Colombia Territory

By | December 15, 2021

The name of Colombia was given in 1819 by Simón Bolívar, in honor of the great Genoese, to the republic formed by the union of the territories of Venezuela, Ecuador and New Grenade, which last, the Spanish viceroyalty, included most of the territories of present-day Colombia. Venezuela in 1829 and Ecuador in 1830 separated themselves from the republic of Colombia, forming independent states (see story). The Nuova Granata (which from 1858 to ’61 was officially called the Granadina Confederation) took on the name of Colombia again in ’63 (Estados Unidos de Colombia until 1885, and then República de Colombia). Politically, Colombia borders to the West with Panama, to the South. with Ecuador and Peru, to the East. with Brazil and Venezuela. For Colombia defense and foreign policy, please check themotorcyclers.com.
