A tree showing how HM The Queen is descended from Isabella of Castile
Isabella was queen-regnant of Castile and queen-consort of Aragon. Together with her husband, Ferdinand of Aragon, she presided over the development of Spain into one of the foremost powers in Europe and the New World. Their careful matrimonial policy for their children means that all the crowned heads of Europe today are their descendants.
Despite the marriage of their youngest daughter, Katharine of Aragon, to first, Arthur, Prince of Wales, and then Henry VIII, HM The Queen is not descended from Katharine, but from her sister, Juana, who followed her mother as Queen of Castile, although with much less success.
