    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)

    English: Juana La Loca in Flanders Date 15th century

  • Joanne Ellis

    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]

    Queen Isabella's strength and ruthlessness did not trickle down to her daughters! Being royal didn't make her life better!

    She was definitely disturbed, after her husband's death she would not allow him to be buried, but carried his body around, dressing and undressing it. Being betrayed by those she should be able to trust is bad, but they may have had a point about her mental health.

    She may have had some degree of mental instability and that may have been why everyone thought they could use and abuse her like they did when she only wanted to make her family proud of her and continue their good work.
