❤ Isabella of Castile ❤
❤ Appearance and personality ❤

Isabella was short but of strong stocky build, of a very fair complexion, and had a hair color that was between strawberry-blonde and auburn. Some portraits, however, show her as a brunette.[2] Her daughters, Joanna and Catherine, were thought to resemble her the most. Isabella maintained an austere, temperate lifestyle, and her religious spirit influenced her the most in life. In spite of her hostility towards the Muslims in Andalusia, Isabella developed a taste for Moorish decor and style. Of her, contemporaries said:

Fernández de Oviedo: "To see her speak was divine."[99][100]
Andrés Bernáldez [es]: "She was an endeavored woman, very powerful, very prudent, wise, very honest, chaste, devout, discreet, truthful, clear, without deceit. Who could count the excellences of this very Catholic and happy Queen, always very worthy of praises."[101][102]
Hernando del Pulgar: "She was very inclined to justice, so much so that she was reputed to follow more the path of rigor than that of mercy, and did so to remedy the great corruption of crimes that she found in the kingdom when she succeeded to the throne."[103]
Lucio Marineo Sículo [es]: "[The royal knight Álvaro Yáñez de Lugo] was condemned to be beheaded, although he offered forty thousand ducados for the war against the Moors to the court so that these monies spare his life. This matter was discussed with the queen, and there were some who told her to pardon him, since these funds for the war were better than the death of that man, and her highness should take them. But the queen, preferring justice to cash, very prudently refused them; and although she could have confiscated all his goods, which were many, she did not take any of them to avoid any note of greed, or that it be thought that she had not wished to pardon him in order to have his goods; instead, she gave them all to the children of the aforesaid knight."[104]
Ferdinand, in his testament, declared that "she was exemplary in all acts of virtue and of fear of God."
Fray Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros, her confessor and the Grand Inquisitor, praised "her purity of heart, her big heart and the grandness of her soul".
Position on slavery[edit]
Isabella was not in favour of enslavement of the American natives and established the royal position on how American indigenous should be treated. She followed the recent policies of the Canaries, that had a small amount of native inhabitants, upon the "New World", stating that all peoples were under the subject of the Castilian Crown and could not be enslaved in most situations. By that time there were some circumstances in which a person could be enslaved, i.e. captured enemy fighters, by reducing them she moved the World a step forward that led to our modern rejection of any form of slavery.[88]

After an episode in which Columbus captured 1,200 men, Isabela ordered their return and the arrest of Columbus, who was insulted in the streets of Granada. Isabela realized that she could not trust all the conquest and evangelization to take place through one man so she opened the range for other expeditions led by Alonso de Hojeda, Juan de la Cosa, Vicente Yáñez Pinzón, Diego de Lepe or Pedro Alonso Niño.[89]

To prevent her efforts from being reversed in the future, she added this cause to her last will, making sure her descendants follow this same policy: "And do not give rise to or allow the Indians (American indigenes) to receive any wrong in their persons and property, but rather that they be treated well and fairly, and if they have received any wrong, remedy it."[90][91]

Having taken a short break from my usual crazy posts, today's was quite a clever stunt. I strongly suspect that my sister was a countess in a recent life. They both have a similar name, but by marriage only. My psychic friend Maria saw me as a Teutonic Knight before any of this started. Families reincarnate. Anyway, I suspected that because there probably wasn't a lot of Western Classical Music before Palestrina and we have to look to al Andalus for our musical origins, that my prior lives were administrative within the Empire. I have a lot of paperwork to do.

Isabella of Castile, presumably of the the Faber Castell family which we married into, in the same period, my mother's best friend in fact, and I probably have a full set of her pencils here.
