This storyboard does not have a description.
Pelayo was the head of the personal guard of the visigoth king Roderic.
Pelayo and King Roderic were cousins and belonged to the Chindasvinto family.
Roderic, the muslims are coming! We have to go to Guadalete and battle them!
Roderic dies in the battle of Guadalete in 711. The Visigoth kingdom collapses and the Iberian Peninsula falls into the hands of Muslims.
I will take revenge!
In 722 Pelayo and his followers attracted Arab troops, captained by Alqama, to the cold and abrupt valley of Covadonga.
Let´s get out of here we are not going to win this battle.
Pelayo began the Reconquest and became the first king of Asturias.
The Iberian Peninsula will be Christian again!
