If I'm not mistaken, the situation wherein the regnal name of a King (or Queen) of Spain had been used on more occasions as a regnal name in Aragon than in Castile hasn't occurred to this date.

However, Spaniards count monarchs who reigned over Castile and Navarre in personal union as Juana I, Carlos I, etc., notwithstanding that earlier monarchs of the same names reigned over Navarre prior to its personal union with Castile. So it seems the policy is to number monarchs of Spain as monarchs of Castile, disregarding the other kingdoms.

Guidelines drawn up by the British Parliament in 1952 suggested that the monarch choose the higher ordinal between the two kingdoms, although the monarch's use of regnal name and number are her prerogative.

A future King James in the UK would be James VIII. This was determined in 1952 when the Scots objected to Elizabeth II being counted as II in Scotland when they had never had a Queen Elizabeth before. The agreement is now that the highest number will be used so James VIII in both England and Scotland and not James VIII and III. It would also be Henry IX in both countries even though Scotland has never had a King Henry.

For the Spanish monarchy, the ordinal that is always followed is that of the kings of Castile, although Navarre, recognizing the Spanish kings as their own, had its own numerals up to a time.
I suppose that Castilla prevailed over the other kingdoms such as León, Asturias, Aragon ... and since the union of Spain, the Castilian numbering is followed. Eleanor will be, Eleanor I, although there was a Eleanor I of Navarre (half-sister of Fernando II of Aragon, the "Catholic"); this queen Eleanor reigned only 15 days and could not be "crowned" in correct conditions.

I had thought that Infanta Leonor might be Queen Regnant as Leonor II because of Leonor I of Navarre.
Louis Napoleon Bonaparte became Emperor Napoleon III of the French even though Napoleon Francois was not crowned as Napoleon II.

Eleanor's father king Juan of Aragon kept tight control of Navarre following his marriage of queen Blanche I .Following the death of Queen Blanche in 1441 the crown should have passed to her eldest son Charles but his father king Juan II usurped the throne .Charles died childless in 1461 and the crown passed to his younger sister Blanche II who died imprisoned and mysteriously in 1464.
It wasn't until the death of King Juan II of Aragon on the 20th of January 1479 that Eleanor was proclaimed queen of Navarre and was crowned on the 28th of January 1479 and died on the 12th of February 1479.

Eleanor had married a French noble Gaston,Comte de Foix ,one of her daughters Marguerite married Francis II, Duke of Brittany and were the parents of Anne of Brittany,twice queen of France.

I thought Princess Leonor would be Leonor II when she became Queen, exactly because of Queen Leonor I of Navarre.
But it really makes sense to be Leonor I.

Navarre was also in a personal union with France for a period of time and some Monarchs of Navarre were also kings or Queen Consorts of France.

The dynastic union with Aragon occurred in two periods: from the year 1000 to 1035 and from the year 1076 to 1134.
Like all peninsular kingdoms, the different marriages or conquests made the territories belong to different crowns, as happened with León, Asturias, etc.
On February 18, 1513, Ferdinand the Catholic staged the solemn annexation of Navarre to the crown of Castile, swearing his Cortes and his privileges before the procurators.

He had waited for Pope Julius II to promulgate the bull of deposition of the Albret, sovereigns of the kingdom, to impose the rights of his second wife Germana de Foix. In any case, the Duke of Alba had already imposed military logic, in those days much more effective than the dynastic, reaching Pamplona.
In the sights of Fernando II of Aragon, son of Juan II "the great" and therefore stepbrother of Leonor I, was always Navarre, as well as the Italian territories.
Fernando was a typical warrior-king of the time who would not end until his great-grandson, Philip II.
Curiously, the origin of the Bourbons as the reigning dynasty starts with Queen Juana III of Navarra when she married a Bourbon and the Valois branch was considered extinct. And curiously also, the first Bourbon king of France not only had Navarrese origin but also married a great-granddaughter of Juana I "la loca", Maria de Medici (daughter of Archduchess Juana, in turn daughter of Emperor Ferdinand II, brother of Carlos I of Spain)
The Trastamara came to rule in all the peninsular kingdoms with this fact, except Portugal that would be annexed during the reign of Felipe II.
It is a pity that Juana I of Spain could not leave her surname and therefore her dynasty, the Trastamara as it would have been logical.

As I said before, although the ordinals that were always respected were those of Castile, there was a time when Spanish kings had two ordinals: one for Castile and one for Navarre, although they recognized the same king.
Of course it is much more practical to follow the order of Castile and so there are no problems.
If there are no political problems, Eleanor II will be the next queen of Spain.
It's funny to think that Leonor is a direct descendant of Eleanor of Aquitaine, one of the most interesting women of her time.

No reason for her to add a numeral (IMO it would be quite embarrassing if you call yourself "the first" but there actually isn't "the second"......)
Likewise, not all deceased monarchs who are called "the second", etc. necessarily used a numeral themselves. In Europe, the usage of ordinals by living monarchs is generally a modern invention.

I have seen it done in Spain when referring to other monarchs.
