Description[edit | edit source]
Living along the eponymous Miskito Coast of Nicaragua and Honduras, the Miskito now number around 200,000 people. In 1625, the Miskito came into a long-lasting political relationship with the British Empire, whose interests in the Caribbean were contrary to those of the Spanish Empire. A loosely constructed Miskito 'kingdom' was formed in that year and a dynasty established by kings who went by English names and came under formal British protectorate status in 1740. Official protectorate status ended a century later and in 1894 the Nicaraguan government incorporated the territory.
