This is a list of the kings and queens of Aragon. The Kingdom of Aragon was created sometime between 950 and 1035 when the County of Aragon, acquired by the Kingdom of Navarre in the tenth century, was separated from Navarre in accordance with the will of King Sancho III. In 1164, the marriage of the Aragonese princess Petronila and the Catalan count Ramon Berenguer IV created a dynastic union from which what modern historians call the Crown of Aragon was born. In the thirteenth century the kingdoms of Valencia and Sicily were added to the Crown, in the fourteenth the Kingdom of Sardinia and Corsica; the Crown of Aragon continued to exist until 1713 when its separate constitutional systems were swept away in the Nueva Planta decrees at the end of the War of the Spanish Succession. With the death of Sancho III of Navarre, Aragon was inherited by his son Ramiro as an autonomous state. While this dynasty is sometimes referred to as Aragonese in texts, in they were not part of the House of Aragon of the previous dynasty, but of the House of Trastámara, which concurrently ruled the Crown of Castile.
During the Catalan Civil War, there were three who claimed his throne, though this never included the Kingdom of Valencia. Aragon itself stayed loyal to Philip IV during the Reapers' War while Catalonia switched allegiance to Louis XIII and Louis XIV of France the Sun-King, see List of Counts of Barcelona. Portugal seceded in 1640. Charles II died without heirs. During the war Philip d'Anjou, the first of the Bourbon empire in Spain, disbanded the Crown of Aragon. After this time, there are no more Aragonese monarchs. Spanish monarchs up to Isabella II, while styling themselves king/queen of Spain on coins, still used some of the traditional nomenclature of the defunct Crown of Aragon in their official documents: King/Queen of Castile, Aragon, both Sicilies, Navarra, Toledo, Galicia, Sevilla, Cordova, Murcia, the Algarve, Gibraltar, the Canary Islands, the Eastern & Western Indias, the Islands & Mainland of the Ocean sea.

James Hyman is a DJ, Radio & TV presenter, Music Supervisor and founder of The Hyman Archive. Hyman put aside his place at University of Manchester to work at MTV Europe in the Press office, despite his parents' misgivings. For over 25 years, Hyman has been collecting magazines, newsletters, brochures and other printed material; the theme of Hyman's collecting is'popular culture in print'. He began collecting to assist his research at MTV Europe, where he was a script writer and programme producer; this was in a period where, according to Hyman, "magazines were the internet". HYMAG contains over 5,000 individual title publications and over 120,000 individual issues as of February 2020. On 1 August 2012, Guinness World Records verified that, "The largest collection of magazines consists of 50,953 magazines and belongs to James Hyman, in London, UK". At that time, the collection featured 2,312 unique publications amongst the 50,953 magazines; the process of counting the magazines took 128 days as James and Tory Turk worked their way through 450 crates filled with magazines.
In September 2014, with an investor, Hyman formed The Hyman Archive Ltd. in order to obtain an ECL with copyright holders contained within the collection, to digitise and meta-tag the collection, making it available in a commercial offering. Hyman hopes to have secured an ECL by Spring 2016; the company will begin the process of digitising the collection's approximate 10 million pages. Hyman worked at MTV Europe, as a Press Officer as a programmer and director, his MTV shows, including Party Zone featured in-depth interviews with the likes of The Prodigy, Moby, David Holmes, The Chemical Brothers, Paul Oakenfold, Aphex Twin. Hyman co-presented MTV's Up For It and fronted a spin-off from MTV's Bytesize programme, providing daily reports on Internet news & web sites. In 1992 with Coldcut produced a TV Megamix for Canal+ weekly pop-culture show, pre-empting his MTV Megamix format and shows that began broadcast on MTV Europe in 1998. Presented on Atlantic 252 and Xfm London as producer / presenter of The Rinse & co-presenter / producer of The Remix, the latter nominated for 2003 Sony Radio Academy Award.
The Rinse focused on Dance music with Hyman championing other emerging music trends such as Bastard pop. The Remix focused on mash-up remixes and, according to The Guardian, "led the craze" which caused some controversy when a cease and desist order was issued for playing "A Stroke of Genius" by The Freelance Hellraiser; the Xfm shows paved the way for the release of a number of albums: The Remix and The Remix 2 Covered 8 themed mix CDs including: Pulp Mixin' which remixed the work of Quentin Tarantino and Licence To Thrill, an audio homage to James Bond, which featured in The Daily Telegraph's top 5 CDs of 2004 September 2007, Hyman left Xfm to concentrate on his music supervision company JLH and other broadcast projects. A one-hour documentary about Paul Anka and his song "My Way" was produced by Hyman and Nick Minter as part of BBC Radio 2's series, "Song Stories", first broadcast 23 February 2011, it was presented by Michael Buble and featured interviews with David Bowie, Donald Trump, Julien Temple and Steve Wynn on BBC Radio 2.
Hyman expanded his Quentin Tarantino mix tape, Pulp Mixin', to create a feature-length mash-up film, with the provisional title James Hyman/Quentin Tarantino Movie Mash-Up. It blends Tarantino's film footage with music videos, including those of the music used in the films. James Hyman – official site James Hyman discography at Discogs James Hyman on IMDb
