Queen Isabel I of Castile : Power, Patronage, Persona


Inspired by the quincentenary of the death of Queen Isabel I of Castile, early modern Europe's first powerful queen regnant. This title examines the complex ways in which the Queen and her advisers shaped the music, literature, architecture, and painting of fifteenth-century Spain and how these in turn shaped the sovereign's power and persona.
