Comments: Mallorca is a small kingdom based in the Balearic Islands, located in the Mediterranean Sea, east of Spain and south of France. In ancient times the islands were occupied by the Romans after the Punic Wars, and nothing important happened thereafter for centuries. During the Islamic conquest and the "Reconquista" they passed back and forth several times, until, in 1229, the islands fell definitively under Catalan influence.
With the addition of the County of Rosellon , in the north of Spain, the islands were created as a separate kingdom in 1276, under a cadet branch of the Catalan royal house. The king of Mallorca also holds in personal fief the city of Montpellier , in southern France.
