Has Portugal and Spain ever been a part of the same country?

If so, how did Portugal attain independence from Spain? Who led Portugal into independence against Spain?

Between 1580 and 1640 they were ruled by one king. But legally were two separate countries.

"apart" = separate from each other

"a part" = one of a set, joined together to make a whole
