Captaincy General of Puerto Rico

O'Reilly was later appointed governor of colonial Louisiana in 1769 where he became known as "Bloody O'Reilly." Alejandro O'Reilly 1725-1794, Retrieved November 29, 2008 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.

Mahdia

of the Western Mediterranean, which allowed the First Crusade to be supplied by sea. Fuller, J.F.C., ''A Military History of the Western World, Volume I'', Da Capo Press, 1987, p. 408 ISBN 0-306-80304-6 The Zirid dynasty had its residence here in the 11th century, but was brought to an end by the Norman conquest of the city in 1148. In 1160 the city came under Almohad rule. Tunisia: History. LookLex Encyclopaedia. The role of the capital was taken over by Tunis in the 12th century during the Almohad era, which it remained during the Hafsid Dynasty. Some buildings still exist from the 10th and 11th centuries, such as the Great Mosque (Great mosque of Mahdia) and the Casbah, which have helped make the city an important tourist attraction. Later the city was subject to many raids. In 1390 it was the target of the Mahdian Crusade, when a French army laid siege to the city but failed to take it. The city was captured (Capture of Mahdiye (1550)) by the Spaniards in 1550. A Spanish garrison remained there until 1553. Charles V (Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor) then offered the charge of the town to the Order of Saint John (Knights Hospitaller) who ruled Malta (History of Malta under the Order of Saint John) but they refused it deeming it too expensive. '''Philip of Mahdia''', of Greek (Greeks) origin, was the emir of Palermo, the second ''ammiratus ammiratorum (Admiral)'', and successor of the great George of Antioch. He was a eunuch who rose through the ranks of the royal ''curia'' in Palermo until he was eventually one of King Roger II's most trusted men. On George's death in year 546 of the Hegira (Hijri year) (AD 1151 or 1152), Roger appointed him to the highest post in the kingdom. In 1060 Pisa engaged in its first battle with Genoa, and the Pisan victory helped to consolidate its position in the Mediterranean. Pope Gregory VII recognized in 1077 the new "laws and customs of the sea" instituted by the Pisans, and Emperor Henry IV granted them the right to name their own consuls, advised by a Council of Elders. This was simply a confirmation of the present situation, because in those years the marquis had already been excluded from power. In 1092 Pope Urban II awarded Pisa supremacy over Corsica and Sardinia, and at the same time raised the town to the rank of archbishopric. Pisa sacked the Tunisian city of Mahdia in 1088. Four years later Pisan and Genoese ships helped Alfonso VI of Castile to force El Cid out of Valencia.
