Catalonia coins catalog with values

 

In 1035, Ramon Berenguer I became Count of Barcelona. During his reign, the codification of Catalan law began. In the early twelfth century, under his grandson Ramon Berenguer III, the name "Catalonia" appeared in documents for the first time.
In the same XII century, as a result of a dynastically favorable alliance between Count Ramon Berenguer IV of Barcelona and Petronila of Aragon, the Kingdom of Aragon began to form.

The marriage of Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella of Castile initiated the formation of the Kingdom of Spain, which took shape around 1516. For nearly two centuries, Castile and Aragon retained their rights and freedoms: political organization, laws, courts, and minted their own currency. Catalonia had one of the first parliaments in Europe, the Catalan Cortes.

Philip II (King of Spain from 1556 to 1598) was the first to fight Catalonia's autonomy. Philip ignored the decision of the Cortes, imposed additional taxes on the population and even executed representatives of some Aragonese noble families.

In 1640-1652, the first major Catalan revolt against royal absolutism took place - the Reaper Rebellion or "War of the Reapers". For the first time slogans about the separation of Catalonia from Spain were heard. The reason for the war was the desire of Philip IV to eliminate the autonomy of Catalonia. The rebels resisted for many years with the support of the King of France. Under the protectorate of Louis XIII, the Catalan Republic was proclaimed. But the victory could not be maintained. In 1652, the Spanish king's army captured Catalonia.
