The Kingdom of Seville ( Spanish : Reino de Sevilla ) was a rulership connected to the Kingdom of Castile-Léon in what is now Spain .


The kingdom was founded in 1248 when King Ferdinand III. the saint of Castile conquered the Islamic-Moorish Taifa kingdom of Seville during the Reconquista . As a Christian kingdom, it was now associated with the Crown of Castile , with which it remained institutionally associated throughout its history. Cádiz , conquered by King Alfonso X in 1262 , was also linked to the Kingdom of Seville. The cities of Teba , Antequera and Archidona in the east and the associated territories were only added in the years 1330, 1410 and 1462 respectively.

Together with the kingdoms of Cordoba (1236), Jaén (1246) and Granada (1492), Seville formed the four kingdoms of Andalusia (cuatro reinos de Andalucía) of the Crown of Castile.

In the course of the territorial reorganization of Spain (1833) carried out by the Interior Minister Francisco Javier de Burgos , the kingdom was divided into the provinces of Seville , Cádiz and Huelva , which in turn formed the historical region of Andalusia with the provinces of Granada , Almería , Málaga , Córdoba and Jaén , which has existed since 1982 as one of the 17 autonomous communities in Spain (Comunidad Autónoma) to this day.
