Affectionately called by her people ‘la Catolica’, Queen Isabella of Spain was by any standard one of the greatest women of all history. A saint in her own right, she married Ferdinand of Aragon, and they forged modern Spain, cast out those Moslems and Jews who were causing great harm, discovered the New World by backing Columbus, and established a powerful central government in Spain. This story is so thrilling it reads like a novel. Makes history really come alive. Highly readable and truly great in every respect! We have added pictures, maps, and vocabulary entries to this great classic. If you wish to understand what a great ruler is supposed to do for those he or she rules, how that ruler should implement the perennial teachings of the Catholic Church concerning Union of Church and State, as well as how one should deal with the internal enemies of the State, this book is not to be missed.
