Barbados is a sovereign island country in the Lesser Antilles, in the Americas. It is 34km in length and up to 23km in width, covering an area of abbr=on432. It is situated in the western area of the North Atlantic and abbr=on100 east of the Windward Islands and the Caribbean Sea; therein, it is about abbr=on168 east of the islands of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and abbr=on400 north-east of Trinidad and Tobago. Barbados is outside of the principal Atlantic hurricane belt.Inhabited by Kalinago people since the 13th century, and prior to that by other Amerindians, Barbados was visited by Spanish navigators in the late 15th century and claimed for the Spanish Crown. It first appeared in a Spanish map in 1511. The Portuguese visited the island in 1536, but they left it unclaimed, with their only remnants being an introduction of wild hogs for a good supply of meat whenever the island was visited. An English ship, the Olive Blossom, arrived in Barbados in 1625; its men took possession of it in the name of King James I. In 1627, the first permanent settlers arrived from England, and it became an English and later British colony.
