and to significant extent As a result I have than a passing exposure to the histories Death by Inferior Design ofther European countries though my knowledge f Spanish history is rather limited and primarily involves England and France and Napoleon So recently n a trip to Barnes and Noble in an effort to supplement my TBR shelf I ran across this book near the bottom shelf and there was nothing above it that struck my interest My knowledge Hitler's Northern War: The Luftwaffe's Ill-Fated Campaign, 1940-1945 of ueen Isabella is limited to her relationship with the Columbus and his voyagef Discovery So finding nothing else f interest I bought the book in hopes f filling a knowledge voidOne thing about English history that is very annoying is the fact that the nobility in that country seemed to have a lack f imagination when it came to naming their sons In most f English history the male participants use A Philosophy of Cinematic Art only about a half dozen first names These men are primarily Edwards Henrys Williams Richards Johns Haroldr Arthur and that s about it Conseuently they seem never to refer to themselves by their names but by their titles and that is the The Potato Hack: Weight Loss Simplified only way to keep trackf who is who Now let s start White House Years (Henry Kissingers Memoirs our introduction to Spanish history and what do I find but that the Spanish have theirwn little naming tradition to make their history incomprehensible In Spain at the time f Isabella Spanish nobility preferred to name their children after their parents Of course the parents had been named after their parents and so n Isabella s mother was named Isabella And So Was Her and so was her When Isabella had a daughter what else was she going to be named but Isabella There were also some Juans Juanas Joaos etc just to keep the reader n hisher toes Maddening but not impossible to follow if you read slow and CAREFULLY SO MY LIMITED GRIPE IS OUT OF THE So my limited gripe is ut In a World Created by a Drunken God of the so how was the book uite good actuallyTo begin with I picked up an interesting bitf trivia from reading this history concerning the game Indo No Kao of chess Chess was certainly in existence long before Isabella However around 1495 the rules were rewritten and a new versionf the game called ueen s CHESS CAME INTO BEING THIS IS came into being This is game we are all familiar with in which the ueen is dominant piece n the board and whose duty is to protect the king This new version f chess is attributed to the reign Giant Peach Yodel of Isabella and after reading this book I don t know why Isabella wasted her timen Ferdinand let alone protected him After Isabella died the king displayed his true colors much to the displeasure Sinai and Zion of the Spanish nobility and people Aside from learning this little gem about chess there is a great deal to be learned from this biography about Isabella Ferdinand the Inuisition the discoveryf the New World and the conseuences f the discovery f course Columbus is featured as is Pope Alexander VI and Isabella and Spain s influence n the world at that time and in the present is uite remarkable and to think she accomplished what she did in a time when women were generally regarded as little better than children r incompetents is astonishing Isabella would certainly seem to be the precursor to Elizabeth I Catherine the Great and Victoria and deservedly so This was definitely a biography worth reading People generally seem to either love r hate this book but my take isn t firmly in either camp I think that their pinion Iniquity of the book is wrapped up in theirpinion f Isabella herself Was she evil incarnate r sincerely pious and devout I m still not sure which is most descriptive but her life was definitely fascinating I became interested in ueen Isabella after reading The Constant Princess Philippa Gregory showed Isabella as an intense formidable woman through the eyes f her daughter Katherine f Aragon As it turns Annual Report of the Officers of the Town of Holderness, N. H: Year Ending January 31, 1937 (Classic Reprint) out she was all that and ueen Isabella was a warrior an astute politico an intellectual an aesthete a devoted mother and a zealous Catholic She was such a complex person that hundredsf years later it is impossible to really know her But Downey has a point Gardening with Shape, Line and Texture: A Plant Design Sourcebook of view and it comes through Downey respects Isabella and dislikes Ferdinand She basically says that Isabella was responsible for everything good that happened and Ferdinand was largely responsible for everything bad and Downey makes excuses for Isabella s role in the atrocitiesf the Inuisition I don t really hold this against Downey too much I believe that writing a biography is ften a labor f love Authors come to have affection for the people they writ.

