Valencia remained under Rome until AD 413, when it was captured by the Visigoths. The Moors took it from the Visigoths in 714, and in 1021 they made it the capital of the independent kingdom of Valencia. Thereafter Valencia shared the fortunes of the kingdom. The city had a high level of prosperity until the early 17th century, when a commercial decline set in because of the expulsion of Moorish traders.
Today Valencia is the capital of Valencia autonomous region and of Valencia Province.
