HISTORY. Active colonization of the Pacific coast was undertaken by Spaniards from Panama, beginning in 1523. After links with other Central American territories, and Mexico, Nicaragua became completely independent in 1838, but subject to a prolonged feud between the ‘Liberals’ of León and the ‘Conservatives’ of Granada. Mosquitia remained an autonomous kingdom on the Atlantic coast, under British protection until 1860.
