This epilogue examines the nineteenth-century decline of Spanish influence against the backdrop of rival European and upstart American imperial ambitions in the Pacific. It discusses the death of the conceptual Spanish Lake alongside the literal one with the diplomatic surrender to Germany and the United States. It also reflects upon the legacies of archipelagic Hispanization into the twenty-first century. It argues that the middle ground between competing cultural influences was the greatest among myriad reasons why the Spanish regime's ambitious program of cultural integration was only partially implemented in the Philippines. However, a successful example of Castilian assimilation was the conversion of most of the islands' inhabitants to Iberian Catholicism.
