You have to pick a time.
For example, the Pope and a Treaty divided the New World between Spain and Portugal
but North America was being divided between France (early explorer), Spain, England, and Russia. Further, Spain lost holdings in North America by losing wars in other parts of the world.
A map will have curious areas where claims overlapped.
