Formerly, the province was named Lomlon (by the Spaniards), later changed to Domblon. In 1635, the island was evangelized and became dependent on the Captaincy General of Philippines (administrative district of Spanish Empire). Due to Moors attacks, a fortress was built with artillery in 3 strongholds - the fortified Cathedral of Romblon (still existing), and Santiago and San Andres (both now in ruins).
