Kingdom of Asturias (Age of Charlemagne) Faction

In the northwest of Iberia, along the Cantabrian mountains, the Asturians stand tall. Although the Visigoths have been destroyed and their kingdom shattered, their spirit lives on.

The Kingdom of Asturias began in the Roman province of Gallaecia, a melting pot of tribes during antiquity. During the fall of the Roman Empire, Asturian an identity was formed through their constant feuding between the rival Visigoths and Suebi. When the Umayyad Caliphate invaded Iberia in AD711, the Visigoths buckled; their king was betrayed and murdered, and the Muslim invaders stormed the south of the Peninsula, almost wiping out the remainder of the Visigothic aristocracy. Yet a surviving nobleman, Pelagio, fled to Asturias, where he began to resist the Caliphate, leading Christian forces to victory over the Muslims at the Battle of Covadonga in AD722; a turning point in the struggle - essentially the beginning of the Reconquista. Pelagio\'s resultant power structure endured, lasting until after his death in AD737. His successors, Alphonse and Fruela, extended Asturian borders further. This period was also known for the construction of splendid Asturian architecture, with basilicas and monuments appearing across the region. Fruela, nevertheless, was known as "the Cruel" after he assassinated his brother in order to gain total control.

Now, Fruela\'s cruel hubris has earned, in turn, his death at the hands of a disgruntled cousin, Aurelius, who has ascended to the throne in his place. To the south, the newly-formed Emirate of Cordoba is showing great determination under its new leadership. Fortunately, to the north Asturias\' staunch Christian allies - the Franks - can be relied upon to stand against the Islamic hordes. Asturias, on the front line, must remain firm against this onslaught and emerge, as it always has done, victorious!
