Fuerteventura was conquered by the Normans in 1402. At that time, the indigenous Majo islanders were ruled by two kings: Guize in Maxorata in the north, and Ayose in Jandía in the south. After surrendering, the kings assumed Christian names: Luis and Alfonso, respectively. The boundary between the two original kingdoms is thought to have passed close to the site upon which Betancuria was founded.
The 4.5m high bronze sculptures of the Majo kings are by Emiliano Hernández and were donated by the Spanish international construction group OHL.
