Description

Queen Maria of Castile was the wife of Alfonso V, ” The Magnanimous,” King of Aragon who governed Catalunya in the mid-1550s while her husband conquered and governed the kingdom of Naples. For 26 years she maintained a royal court and council separate from Alfonso’s. She had no children and was more than a wife as she embodied the king’s personal authority. This was rare for a medieval queen. It is also a study of the monarchy at the time. Contains two maps and a genealogical chart of the House of Trastamara in Aragon.