IsabellaE about and it clouds their judgement Downey certainly tries to shield Isabella from much f the responsibility f her crimes against humanityAnother criticism I have is that the book lacked focus It was too long with too many details about the indiscretions and personal lives f various Popes Downey probably included it for the salaciousness but it just added too much irrelevant minutia to the plot f Isabella s life Overall I think that Downey did a good job Showa, 1939-1944: A History of Japan of compiling muchf what is known about ueen Isabella in The Book Of The Superiority Of Dogs Over Many Of Those Who Wear Clothes one place From the extensive footnotes I don t think that she did a lotf research f primary documents but for my tastes she wrote a very interesting biography Since I knew ueen Isabella was the financier f Columbus a force behind the Spanish Inuisition and the mother Rescuing a Werewolf of Katherinef Aragon first wife Making Women Pay of Henry VIII I thought I would find this book about her interesting but that was an underestimation because Isabella The Warrior ueen turnedut to be a treasure trove GloomCookie of fascinating information and stories About Columbus the book has detail than I expected also covering early European interactions with various groupsf Native Americans About the Inuisition the book gives religious context and history that were unfamiliar to me and after reading about Catherine f Aragon s early life I have a greater understanding f and appreciation for her as a woman The Jesuit of strength and principle Also woven into the narrative is information about the lives and historical impactsf Isabella s With Bound Hands other children the balancef power in Isabella s relationship with her husband Ferdinand according to this account she was the Rim of the Pit one who was eual and fairly extensive background historiesf European royal families and their politics Islam s presence You Can Beat the Odds on the Iberian Peninsula the evolving rolef the papacy and the nature and progress f the Ottoman Empire Isabella was a much stronger monarch than I realized but she s humanized here and I ended up liking her which wasn t something I expected Author Kirstin Downey has taken bvious care to be fair and respectful to all parties in Isabella s story and without doing a lot Stripes of All Types of undocumented speculation about her subjects inner feelings her book is written in a vivid engaging style that had me hooked from itspening chapter I kept finding myself rushing back to its pages the way you do when reading a gripping novel I received an advanced review copy f this book Review pinions are mine view spoiler Bettie s Books hide spoiler My acuaintance with Spanish history is incidental mostly from Spain being mentioned in biographies and histories f ther counties Baltimore Catechism No. 2 or Europe in general Author Kirsten Downey helped me to put all the fragments for this short period that I ve gleaned together Now I understand Catherinef Aragon s long wait for her second marriage how Jauna came to be considered mad the actual relationship Mic manual de campanie electorală of the Spanish monarchs to their Borgia pope and much You see the Inuisition and expulsion from the sidef the monarchs and how Ferdinand was most likely the active partner with Isabella just not stepping inThe book was best for me in the beginning where it is a chronological biography In this part you come to understand Isahella s family and how she engineered her The Big Book of Maker Skills: Tools Techniques for Building Great Tech Projects own marriage and coronation You come to understand that marriage her piety and relations with the church and her reliancen childhood friends You see the how the 700 year Reconuest was completedAt time when Columbus enters the picture the structure f the narrative changes and Columbus the Inuisition the later expulsion the European wars and the marriage f daughters are presented in separate chapters In these parts with the exception f the marriage and family parts the narratives bog down in detailAnother WEAKNESS THAT THERE IS A LOT that there is a lot conversos Those close to Isabella are noted and there are examples f the fate Just Joking of many conversos and Jews in the Inuisition and expulsion There is little attention to the Muslims and their fate in the Inuisition and expulsion Moriscos are not mentioned at any point in the book For a good descriptionf this Blood and Faith The Purging f Muslim SpainThe chapters about after Isabella both for the years immediately following her death and her influence to ur present time is excellent For the immediately after part you learn Times of Trouble (A Time Travel Anthology) of the power strugglef Ferdinand and his too soon after brereavement marriage and his son in law and the fate BENAAMI of the some players who played a role in Isabella s life such as the Bobadilla s Columbus and his sons Cesar Borgia and many This book is clearly a laborf love In the end the author tells how she came to be interested in Spanish history and Isabella in particular Truly enjoyable and highly educating at the very least I suspect it to be a little bit biased by modern gender studies as this book is certainly a part f a very popular trend to empower women from the past Personally I think it is much needed to verturn the concept f world ruled solely by men and restore full meaning f their female companions merits it needs however careful treading so the balance doesn t tip The Real Bluebeard: The Life of Gilles de Rais over I cannot tell for sure how much this accountf Isabella s life differs from thers though as this is my firstserious encounter with this this account f Isabella s life differs from thers though as this is my firstserious encounter with this womanI loved the way the story is being told the fact that we hear from so many first hand sources the discussion around controversial issues that the author tries to present and defend her point f viewThere have been some accusations that the book is also biased in matters Night Train To
