Principality of Asturias

The Principality of Asturias is an autonomous community composed of a single province. It is bounded to the west by the province of Lugo (Galicia), to the north by the Bay of Biscay, to the east by Cantabria, and to the south by the province of León (Castile y León). It is called a Principality on historical grounds, ever since Spain's King John I of Castile created an entitlement in 1388 conferring on the heir to the Spanish Crown the designation of "Prince of Asturias". The capital is Oviedo, and the most densely populated city is Gijón.

The Principality has a legislative assembly called the Junta General del Principado, harking back to an age-old medieval system of representation of the councils before the Crown. It is home to two indigenous languages that enjoy a similar status: Asturian or Bable, and Eonaviego or Galaic-Asturian, spoken at the councils held in the westernmost localities.

Its Statute of Autonomy was ratified on January 30, 1982.
