What is happening in Spain and Portugal in 200CE

By this date, the Iberian Peninsula has been a part of the Roman empire for centuries, and is thoroughly Romanized. Full Roman citizenship is common throughout the peninsula, and it is likely that all free inhabitants enjoy at least the Latin citizenship (a type of second-class Roman citizenship).

Baetica is one of the most Romanized provinces of the empire, and has contributed many leading senatorial families, including those of the emperors Trajan and Hadrian. Earlier, the famous Roman philosopher Seneca and poet Martial had their origins in Spain. The region is a prosperous part of the imperial economic system, producing metals, wine, olive oil and manufactured goods such as glassware and textiles.
