Henry II (January 13, 1334 Sevilla - May 29, 1379 Santo Domingo de la Calzada), better known as Henry of Trastámara (Enrique de Trastámara), 1st Conde de Trastamara, before his coronation, was the illegitimate son of Alfonso XI of Castile and Eleanor of Guzmán, half brother to Peter of Castile. He took the throne after defeating and killing Peter in the Castilian Civil War (1366–1369).
As head of a band of mercenaries, and with the aid of Bertrand du Guesclin, he drove Pedro from his throne in 1366. He was, however, defeated the next year at the Battle of Nájera (Navarette), and Pedro was restored. Henry defeated Pedro at the Battle of Montiel and then murdered him in 1369. Henry then went to war against Portugal and England in the Hundred Years' War. For most of his reign he had to fight off the attempts of John of Gaunt, a son of Edward III of England, to claim the Castilian throne in right of his second wife, Pedro's daughter.

Juana Manuel of Castile (1339 — 27 March 1381) was from 1369 the Queen consort of Castile. She also was the heiress of Escalon, Villena, Penafiel and Lara as well as the sovereign lady ("senora soberana") of Biscay (the Basque country).
She was the daughter of the Infante Juan Manuel of Castile (1282-1349) and his second wife Blanca Núñez de Lara de La Cerda. Her mother Blanca (d 1347) was a descendant of sovereign Lords of Vizcaya (the Basque country) and of the Lara and of Alfonso X's eldest son (Fernando de La Cerda).
Her elder half-sister Constance of Penafiel (who died in 1345 when Juana was just about 5 years old) was queen consort of Portugal.
On 27 July 1350 she married don Enrique (1333-79), eldest of the illegitimate sons of Alfonso XI of Castile, who in 1369 became King Henry II of Castile, after he deposed his half-brother to take the throne.
