I saw an article about how in the next US census, Portuguese people will be considered Hispanic. Of course this upsets some Portuguese nationals, but Roman Hispania included modern Portugal so from an analytical point view this makes sense. I know there is considerable history behind this; in the middle ages Hispania, España and Espanha were geographic terms only and various Iberian kingdoms including Portugal were known as "little Spains." At what point did this change so that Portugal was no longer "Hispanic"? Was it the merged kingdoms of Leon-Castile and crown of Aragon taking the name? The failure of the Iberian union?
