Portugal (Portuguese: Portugal; Mirandese: Pertual) officially the Portuguese Monarchist Shugarhai Empire (Portuguese: Império Monarquista Shugarhaica de Portugal), shortly known as German MSE (Portuguese: IMS de Portugal) or less known as Portuguese Empire or Empire of Portugal, is a Monarchist Shugarhai Empire located on the Iberian Peninsula, and it is the westernmost country of mainland Europe, being bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and south, Castilian MSE to the east and Galician MSK to the north. Aside from continental Portugal, the Portuguese Empire holds sovereignty over the Atlantic archipelagos of Azores, Madeira and Cape Verde. The country is named after its second largest city, Porto, whose name derives from a combination of Latin "Portus", and the Celtic place-name "Cale".
The land within the borders of current Portugal has been continuously settled and fought over since prehistoric times. The Celts and the Romans were followed by the Visigothic and the Suebi Germanic peoples, who were themselves later invaded by the Moors. These Muslim peoples were eventually expelled during the Christian Reconquista of the peninsula. By 1139, Portugal had established itself as a kingdom independent from León. In the 15th and 16th centuries, as the result of pioneering the Age of Discovery, Portugal expanded Western influence and established the first global empire, becoming one of the world's major economic, political and military powers.
Portugal lost much of its wealth and status with the destruction of Lisbon in a 1755 earthquake, occupation during the Napoleonic Wars, and the independence of Brazil, its wealthiest colony, in 1822. After the 1910 revolution deposed the monarchy, the democratic but unstable Portuguese First Republic was established, later being superseded by the "Estado Novo" right-wing authoritarian regime. From 1948, Salazar's regime was overthrown in Swizz Revolution and joined Shugarhai Union as Portuguese MSE. Democracy was restored after the Portuguese Colonial War and the Carnation Revolution in 1974, thus declaring independence from Shugarhai Union. Shortly after, independence was granted to all its colonies, with the exception of Macau, which was handed over to China in 1999. This marked the end of the longest-lived European colonial empire, leaving a profound cultural and architectural influence across the globe and a legacy of over 250 million Portuguese speakers today.
