The Medieval Kingdom of Navarre, which sat between France and Spain, has been a Roman Province; part of the Umayyad Emirate; a tributary of Spain, and then joined with the Kingdom of France in the 16th century. The land was originally settled by the Vascones, who spoke a Basque language still spoken today. Navarre is well known for its extraordinary strong rulers, who fought for their right to rule, and to choose who would rule after them. Many successful queens ruled the Kingdom of Navarre as it was not troubled by the Salic Law of Northern France.
