Joanna was born in Toledo in 1476. Daughter of the Catholic Kings, she was queen of Castile, Aragon and Navarre. When she was little, she learned Latin, music, protocol and religion, although she was not a believer. She was also an excellent rider and she loved riding a horse. She spent her last years locked up in a convent because it was said that she was crazy. She died in Tordesillas in 1555.
