Is it C?
No, England wasnt really a part of this.
"In 1493, after reports of Columbus’s discoveries had reached them, the Spanish rulers Ferdinand and Isabella enlisted papal support for their claims to the New World in order to inhibit the Portuguese and other possible rival claimants. To accommodate them, the Spanish-born pope Alexander VI issued bulls setting up a line of demarcation from pole to pole 100 leagues (about 320 miles) west of the Cape Verde Islands. Spain was given exclusive rights to all newly discovered and undiscovered lands in the region west of the line. Portuguese expeditions were to keep to the east of the line. Neither power was to occupy any territory already in the hands of a Christian ruler." - from Encylopedia Britannica
So i'd say D
But that excerpt doesn't say anything about Spain's allies.
That is what i am saying, the treaty didnt really havinf anything to do with spains allies and more with seperating the New World.
Oh, so would it be D? Google says that they settled land disputes over Christopher Columbus's discoveries.
