9780955598005: That Other Juana (Juana la Loca)

Queen Juana of Spain was the daughter of Ferdinand and Isabel, and sister of Catherine of Aragón. She was instrumental in creating the powerful Hapsburg houses of Spain and Austria which would endure for centuries. Throughout her life Juana was callously denied power and status by three men: her husband Philip, her father Ferdinand, and her son Charles. She faced their relentless physical and mental cruelty with courage and determination, her spirited resistance earning her, unjustly, the nickname by which she is remembered; Juana la Loca, Joan the Mad.

About the Author:

Linda was born in a small mining village at the southern edge of the Durham coalfield in the Northeast of England. She had a lifelong passion for history and historical fiction and a five week independent tour of Spain in 1988 was a life-changing event. She became interested in Spain’s history and then began writing historical fiction. During 2007-08 VeritasPublishing published her Spanish Hapsburg Trilogy: That Other Juana. (Juana la Loca). A Matter of Pride (Charles V, HRE) and Wives & Other Women (Philip II of Spain). In 2009 That Other Juana (Joana, a Louca) was published in Portugal by Editorial Presença and in January 2012 it published A Matter of Pride (Uma Questão de Orgulho). In February 2012 Joana, a Louca.was published in Brazil by Editora Europa and in October of 2013 they published A Matter of Pride.

Review:

Dear Linda, I have just finished reading your book That Other Juana and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. I found it very refreshing to read an account of her life from Juana's point of view as I have always felt that she has been much maligned in the history books and was shut away probably because of her intellectual challenge to male authority rather than madness. Thank you very much, I shall certainly look out for any further books by you. --G. Grason

Dear Linda, I sincerely believe this is an excellent work; a wonderful historical novel and historically accurate. Juana la Loca is a fascinating character and That Other Juana portrays her brilliantly: her life, her feelings, her people. The scene with the meeting of Juana, Charles, Leonor and Catalina is fantastic: I lived the scene as if I was there. You can be proud of your achievement. I can't wait for your next book about Juana's son, Charles V. --J. Sanmarti --J. Sanmarti

As far as I am qualified to judge, That Other Juana, the sad story of Juana la Loca, has been impeccably researched for this novel, without that research weighing down the depiction of the characters or their reasons for behaving as they do. Juana herself comes over as a passionate, intelligent woman: headstrong and occasionally unable to foresee the consequences of her actions, but in no way the insane virago of tradition. Instead, Linda Carlino presents us with a sympathetic and plausible account of a great injustice, for Juana La Loca was betrayed in turn by her parents, her husband and her son. In this portrait of a shamefully neglected historical figure, That Other Juana is in the mould of Anya Seton s Katherine , and from me, there can be no higher praise. Catherine Bott (Presenter, the Early Music Show, BBC Radio 3) --Catherine Bott (Presenter, the Early Music Show, BBC Radio 3)

Queen Juana I of Spain (Juana la Loca), the daughter of Ferdinand and Isabella has always had a bad press, so it is refreshing to read a work that shows that the sister of Catherine of Aragon was far from a lunatic nonentity. A woman who was instrumental in creating the powerful Hapsburg houses of Spain and Austria, she defied family cruelty and betrayal to stay true to her own beliefs and principles. This is an historical novel which looks beyond the glamour of courts and crowns to the harsh realities of royal life - especially if you were a princess with a mind of your own. --J. McTaggart

Book Description VeritasPublishing. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 329 pages. Brief SynopsisThat Other JuanaQueen Juana I of Spain(Juana La Loca)A story of obsessive love, uncontrolled passion and cruel, cynical betrayalThat Other Juana is the story of Queen Juana I of Spain (14791555), daughter of Ferdinand and Isabel, sister of Catherine of Aragn, mother of Charles V (Holy Roman Emperor) and grandmother of Philip II. Juana, a remarkable woman of her times, was highly intelligent and talented, had her own strongly held views and opinions, was daring and valiant, was always faithful to her high moral and ethical principles, but at times, was a victim of her strong emotions. A founder of the powerful Hapsburg dynasties of Spain and Austria, she never knew or enjoyed their fortunes. Instead, throughout her long life, she suffered at the hands of three men driven by their insatiable thirst for power. Her husband, Philip the Fair, the handsome Archduke of Austria, with whom she fell hopelessly and passionately in love at first sight, is her first tormentor. From the start he schemes to get all power and influence for himself. He denies her her rightful status and her own money, and subjects her to physical and mental abuse; he also repays her absolute devotion and worship of him by his open philandering. Eventually she is provoked into attacking one of his mistresses, hacking at her hair and face with scissors. Philip beats her and has her imprisoned. When she inherits the crown of Castile he grants her partial freedom while his treachery in pursuit of power plumbs greater depths. Philip dies suddenly. Juana, at twenty-six and heavily pregnant, is devastated. She invites her father, King Ferdinand, to be joint ruler but he has other plans. By callous and meticulous scheming he paves the way to securing sole power. He publicly accuses her of morbid and excessive mourning then, when she is at her lowest ebb, tricks her into appearing before the assembled nobles. In her unkempt and dishevelled state she is deemed totally incapable of ruling and he gains the right to reign alone. To ensure there is no challenge to his power he has her forcibly taken to a small isolated town and put under house arrest. When her father dies Juana becomes heir to Aragn as well as Castile and it falls to her son, Charles, to be the supportive and joint ruler. Instead he becomes the final and most savage of her male tormentors. His regime of imprisonment and torture designed to break her include the abduction of her cherished young daughter, the replacing of her stolen jewels with pebbles, and the flagrant deceit that her father is still living and is responsible for her detention. When, some time later, her daughter does leave to marry the King of Portugal Juana is left to face a further three decades of suffering alone. With astonishing fortitude and indomitable spirit she endured the imprisonment and relentless physical and mental cruelty meted out by her husband, father, and son. Few knew of her plight, and those who did either could not or would not try to change it. Her spirited resistance to a lifetime of barbaric persecution earned her, unfairly, the infamous nickname Juana la Loca, Joan the Mad. This book speaks for her; it is her story.
