(Dictionary of Names)


The area that is now Aragon was Roman province until the C5th AD when it was taken by the Visigoths who lost it to the Moors in the C8th. It became a kingdom in 1035 and grew in strength during the Middle Ages to control most of the eastern area including Catalonia, Valencia, and the Balearic islands. The marriage of Ferdinand II of Aragon to Isabella of Castile in 1479 united the two kingdoms and they combined to expel the Moors in 1492. They also financed Columbus' expedition to the New World. Aragon is now an autonomous region of north-east Spain.
