early 19th.

the Philippines. ) refers to the Spanish (Spain) territory of Florida, which formed part of the Captaincy General of Cuba, the Viceroyalty of New Spain, and the Spanish Empire. Originally extending over what is now the southeastern United States, but with no defined boundaries, ''la Florida'' was a component of the Spanish colonization of the Americas and the expansion of the Spanish Empire. Wide-ranging expeditions were mounted into the hinterland during the 16th century, but Spain never exercised complete control over ''la Florida'' outside an area of what is now the state of Florida (Florida), southern Georgia (Georgia (U.S. state)), southern Alabama, southeastern Louisiana (Florida_Parishes), and other areas along the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico. In 1609 the area became a captaincy general (Captaincy), when the governor and ''Audiencia'' president was also granted the title of captain general (Captain General) to deal with foreign threats to the area from the Caribbean, granting the area autonomy in administrative and military matters. Around the same time Habsburg Spain created other captaincies general in Puerto Rico (Captaincy General of Puerto Rico) (1580), Cuba (Captaincy General of Cuba) (1607) and Yucatán (Captaincy General of Yucatán) (1617).

Captaincy General of Cuba

The '''Captaincy General of Cuba''' ( ) was an administrative district of the Spanish Empire created in 1607 as part of Habsburg Spain's attempt to better defend the Caribbean against foreign powers, which also involved creating captaincies general in Puerto Rico (Captaincy General of Puerto Rico), Guatemala (Captaincy General of Guatemala) and Yucatán (Captaincy General of Yucatán). The restructuring of the Captaincy General in 1764 was the first example of the Bourbon Reforms in America. The changes included adding the provinces of Florida (Spanish Florida) and Louisiana (Louisiana (New Spain)) and granting more autonomy for these provinces. This later change was carried out by the count of Floridablanca (José Moñino y Redondo, conde de Floridablanca) under Charles III (Charles III of Spain) to strengthen the Spanish position vis-a-vis the British in the Caribbean. A new governor-captain general based in Havana oversaw the administration of the new district. The local governors of the larger Captaincy General had previously been overseen in political and military matters by the president of the Audiencia of Santo Domingo (Real Audiencia of Santo Domingo). This ''audiencia'' retained oversight of judicial affairs until the establishment of new ''audiencias'' in Puerto Príncipe (Camagüey) (1800) and Havana (1838). In 1825, as a result of the loss of the mainland possessions, the Spanish government granted the governors-captain generals of Cuba extraordinary powers in matters of administration, justice and the treasury and in the second half of the 19th century gave them the title of Governor General.
