King Charles III and Los Angeles.
Is it King Charles III or King Carlos III?
Some people have confused King Charles III with King Carlos III.
I am not sure why, as King Carlos III was King of Spain from 1759 to 1788, while King Charles III became King of the United Kingdom on 8 September 2022.
Where is the Los Angeles connection?
The city of Los Angeles was created in 1781, with the approval of King Charles III. (Spanish: Carlos)
King Charles III (Spanish: Carlos Sebastián de Borbón y Farnesio, 20 January 1716 – 14 December 1788) was King of Spain in the years 1759 to 1788.
The creation of Los Angeles.
King Carlos III (King of Spain 1759 to 1788), from his palace in Madrid, gave approval to the creation of the new city of Los Angeles in 1781.
Los Angeles is in the State of California.
The State of California was under Spanish rule until 1821 when the Viceroyalty of New Spain achieved its independence and the new State of Mexico was proclaimed.
After the Mexican–American War (1846–1848), California was ceded to the United States under the terms of the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
Mexico, under this treaty, agreed to cede 55 percent of its territory including the present-day states of California, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, and most of Arizona and Colorado. Mexico also relinquished all claims for Texas and recognized the Rio Grande as the southern boundary of Texas.
