Summary
1474. Castile was the largest, strongest, and most populous kingdom in Hispania-- and Isabella ascended the throne, a female ruler in a male-dominated world. Her marriage to Ferdinand of Aragon not only united their kingdoms, but began a royal partnership in which Isabella more than held her own. Tremlett chronicles Isabella's colorful life as she led her country out of the Middle Ages and harvested the ideas and tools of the Renaissance to turn her nation into a sharper, early modern state
Summary
Describes the challenges faced in 1474 when 23-year-old Isabella ascended the throne in Hispania at a time when men dominated the world and ultimately led her nation into a powerful and modern state that left the middle ages behind
