Yeah, Joanna the elder is a demanding woman.. Still, it's tough love more than wanton jerkishness. That may be what Giovanna needs to realize that she needs to distract herself from her grief... Thank you so much!Poor Giovanna...her mom should give her a break. Losing ones spouse is not an easy thing to go through.
Oh of course. It still seems like Giovanna and her mother have a good relationship. I look forward to seeing how Giovanna gets on in the future.Yeah, Joanna the elder is a demanding woman..

True, but I'm unsure as to if Giovanna loved her half-nephew Ferdinand as much as she does Henry.. You are definitely right in that it will influence her reaction to her second widowhood, for the poor woman is in despair as she thinks herself cursed. Thank you so much!Also do not forget who Henry was the second husband who Giovanna lost and surely her first widowhood had been much more traumatic than this one, but is likely who the previous situation will influence also her reaction to her new condition
Pretty likely who Ferdinand (who was 10 years older than her) was her dream prince while she was growing up as their wedding was planned well in advance.True, but I'm unsure as to if Giovanna loved her half-nephew Ferdinand as much as she does Henry..

Yes she certainly is, it's a role you could say she was born for... Much like her mother Catalina believes that enforcing the law is about the most important things a ruler can do, even if she is a bit less harsh than Isabella... Thank you so very much!Well, Catalina seems to be doing well in her position as regent. I commend her for her judgements on both of those cases.
Actually it's based on a game that I played, where you have to try and mediate a fair solution. Catherine's priority for Castile, other than faith, is definitely justice and good governance... Thank you very much!Ooh, I love seeing these pointless meetings with the ruler to sort a stupid dispute, in these sort of meetings. Is the farmer story based off a similar event that happened to Catherine The Great? Great update by the way, good to see Catherine trying to be a fair ruler!
In certain scenarios, it could be, but unfortunately for Germaine it is not to be here... Still, Germaine and Blanca will play prominent roles as Dowager Queen and Infanta of Aragon... Thank you so much!But wouldn't it be fun if Germaine had a living boy before Ferdinand's death?
Henry VIII only really became unstable due to his head injury and declining health during the last decade of his reign. Also there is the overeating culture which started during the reign of king Richard II of England also Richard introduce your majesty to how he should be addressed previously used to be your grace. Henry VIII was described as a natural bully intimidated people Thomas Cromwell was not affected buy Henry's behaviour in fact the king goroved to like him because he was disarming in his behaviour to king Henry. Henry was not a great King like Edward I and iii of England and king Henry's I,ii and V he was more the Playboy who lost interest quite easily. He did not have the ability to be a great reformer or conqueror like his ancestors he did not have the patience or temperament to be a great King. But with all that stated he was not a horrible King but he was the most selfish King England has ever had.Caught up with this timeline- Very interesting. Multiple times I felt very happy or sad for the characters esp our title character.
Is Arthur still buried in Worcester? His tomb is very popular and spectacular even unpainted as it is now.
A united Spain - will think big Catherine! How is the African war going?
An older, more stable Henry VIII taking the throne should have some fun consequences. Hopefully Giovanna will return to Court and keep him stable and sensible soon.
Great story. Much fun. Thanks @Awkwardvulture.
