Spain came under Roman rule around 200 BCE. At the end of this rule, Germanic tribes from Central Europe invaded the region, and ruled until the early 8th century, when Islamic power rose, arriving all the way from Baghdad. A very few small regions in the north remained autonomous and under Christian rule. Over the next seven centuries, this Christian rule slowly moved southward, invading and conquering until 1492, with the seizure of the very last Muslim outpost.
What Languages Are Spoken In Spain?
In ancient times Spain ruled one of the largest empires in history. This empire was also one of the first global empires, which spawned an incredible cultural and linguistic legacy. To this point, Spanish is the world’s second-most spoken native language, after Mandarin Chinese. However, there is another language spoken in Spain: Catalan. How did Spain come to have two languages? As early as the late tenth century, the region in the northeast of Spain, Catalonia, was becoming increasingly independent. In 1137, with the royal marriage of the king of Barcelona and the queen of Catalonia, the Catalan region adopted the Principality of Catalonia, developing its own system of courts and constitutions.
After the Spanish Civil War, leaders forbid the use of the Catalan language and abolished the Catalan government.
