    •  The title of admiral in all of the lands or seas he might discover, which would be inheritance and at the same rank as Admiral of Castile.

    •  The title of Viceroy (hereditary) and governor general on all of the islands or land that he might discover or conquer in said seas, receiving the right to propose terms for the government of each.

    •  Ten percent of the net product of the merchandise bought, won, found or exchanged within the limits of his admiral territory, setting aside a fifth for the crown.

    •  Commercial jurisdiction over disputes over trade in his admiralship, as corresponding to the position.
