Barbados is a sovereign country in the Lesser Antilles. Visited by Spanish navigators in the late 15th century and claimed for the Spanish Crown, it first appears on a Spanish map in 1511. The Portuguese visited in 1536, but left it unclaimed.

In 1624, the first English ship, the Olive Blossom arrived, and Barbados was claimed for James I. In 1627 the first permanent English settlers arrived, and it became an English and later British colony.
