Juana I of Castile, better known as Juana 'la loca', could never reign. First her husband, Archduke Felipe of Austria, after her, hers, her father Ferdinand 'the Catholic' and later hers, her son Carlos I of her, they were in charge of keeping her away from power. But her figure, together with that of her mother Isabel 'the Catholic', are decisive in understanding the transit that occurs in the Iberian Peninsula between the Middle Ages and the modern era. The program is completed with a brief dramatization and a plot of the places where she developed her life, in the Netherlands and in Spain.

It is a shame that the position and actions of women in Spanish royal history are so widely erased by Anglophone royal watchers.

She was so jaloes that she followed her Husband abroad. So Charles Quint (Charles V) is born in Ghent.

I think that had more to with the fact that her husband had inherited the Duchy of Burgundf territories from his mother.

By now it is quite clear, that Juana was most probale in a deep depression after her husbands death - and her father used that to incarcerate her in quite bad circumstances - it was clearly that he could reign in her stead ... the son was just like the grandfather. As he grew up without much contact to her, he just presumed that he, as a man, had any right to treat her as bad, as her father had done. Could be that by now she really got 'mad' at beeing treated so badly by her closesed of kin.

It's a sad story. It was probably depression brought on by grief. Obviously there wasn't much understanding of mental illness then, but, with some kindness rather than being locked away, maybe she'd have recovered. Neither Ferdinand nor Charles seemed to care about her.

And the queen lived such a long life for those days and lived into her 75th year.

Queen Juana's life was far from easy, apparently she suffered a lot. She did have a very long life for that time.
