The concessions initially granted by kings and Christian lords to attract settlers to the lands conquered from the Muslims were later transformed into fueros and charters. In turn, these fueros gave way to by-laws (ordenanzas). The discovery of America brought with it the establishment of numerous settlements, which needed their own laws and regulations. The by-laws of the Late Middle Ages served as a model for the organisation of these new colonial settlements.
