Nuevo Santander in New Spain, 1824.

Nuevo Santander (New Santander) was a region of the Viceroyalty of New Spain, corresponding generally to the modern Mexicanmarker state of Tamaulipasmarker and southern Texas. Nuevo Santander was named after Santander, Spainmarker, and settled by Spanish American colonists in a concerted settlement campaign peaking in 1748-1750. It fell under the jurisdiction of the Real Audiencia of Guadalajara in judicial matters, and in 1776 Nuevo Santander became part of the semi-autonomous Commandancy General of the Provincias Internas.
