Asturias, at its start, is a Chalcedonian Leonese salic monarchy located mainly in the Asturias and Vasconia areas, Iberia region of the Western Europe subcontinent. Asturias emerges from Sunni Umayyad in 718, gaining cores, bordering fellow Chalcedonian Aquitaine east, Sunni Umayyad south and the waters of the Bay of Biscay (North Atlantic region).
Asturias will be annexed by León in 924 and will never appear on-map again.
Called "Asturias" on-file
The Kingdom of Asturias was a small country in northern Iberian Peninsula. After the Muslims under the 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 conquered Granada, and the last Muslims were expelled from Iberia.
Asturias turned into Leon in 925, when the capital city was moved from Oviedo to Leon. Later, Leon merged with Castile; then later Castile merged with Aragon and annexed Navarra. This is why Asturias is considered the birthplace of what would later become Castile and Spain
