Incidentally Argentina didn't even exist as a country until more than 300 years later, when these stolen lands were assimilated into the newly created entity of Argentina in 1810.
In the Argentine texts, the loss of the Falkland Islands is added to the loss of great territories allegedly forfeited to Chile and Brazil, and to the loss of Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay in their entirety: these countries supposedly should have been inherited by Argentina from Spain.
I suspect these ancient claims are only applied to lands inhabited by 'gringo'... for now.
