Why did the Portuguese Empire collapse?



Why did the Portuguese Empire collapse?
Portugal gained possessions in India, the East Indies, and Brazil. Besides the footholds in some parts of the world, Portugal was a country that discovered other places and establish trade routes to China and Japan. And their empire will start to exist as scarcely empire. It was a commercial operation based on possession of fortifications and posts strategically situated for trade. Portugal didn't focus on attacking and gaining tons of land from Oriental Kingdoms due to the probably the lack of necessary manpower and the huge distance to do so. the Portuguese also relied on alliances with native states and didn't dominate the Indian Ocean due to it's vastness, but managed to establish strongholds to assure a trade network. ♦Consider to Support the Channel of Patreon and gain cool stuff: https://www.patreon.com/Knowledgia ♦Please consider to SUBSCRIBE : https://goo.gl/YJNqek ♦Music Used : Extinction Level Event - Jingle Punks Victory Epic War Music - Ender Guney: GENERIC MUSIC CINEMATIC Music Kevin MacLeod - Ibn Al Noor Kevin MacLeod - Rites Kevin MacLeod - BTS Prolog ♦Sources : https://www.britannica.com/place/Port... http://www.historyworld.net/wrldhis/P... http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/e...
