Juana la Loca. This portrait: done in Flanders, ca 1500: it is a detail from the wings of the Last Judgement Triptych of Zierikzee, by the Master of Afflighem (Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium). Joanna of Castile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Queen Joanna of Castile, sister to Catherine of Aragon, first wife of Henry VIII. Also known as Mad Joanna. Painted c. 1500; a detail from the Last Judgement Triptych of Zierikzee, by the Master of Afflighem (Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium)
She is still known in history as Joanna the Mad (a.k.a, Joanna la Loca), but if you ask me, the history books have it wrong - Juana was not mad but was definitely betrayed by all the men in her life - her husband, her father, and then her own son. A tragic tale but she fascinates me.Part of a trio by Master of Affligem [ Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium]
