    Description

    King Ferdinand II and Queen Isabella I 1492 Document Signed "Yo el Rey" (the King) and "Yo la Reyna" (the Queen), one page, 8" x 11", manuscript document dated January 14, 1492. Ferdinand and Isabella, known as the Catholic kings, ruled Castile and Aragon jointly. Their marriage in 1469 unified Christian Spain which laid the foundation for Spain's future greatness. They had five children, including Catherine of Aragon, the first wife of Henry VIII of England, and Joanna the Mad, who was the mother of Charles V, king of Spain and Holy Roman Emperor. Isabella and her husband are famous for introducing the Inquisition in 1478, the reconquest of Granada and for their expulsion of the Jews in 1492. That same year they sponsored Christopher Columbus's voyage, which led to the creation of the overseas Spanish colonial empire, bringing great wealth and power to Spain. This rare document, also from that same year, has been exquisitely matted and framed with their images to a size of 30.5" x 26".
