That's another theory I've heard lately - the latest I've heard is that he's from, well, some strange sounding country I'd never heard of before...

Well, he conquered America, I can tell you that, cause I have some spanish roots (Spain), and some portuguese also.

Lately here in Guatemala there are some protests, cuase we have a national holiday (I dont mind that holiday at all, a day off...hehe), and that holiday supposedly celebrates the conquest of him, and some people are argiung about that being a "slavery memory".
