From the Paper:

"The first inhabitants of Galicia were said to be tribes which shared some Celtic customs. The Romans first came to Galicia in 137-136 BC. Galicia was invaded by the Romans. In 411, it was conquered by the Suevi. It was the Suevi "who formed the first medieval kingdom to be created in Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire." In 584, Galicia fell under Visigoth control during which time British immigrants settled in the northern part of Galicia. When Ferdinand I of Castile divided his kingdom among his sons in 1063, Galicia was given to Garcia II of Galicia."
