Joanna (Spanish: Juana de Castilla) (November 6, 1479April 12, 1555), called Joanna the Mad (Juana La Loca), was Queen regnant of Castile and mother of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. She was the second daughter of Ferdinand II of Aragon, and Isabella of Castile, and was born at Toledo.
The Castilian version of her name was Juana. In Germanic countries, she is usually known by the Latin form of her name, Joanna. Other English equivalents of the name include Jane and Joan.

In 1496 at Lier, Joanna was married to the Archduke Philip the Handsome, son of the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I, and at Ghent in February 1500, she gave birth to future emperor Charles V.
The death of her only brother John, Prince of Asturias, her eldest sister Isabella of Asturias, queen of Portugal, and then of the latter's infant son Miguel, Prince of Asturias, made Joanna the heiress of the Spanish kingdoms. Her only living siblings were Maria of Aragon and Catherine of Aragon, three and six years younger than Joanna. In 1502 the Castilian Cortes of Toro recognized Joanna as proprietary heiress to the Castilian throne, Charles as her successor, and Philip as her legitimate consort. She was then named Princess of Asturias, the title traditionally given to the heir of Castile.
Joanna was said to pine day and night for her husband while he was overseas, and when she eventually joined Philip in Flanders, her passionate jealousy and constant suspicion of him made her notorious, if not necessarily beloved, in the local court.

Philip the Handsome (July 22, 1478 – September 25, 1506; Spanish: Felipe el Hermoso; German: Philipp der Schöne; French: Philippe le Beau; Dutch: Filips de Schone) was the son of the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I.
Through his mother Mary of Burgundy he inherited the greater part of the Burgundian state the Burgundian Netherlands and through his wife Joanna the Mad he briefly succeeded to the kingdom of Castile. He was the first Habsburg ruler in Spain and his successors recognized him as Philip I of Spain.

Philip was born in Bruges, in the County of Flanders (today in Belgium) and was named after his great-grandfather, Philip the Good. In 1482, upon the death of his mother Mary of Burgundy, daughter of Charles the Bold, he succeeded to her Burgundian possessions under the guardianship of his father. A period of turmoil ensued which witnessed sporadic hostilities between, principally, the large towns of Flanders (especially Ghent and Bruges) and the supporters of Maximilian.
During this interregnum, the young Philip became caught up in events and was even briefly sequestered in Bruges as part of the larger Flemish campaign to support their claims of greater autonomy, which they had wrested from Mary of Burgundy in an agreement known as the Blijde Inkomst or Joyous Entry of 1477. By the early 1490s, the turmoil of the interregnum gave way to an uneasy stand-off, with neither French support for the cities of the Franc (Flanders), nor Imperial support from Maximilian's father Frederick III proving decisive. Both sides came to terms in the Peace of Senlis in 1493, which smoothed over the internal power struggle by agreeing to make the 15-year old Philip prince in the following year.

Juana
 
There is a very good spanish film on Juana, aged 5 or 6 years. According to this film, her sexual drive was high, but only wanted her husband, what finally annoyed him, with time and all the pregnancies. And when he died, very young, she went amok, taking with her his body in a crazy caravan through all Spain. When they finally caught her, she was confined in a castle for the rest of her life. Some women become crazy when pregnant, and this poor woman was always pregnant. Maybe this is the same case for Britney Spears.

She was quite a character from all accounts, I really like her name though....

I first became acquainted of Juana through reading about her sister Catalina de Aragon who married Henry VIII of England.

Juana and Catalina appeared close. Juana and Phllip visited England when Catalina was widowed from her first husband at which time Henry VII of England was treating Catalina rather badly.

When both sisters were Queens, they together planned for their children (Charles V and Mary I) to be married but it didn't happen. Charles married a Portuguese princess and Mary later married Charles' son.

Poor Juana, in her portraits she looks perhaps a litte "strange" but quite good looking.
Perhaps she had permanent post partum depression as she was pregnant so many times. No therapists or psychiatrists in those days. Mad, lock them up out of the way seemed to be the thing to do. She did travel round with her husband´s dead body so I suppose something had to be done.

ysbel 09-13-2008 08:29 PM

Yes, Juana was quite striking looking, wasn't she? This picture of Philip looks quite handsome but in other pictures, he looks downright ugly - Hapbsburg genes I guess.

I was interested to find out that Juana became the Spanish heiress upon the death of her sister, the Queen of Portugal.

If her sister, Isabella, had lived then Spain and Portugul would have been united into one kingdom.

It is strange that Philip is described as Duke of Bugrundy and titular King of Castile, because he was actually titular Duke of Burgundy (the Duchy of Burgundy was absorbed into the Kingdom of France in 1477) and de jure & de facto King of Castile and Leon. He was a de jure monarch of Castile as Joanna's "lord husband", just like his father-in-law was de jure monarch of Castile as "lord husband" of Isabella I.

Actually, the chance of uniting Spain and Portugal did not die with Isabella, Queen of Portugal and Princess of Asturias, but with her son Miguel, Prince of Portugal and Prince of Asturias. After his mother's death, he became the heir presumptive to the thrones of the kingdoms of the Crown of Castile and to the thrones of the kingdoms of the Crown of Aragon. However, he died aged two :(

I believe on 15 july 1506 the Cortes officially named him king (consort?), with the addition of I to his name. He could only enjoy that priviledge for a few months as he died on 25 September of the same year. In those months he was king de facto.

The Burgundy title was de jure indeed,though it symbolised the entire Burgundian Netherlands and the state they tried to make there, it had very little to do with Burgundy, which had become periferial even before 1477. King Carlos III also still used the title btw. I am not sure what happened to it afterwards, if it was inherited by the Austrian Habsburgs, by the Spanish Bourbons or if they just became extinct.

Kotroman 02-07-2009 02:06 PM

Hmm... He had a monarchical ordinal, so I don't think he was a consort, as consorts (queens consort and kings consort) do not have monarchical ordinals.

Philip certainly used the title of Duke of Burgundy, but he never reigned over the Duchy of Burgundy, right? Today, the title of Duke of Burgundy is one of the titles of the Spanish crown, but it was also used by Maria Theresa, Queen of Hungary and Bohemia (and presumably by other Sovereign Archdukes of Austria).
