Which spanish class included spanish colonists born in the americas?
The Spanish class that included Spanish colonists born in the Americas were the Criollos.
In the Spanish colonial caste system, a criollo was someone who was ethnic Spanish but was born in the colonies. Criollo's were in this hierarchy under peninsulares (Spaniards born in Europe), and above the Mestizos and the Mulattos. The measure of whether someone was a criollo was not particularly strict. Everyone who was born in the colonies and was at least 5 / 6th ethnic Spanish was criollo, so many criollo's were not "pure" white but had a small part of Native American or African background. Sometimes it was even possible for someone who was more than 1 / 6th non-white to buy recognition as a criollo. In the 18th century, the criollo's were influenced by the Enlightenment. They started calling themselves americanos and demanded equivalence with the peninsulares. The Mexican War of Independence and the South American Wars of Independence, such as the Argentine, were therefore largely led by belligerent criollos.
Criollos included spanish colonists born in the Americas.
Mestizos included spanish colonists born in the Americas.
the answer is criollos
The Criollos were a social class in the caste system of the overseas colonies established by Spain in the 16th century, especially in Latin America.
The name was used for people of pure or mostly Spanish blood, but who were born in the colony.
On the frontier of the Spanish empire, criollos held more important positions in the colonial administration because of the scarcity of peninsulars and their reluctance to serve in remote regions.
