Known historically as 'Juana la loca', Juana of Castile, sister to Catherine of Aragon (first wife of Henry VIII). She became Queen regnant of Castile upon the death of her mother Isabella I. Her father & husband more than likely conspired to have her declared insane (thus unfit to rule) due to her flair for dramatic outburts. Upon the death of her husband, she went into lifetime mourning, locked in a tower by her son for the rest of her life (still being the Queen of Castile until her death). by jody
