Flag of Madeira
Madeira is a Portuguese archipelago situated in the northern Atlantic Ocean, southwest of Portugal, with Funchal serving as its capital. The island was claimed by Portugal in 1419 and settled after 1420, the first territorial discovery of the Portuguese Age of Discovery. The island was involved with the sugar trade, and it was also known for its Madeira wine. In 1976, the new government of Portugal granted autonomy to both Madeira and the Azores, and the island grew to have a population of 289,000 in 2016.
