This is a list of the rulers of the Kingdom of Asturias, which was a Kingdom in the Iberian peninsula. During the reign of Ordoño I, the kingdom of Asturias progressively came to be known as the Kingdom of León. The kingdom was split in 910 and Fruela received the Asturias.

For later kings, see the list of Leonese monarchs and the list of Galician monarchs. From 1388, the title Prince of Asturias has been used for the heirs to the Castillian and Spanish thrones.
