They're all there, and as John says in a state of rosy good health. I
suppose there must be conquistadores. I can't think of any way pre-15th
century British history could get rid of them.
One possibility, brought up in one of the alt-history groups: Colombus
sails on and never returns; Spanish energies after the Reconquista have to
go somewhere, and these are turned south into Muslim Africa and to the
east. Not likely, perhaps. :)
