Well still he disobeyed his superior. Never a good thing in any military.

As for getting in with the Spanish King...

He send a boat to the spanish Emperator, Carlos V. He explained the situation....and he also sent a fabolous tresoure.
The time old story of money talks and walks.

hahaha. Yes, money ruled and rules the world. That´s for sure. With my post I was trying to explain that the spanish administration in Cuba was not well stablished. And the people in the administration were only looking for their personal interests. If Cortés did something wrong it was validated in 1522 by carlos V, the Emperator, that´s why I say that you can´t consider him a traitor, because a traitor is an outlaw.

Of course, but he did not hurt his country. Actually he got many territories for the spanish King and a great amount of treasures.
