King Mauregato of Asturias and Queen Creusa

Mauregato the Usurper (Spanish: Mauregato) was the king of Asturias from 783 to 788 or 789. He was an illegitimate son of Alfonso I, supposedly by a Moorish serf. He usurped the throne on the death of Silo, his brother-in-law (the husband of his half sister Adosinda). The nobility had elected Alfonso II at Adosinda's insistence, but Mauregato assembled a large army of supporters and forced Alfonso into Álava.

Creusa (died 789) was a queen consort of Asturias for her marriage to King Mauregato of Asturias, illegitimate son of King Alfonso I of Asturias.
Queen Creusa was buried in the church of San Pedro de Trubia (present-day Saint Peter of Nora), according to a document dated October 30, 863, mentioning that Mauregato's wife, and Hermenegildo's mother, had been buried in that church.
