Well, I need some help in locating from this article, which was original material by me, and which was comments by other participants, specially Barry. --Chlewey 10:16, 11 Feb 2005 (PST)

There are descrepencies between the Castile and Leon page and the History of Filipinas page. PLEASE REVIEW! The former states that Filipinas got its independence sometime around or after 1919. The latter states that it got its independence in 1898 (which is the same as *here* and my main POD for IB-Filipinas). Boreanesia 04:21, 13 Feb 2005 (PST)


To Do

  • Review the History and separate Castilian History from the other Iberan kingdoms.
  • Add some more content to the Geography Section
  • Review the section on Administrative divisions, The Kingdom should be divided in: DONE.
    • Nations and Territories
      • Autonomous Communities and Governorships.
        • No provinces *here*
  • Add a culture section.
  • Move a big deal of the content to main articles and summarize the interesting. DONE with History.

Autonomic vs. autonomous

Are autonomic and autonomous synonymous? I assumed they were since the only Spanish word referenced is 'autonĂ³mica'. Therefore, I have changed all references in the article to 'autonomic'. Caeruleancentaur 16:35, 12 May 2011 (PDT)

I don't think they are synonyms. Autonomous means "without external control" while autonomic means "involuntary" or "without conscious control". Elemtilas 17:02, 12 May 2011 (PDT)


The components of Castile & Leon are mentioned three times in the article, a bit redundant. Caeruleancentaur 16:36, 12 May 2011 (PDT)


How important is Madrid? It would seem to be QAA that it's at least the biggest city in Castile, if not necessarily the capital (think NYC vs DC *here*, except smaller-scale). Juan Martin Velez Linares 9:29, 16 September 2015 (CDT)

I'll have to agree, QAA, unless QSS is explicit otherwise. It could well be that it was renamed, at some point. Looking at Castilian Spain, it appears that the Capital was never moved to Madrid, because Spain never happened *there*. No Capital, no prominence, people settled in other locales. Madrid's semi-central, and maybe that's why people moved there *here*?BoArthur 07:58, 16 September 2015 (PDT)
Mmm. Good point. According to Wikipedia the capital of the Crown of Castile moved between Burgos, Toledo, Madrid, and Valladolid until Philip II (who probably didn't exist/was too busy being Aragonese *there*) fixed it to Madrid. Which brings us to the question: which of the four cities is the capital? Or are all four serving as capitals, working similar to the moving seat of government/dispersed government offices of the HRE? Certainly an interesting topic.

On the Castilian Spain page, it's clearly Valladolid. BoArthur 16:08, 16 September 2015 (PDT)
Yeah, that's what I thought it was. (where did I get all that capital stuff? must not have completely woken up this morning...) But how big would it be *there*? Kind of wondering what the biggest city in Castilian Spain is... Juan Martin Velez Linares 18:33, 16 September 2015 (CDT)
I'm going to say Vallidolid, since it's the capital. BoArthur 16:55, 16 September 2015 (PDT)
