Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland. Dublin is in the province of Leinster on Ireland's east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey. The city has an urban area population of 1,173,179. The population of the Greater Dublin Area as of 2016, was 1,904,806 people.
The area of Dublin Bay has been inhabited by humans since prehistoric times, but the writings of Ptolemy (the Greco-Roman astronomer and Cartographer) in about 140 AD provide possibly the earliest reference to a settlement there. He called the settlement Eblana polis.
Dublin celebrated its 'official' millennium in 1988 AD, meaning that the Irish government recognised 988 AD as the year in which the city was settled and that this first settlement would later become the city of Dublin.
Dublin was established as a Viking settlement in the 10th century and, despite a number of rebellions by the native Irish, it remained largely under Viking control until the Norman Invasion Of Ireland was launched from Wales in 1169.It was upon the death of Muirchertach Mac Lochlainn in early 1166 that Ruaidri Ua Conchobair, King of connacht proceeded to Dublin and was inaugurated King of Ireland without opposition. Arguably, he was the primitive undebated full king of Ireland and also the only Gaelic one.
