General InformationEdit

The Kingdom of Asturias Asturias was a small country in northern Iberian Peninsula. After the Muslims under the Umayyad Umayyad Caliphate conquered most part of the Peninsula in 711, the remaining Christians fled towards the mountains in the north. In 722, King Pelagius led a successful revolution and established the Kingdom of Asturias. This was the kingdom that began the Reconquista, which finished in 1492, when Castile Castile conquered Granada Granada, and the last Muslims were expelled from Iberia.

Asturias turned into Leon Leon in 925, when the capital city was moved from Oviedo to Leon. Later, Leon Leon merged with Castile Castile; then later Castile Castile merged with Aragon Aragon and annexed Navarra Navarra. This is why Asturias is considered the birthplace of what would later become Castile Castile and Spain Spain
