Originally Iguvium, Gubbio was an important town of the Umbrian people prior to becoming a Roman municipium in the 2nd century BC.  It was sacked by the Goths, it was mentioned as a bishopric in 413 and it remained a powerful independent commune until it was surrendered to the dukes of Urbino in 1384.  In the 11th century the town sent 1,000 knights on the First Crusade.  Gubbio became one of the Papal States in 1624.  In 1860 Gubbio was incorporated into the Kingdom of Italy.  Historical monuments include the 1st century Roman theatre, the Palazzo dei Consoli (1332–1349), the 15th century Palazzo Ducale and the 13th century cathedral.
