Local History Fuerteventura
Fuerteventura has had several names in history, from the obvious Planaria (in reference to the general flatness of its surface) of the Romans, to the more interesting Fuerteventura (Fort Adventure), of the first conquerors Europeans.
In 1405 the island was subdued by a group of adventurers led by the Norman nobleman Jean de Béthencourt. They discovered that the island was divided into two kingdoms tribal kingdoms separated by a low wall 6 km long: Jandía, in the southern peninsula, which extended extended northwards as far as La Pared, and Maxorata which occupied the rest of the island.
Béthencourt created a permanent base in the mountainous area where Betancuria would later be built, and had a chapel built there.
The village developed around, Santa María de Betancuria, became the capital of the island. The choice of the site was determined by the presence of water (still demonstrated today by the lush vegetation) and the mountainous conformation, which guaranteed a degree of protection against attacks attacks and pirate raids.
Gradually, new settlements spread throughout the island and, in the 17th century, the Europeans occupied El Cotillo, once the seat of the Guanche kingdom of Maxorata.
In that period, the families of the Arias and Saavedra took control of the señorío (the government of the island that took the place of the Spanish Crown).
In the following century, however, some of the island’s militia officers had by then established a rival centre of rival power in La Oliva.
Los Coroneles (‘the Colonels’) gradually assumed effective control of the affairs of Fuerteventura, enriching themselves at the expense of the peasant population, who lived in poverty.
For more information on their rule visit the Casa de los Coroneles in La Oliva, which was their splendid residence.
The militia was disbanded in 1834 and in 1912 the island obtained, along with other lands in the archipelago, a degree of autonomy through the establishment of the cabildo (local authority).
