THE REGIONS OF SPAIN

Aragon


Aragon, which is a region of northeastern Spain in the Iberian peninsula. Aragon has a proud cultural heritage and its own unique language. In 1137, the regions of Aragon and Catalonia united to form the Crown of Aragon, whose illustrious line of kings led the reconquest of the eastern peninsula from the Muslims. The Crown of Aragon extended its Mediterranean empire with the recapture of Mallorca in 1229 and Sicily in 1282 and it remained an important power throughout the Middle Ages. In 1469, King Ferdinand of Aragon married Isabella of Castile and this union brought together the two most powerful kingdoms of Spain to create a united Spanish nation.

THE MOORS

Following the decline of the Roman Empire, in the 5th century AD, the Visigoths came to control the peninsula. Part of the Visigothic legacy to Spanish civilization was the introduction of the institution of monarchy. Several centuries later, in 711, the Visigothic kingdom in Spain was invaded by Muslims. Aside from a nucleus of resistance which was maintained in the north, the Muslim victory was complete by the year 718.
