Historians continue to use Isabella as the name of this great queen when in fact her name in Spanish was Isabel. In English it would be Elizabeth. The first town in the New World which perished soon after, was named Isabella by Christopher Columbus and apparently this name stuck. Nonetheless, this aside , the author does a competent job of describing the great incredible accomplishments of Isabel. She was, perhaps, the most important woman in history in the last 1,000 years. 6 x 9 size. Has remainder mark on bottom pages but sale price set for this reason. With Index. Illustrated.
