Excerpt from The Romance of History: Spain
Some difficulty has been experienced in arranging the Historical Summaries. The multiplicity of small independent states into which Spain was divided after the Moorish invasion, rendered an attempt to connect their several histories ... almost impossible. The direct line of Castilian Kings has been followed, commencing from the Gothic stock of the sovereignty of Asturias, the first Christian state in Spain after the invasion, and the parent of all the rest. This circumstance, and the necessity of conforming with the plan observed in the English portion of the Romance of History, have obliged me to discard altogether from my work the annals of Arragon and Navarre, except when they were closely connected with the events which it was my object to illustrate.
