THE LAST QUEEN
Marin Independent Journal Bestseller
SHE IS KNOWN AS JUANA LA LOCA, SPAIN’S MAD QUEEN . . . .
Daughter of Isabel and Ferdinand of Spain, Juana bears witness to the fall of Granada and Columbus’s discoveries. At the age of sixteen, she is sent to Flanders to wed Philip, the Hapsburg archduke, just as her youngest sister, Catherine of Aragon, is sent to England to become the first wife of Henry VIII.
Juana finds unexpected passion with her handsome young husband, but when tragedy strikes and she becomes heir to the Spanish throne, she is plunged into a battle for power. Besieged by foes, her intelligence and pride used against her, Juana vows to secure her crown, even if it could cost her everything.
From the somber majesty of Spain to the glittering, lethal courts of Flanders, France, and Tudor England, The Last Queen brings to life the drama of an incomparable era and the humanity of a courageous princess whose fight to claim her birthright captivated the world.
