Castile For Isabella
by : Jean Plaidy

Castile for Isabella covers the early life of the most significant of all Spanish monarchs: Isabella of Castile.

Isabella is seen as a young girl, within a few steps of the throne; first in the care of an ambitious but unbalanced mother; later in the licentious court of her half-brother Henry IV; and at length ascending the throne, Ferdinand beside her.

Meanwhile Henry IV, weak and in the hands of favourites, had married a frivolous and immoral Princess whose illicit love affair brought scandal and confusion to Castile with the birth of a child whose legitimacy was in doubt.

These were momentous years in Spanish history, for here was a country in the grip of anarchy, with a royal house divided against itself. But Isabella, firm, serene and courageous, was dedicated to an idea; to bring law and order to an all-Christian Castile and to marry Ferdinand of Aragon.
