Romblon Island is located within Sibuyan Sea, and is under jurisdiction of the Romblon municipality, the seat of government for Romblon province. The island has a population of around 38,760 people (2015 census).
- Romblon is among the three major islands of Romblon Province, Philippines. The other two are Tablas Island and Sibuyan Island.
- Formerly, the province of Romblon was called Lomlon, meaning a nest to warm the eggs of a bird. This was due to the arrival of Spaniards, who when asking about the name of the island accidentally pointed at a place where a bird was nesting, and native people responded "Lomlom", hence the misunderstanding. The name was later changed to Domblon.
- The first Romblon inhabitants were Negritos tribes of Panay as well as Mindoro Mangyan tribes. The discovery of artistic material in Banton island's caves demonstrates the existence of an ancient civilization and Aboriginal culture.
- In 1635 Romblon Island was evangelized by Spanish Recollect and became dependent on the Captaincy General of Philippines. The first secluded isle, Father Pedro de San Jose Rojas, was soon forced to escape and hide before the assault of Moors, burning the church and enslaving lots of Christians. Due to the attacks, a fortress was built with artillery in 3 strongholds. The fortified church is present-day cathedral of Romblon. The 2 forts, Santiago and San Andres are now in ruins.
