Best Answer

The Spanish king or queen granted haciendas to the viceroys they placed in control of various parts of their empire that they had during their span of power in the New World (1521-1898). They also granted haciendas to other nobles of the quasi-feudal system that existed such as grandees, hidalgos, and other small classes that existed within the Spanish feudal system, which was very unique to the French/English one and very similar to the Portuguese one.
