    Portugal:

    - Cape Verde

    - Guinea-Bissau

    - Angola

    - S.Tome and Principe

    - Mozambique

    All african countries, from around the 1450's to 1974.

    - Brazil, from 1500 to 1822.

    - Goa

    - Daman

    - Diu

    Territories in India, from 1498 to 1961.

    - East-Timor, near Indonesia, from 1530 to 1976.

    - Macau in China, from 1520 to 1999.

    Those were the longest colonized territories, but from 1415 to the 1620's Portugal had the total control and monopoly of all of Africa, the whole Indian Ocean and all countries in Asia, like it was agreed on the Tordesillas Treaty.

    USA left in 1776, Ireland left in 1922

    There was some suffering in the British empire (Quite a lot in India) But there was a lot of benefits.

    The guy below me has got the date wrong not till 1974

    Also they didn't control all of africa, asia and south america, they controlled like three in africa, 1 in south america (fair enough it was brazil) and barely anything in asia, but they did control most of the oceans
