Description[edit | edit source]

The Astures were a Celtic people which occupied most of the northern coast of Spain. They battled against the Roman Empire until their defeat by Caesar Augustus' legions between 29 and 19 BCE. Under the Visigothic kingdom of Toledo, there were uneasy relations between Visigoths and Asturians. In 722 CE, king Pelayo defeated the Umayyad Muslim troops at Covadonga, establishing the Asturian Kingdom, which lasted until 910 CE, when the capital town was moved from Oviedo to Leon. Nowadays, Asturias is an autonomous community of Spain.
