The Duke City was established as the Villa of Albuquerque in February of 1660, by Don Fransisco Fernández de la Cueva, the viceroy of New Spain. He was the 8th Duke of Albuquerque, Spain.
Back in the 17th century, Alburquerque, Spain was a hamlet in the mountains of Spain, close to the border with Portugal. Because of its proximity to the border, and depending on the politics at the time, Albuquerque sometimes found itself to be in Portugal.
Today, Albuquerque is a small metroplex, compared to other major cities. It is 400+ years old.
