  2. Holland is not new to queens in their own right, e.g. Beatrix, Juliana, Wilhelmina, but it will be the first time for Sweden, Norway, Belgium and Spain.

    1. Sweden has been ruled by queens regnant on three separate occasions: by Margaret (1389–1412), Christina (1632–1654) and Ulrika Eleonora (1718–1720) respectively. (Wikipedia)

      As for Spain, there is a HUGE list of them!
      Urraca of León and Castile (ruled 1109–1126) - also styled as Empress of all the Spains (totius Hispaniae imperatrix). Her use of the imperial styling was limited, much more so than that of her predecessor and successor (it is possible that the imperial style had connotations too strongly masculine). Urraca did employ instead the title Queen of Spain on several occasions from the very beginning of her reign until the end
      Petronila of Aragon (ruled 1137–1164)
      Berenguela of Castile the Great (ruled 1217)
      Sancha of León (ruled de jure 1230) - she ruled jointly with her sister Dulce. After the death of Sancha's brother, Alfonso IX named his second son, Ferdinand, his heir, bestowing on him the title infante. In 1217, Ferdinand's mother, Berengaria, inherited the Kingdom of Castile, but ceded it to her son. With his heir out of the kingdom and ruling in another place, Alfonso attempted to make his eldest daughters his joint heirs. In the Treaty of Boronal concluded with Portugal in 1219, Alfonso expressly states that if he should die, Portugal should respect the agreement with his daughters.[2] Alfonso also attempted to secure his eldest daughter's rights by marrying Sancha to John of Brienne, the former King of Jerusalem, but his wife Berengaria blocked this action in order to advance her son.[3] After this fiasco, Alfonso declared Sancha and Dulce his heirs, but upon his death on 24 September 1230, the people of León, who had pledged for Ferdinand in 1206, refused to recognise his daughters, and they in turn ceded their rights to his kingdom to their half-brother
      Dulce of León (ruled de jure 1230) - she ruled jointly with her sister Sancha
      Isabella I of Castile the Catholic (ruled 1474–1504) - After a struggle to claim her right to the throne, she reorganised the governmental system, brought the crime rate to the lowest it had been in years, and unburdened the kingdom of the enormous debt her brother had left behind. Her marriage with Ferdinand II of Aragon brought stability to the kingdoms that became the basis for the political unification of Spain. Her reforms and those she made with her husband had an influence that extended well beyond the borders of their united kingdoms. Isabella and Ferdinand are known for completing the Reconquista, ordering conversion or exile of their Muslim and Jewish subjects in the Spanish Inquisition, and for supporting and financing Christopher Columbus's 1492 voyage that led to the opening of the New World.
      Joanna of Castile and Aragon the Mad (ruled 1504–1555) - successor of the previous. After her husband's death she was deemed mentally ill and was confined to a nunnery for the rest of her life. Her father, Ferdinand II of Aragon, was regent until his death, when she inherited his kingdom as well.
      Isabella II of Spain (ruled 1833–1868)

  3. It would have been nice to have a special birthday photo instead of an older one; however, she looks beautiful. Can't believe it's been 15 years.

    3. Anónimo 12'30 incompleto la frase "monta tanto.. tanto monta Isabel.. "está grabada en la entrada de la Universidad de Sevilla

      Delete
    4. Teresa, "tanto monta, monta tanto Isabel como Fernando", no está en Salamanca, sino que es algo mucho anterior cuando Castilla y Aragón se unieron por matrimonio. Por favor, deja de hscer el ridiculo, si no eres de España..¿por qué no te callas?, frase de Don Juan Carlos..

      Delete
    5. Teresa, el castellano no es tu lengua materna...no le des patadas al diccionario...deja a Barbara que sabe lo que dice..

    6. "Tanto monta" era el lema de Fernando de Aragón, tomado de Alejandro Magno. El "monta tanto"..es una leyenda sobre lo que Isabel fué la primera Reina..su marido no era más, ambos reinos se unieron, pero ella era Reina de Castilla y regente de Aragón. No está escrito en ningún lado

  7. Foto is wel al een half jaar oud. Ze ziet er mooi uit in dit kleedje en zo volwassen, net 18 jaar-dat is geen kind meer.

    1. Zij is 15 en niet 18, Gilberte. Maar zij ziet well 18 uit, moet ik well toeegeven, en dat vind ik niet so goed. Ik zie geen rede om eerlijke jeugdejaren zo weg te geven. Make-up is gedeeltelijk verantwoordelijk daarvoor. Zij draagt ook een dames kleed, met 60 zou dit kleed nog passen.

    Thanks so much, Barbara Goss, so interesting, to read about the background of a monarchy, and yes what about Monaco, and the Netherlands. Thanks again for all your effort, you put into it

  10. Bárbara Goss:Berenguela fue una muy gran REINA, Juana la loca (que de loca nada, ambición de su padre Fernando fue la mama de Carlos V de Alemania y Primero de España; Cristina de Suecia después de su abdicación vivió en roma y fue filantropa de las artes entre ellos Albinoni, y faltan muchas como La gran Blanca de Castilla; etc

    3. Berenguela no fué reina, sino regente de su hijo...

  11. Teresa, would it be do difficult for you to read the very interesting comments from Barbara, without you adding and showing that there is more? I don't think she was trying to tell us the entire and very long history of the Spanish kingdom. Also correcting the comnent of " tanto monta monta tanto", obviously you missed the very important point that Spaniards use this phrase in a colloquial way, exactly as Anonymous did, and without utilizing the entire incription . SMH!!
