Excerpt: A Kingdom of Galicia (Galician: ) existed in some form from the time the conquered Roman diocese of Hispania was divided between the Alans, Suebi and Vandals in 411 until the 1833 territorial division of Spain during the regency of Maria Cristina. The region of Gallaecia had been a Roman province since the administrative reforms of the Tetrarchy (293), and Galicia has been an administrative subdivision of Spain from 1833 to the present, and semi-autonomous since the Galician Statute of Autonomy of 1981. The first Galician kingdom was the Suebic Kingdom with its capital at Braga. The early history of this kingdom is one of fluctuating boundaries, as the Suebi were not originally ruled by a single monarch and the territory of Roman Gallaecia was shared with the Hasdingi, a Vandalic tribe. The boundaries of the kingdom became more static only with the rise of the Visigothic Kingdom, which conquered the Suebi in 58485. Galicia was thus absorbed into the Visigothic Kingdom, but it was regularly distinguished from the rest of Hispania and from the province of Septimania north of the Pyrenees. There is slim evidence that sub-kings may have been appointed in Galicia under the later Visigoths, and Galicia alone of all the regions securely controlled by the Visigoths evaded conquest during the Islamic invasion of 711. Subsequently, Galicia was incorporated, through a serious of military campaigns, into the Kingdom of Asturias. Theodemir (or Ariamir), king of Galicia with the bishops: Lucrecio, Andrew and Martin. Codex Vigilanus (or Albeldensis), Escurial library.The origin of the kingdom lies in the fifth century, when Suebi settled permanently in the former Roman province called Gallaecia.
