The Victory Cross is an early 10th-century Asturian crux gemmata or jewelled cross, given by King Alfonso III of Asturias, who reigned from 866 to 910, to the Cathedral of San Salvador of Oviedo (Asturias, Spain).

It was made in 908 in the Castle of Gauzón (Raices Viejo, Castrillón, Asturias). At the core is an oakwood cross, in legend identified with a cross carried by King Pelagius of Asturias at the Battle of Covadonga, the Visigothic nobleman that sparked the flames of the Reconquest of Spain!

Here we have a humble priest wielding it in the middle of battle inspiring the warriors around him.
