Joanna of Castile, known as Joanna the Mad, was the daughter of Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella of Castile. She was a great beauty in her youth, and one of the most educated women in Europe, fluent in several languages. At 17 Joanna married Philip the Handsome, who was crowned King of Castile in 1506, initiating the rule of the Habsburgs in Spain. After Philip's death that same year, Joanna became mentally ill and was confined to a nunnery for the rest of her life. Though she remained the legal queen of Castile throughout this time, her father, Ferdinand II of Aragon, was regent until his death, when she inherited his kingdom as well. From 1516, her son, Charles, ruled as king in her name.
