What were the Creoles?

Basically: What are the Creoles and also, who were some famous Creoles that we should know of?

Creoles were the kids of Spanish parents who were born in the Americas and just because they were born in the Americas they had less (political) rights.

Creoles are people that are part African and part European, and many of them lived either in the Caribbean or Louisiana. A Creole that you may know of is Kate Chopin, who was a late eighteenth-century novelist from the United States.
