December 5, 1499". 3) Engraving of Christopher Columbus. King Ferdinand V (1452-1516) was born on March 10, 1452 in Sos del Rey Catolico (then called only "Sos"), in Aragon, to John II of Aragon and his second wife Juana Enriquez. Ferdinand was in his own right the King of Sicily from 1468 and King of Aragon from 1479. He married Infanta Isabella, the half-sister and heiress of Henry IV of Castile on October 19, 1469 in Valladolid. Isabella and Fernando belonged to the royal House of Trastamara and the two were cousins by descent from John I of Castile. They were married with a very clear prenuptial agreement on sharing power and under the joint motto "tanto monta, monta tanto". Therefore, as a consequence of his marriage to Isabella I, he was King of Castile jure uxoris as Ferdinand V from 1474 until the queen's death in 1504. He was recognized as regent of Castile for his daughter and heir, Joanna, from 1508 until his own death. After a war with France he became King of Naples as Ferdinand III, reuniting Naples with Sicily eternally and for the first time since 1458. Also, in 1512 he became King of Navarre by conquest after asserting a hereditary claim. Ferdinand is very well known for his role in inaugurating the discovery of the New World, since he and Isabella sponsored the first voyage of Christopher Columbus in 1492. On that same year, he also fought the final war with Granada, which expunged the last Islamic state on Spanish soil, thus bringing to a close the centuries of long reconquering. King Ferdinand V wanted so much to have an heir with Queen Isabella, and even though they had 6 children their only son, who survived to adulthood, died at age 19. After Queen's own death in 1504, her kingdom went to their daughter Joanna, King Ferdinand served as the latter's regent during her absence in the Netherlands, ruled by her husband Archduke Philip. The king then attempted to retain the regency permanently, but was rebuffed by the Castilian nobility and replaced with Joanna's husband, who became Philip I of Castile. King Ferdinand V did not agree with his policies and foreignness, and hoping to have an heir, he remarried to Germaine of Foix in 1505, who was the granddaughter of his half-sister Queen Eleanor of Navarre and niece of Louis XII of France, however, his wish to father an heir of Aragon never occurred. After Philip's death in 1506, with Joanna apparently mentally ill and her and Philip's son, the future Emperor Charles V, only six years old, Ferdinand resumed the regency ruling through Francisco Jimenez de Cisneros, the Chancellor of the Kingdom. Charles I (later Holy Roman Emperor Charles V) became King of Aragon in 1516, with his mother Joanna known as "The Mad" Queen in name upon King Ferdinand V passing on January 23, 1516 in Madrigalejo, Extremadura. He is entombed at the Royal Chapel of Granada in Andalucia. Queen Isabella I of Castile (1451-1504) was born on April 22, 1451 in Madrigal de las Altas Torres, Avila, to John II of Castile and Isabella of Portugal. She was Queen of Castile and was married to Ferdinand of Aragon. Their marriage was the basis for the political unification of Spain under their grandson, Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. After a struggle to claim her right to the throne, the Queen reorganized the government system, brought the crime rate to the lowest it had been in years and unburdened the kingdom of the giant debt her brother had left behind. Both, her reforms and the ones she made with her husband King Ferdinand V are well known for completing the reconquering, ordering conversion to Catholicism or exile of their Muslim and Jewish subjects in the Spanish Inquisition, and also for having been the only one who believed and supported financially Christopher Columbus in his 1492 voyage that led to the opening of the New World, and to the establishment of Spain as the first global power who dominated Europe and much of the world for more than a hundred years. Queen Isabella was a fervent catholic devout during her entire life and has being one of the main supporters and defenders of Catholicism in the history of the church and that is why Pope Alexander VI named Ferdinand and Isabella "The Catholic Monarchs", and that is why she is also known as "Isabel The Catholic". King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella solicited and forced Pope Sixtus IV to authorize the Inquisition, and in 1483 Tomas de Torquemada became the first Inquisitor General in Seville. Queen Isabella I of Castile officially withdrew from governmental affairs on September 14, 1504 and she died that same year on November 26 in Medina del Campo, but it is believed that she had truly been in decline since her son Prince John died in 1497. Queen Isabella is entombed in Granada in the Royal Chapel, which was built by her grandson, Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor (Carlos I of Spain), alongside her husband Ferdinand, her daughter Joanna and Joanna's husband Philip, and Isabella's 2 years old grandson Miguel. The museum next to the Royal Chapel exhibits the crown and scepter of the most important queen of all times. In 1974 the Catholic Church granted her the title of "Servant of God" and a process of sanctification has been started. Gaspar de Trizio was Queen Isabella I of Castile's secretary. Three items. Lightly toned. Edges frayed. Normal mailing folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
