I really like how the game utterly refuses to let you genocide a nation unless you really work for it. I took out almost all of Spain's cities to French, but every so often they take a few cities back.

It wil not allow you to take out the small settlements. They stay their original nationality unless the computer allows another country to invade them. When you eliminate all the cities of one country, they will start sending Invasion Forces from the small settlements to take them back Since the settlements are dispersed all over the map, you cannot watch them all. You could be near Trinidad and the computer will launch an invasion force near Vera Cruz or St. Augustine.
I have taken over all the cities and gave them to one nation several times. Once that happens, the settlements launch a lot of Invasion forces and quickly start taking the cities back.

When this happens, it re-sets the Daughter of the newly conquered city. It assumes a new Governor is there and a different Daughter. So, you can go through the entire courtship again.

By the way, don't know if you know this but once you conquer a city and convert it to another country, you cannot attack that city again until another country conquers it and converts it to their country.

Just out of curiosity, was that caveat about not able to change nationality in a row part of the patch that makes Monty have a rapier? I remember being too chicken to apply that patch as a child- in running the Mac version which was prepatched
