Isabel is a Spanish produced historical fiction television series filmed in Spain, directed by Jordi Frades and produced for national broadcaster Televisión Española. The series is based upon the reign of Queen Isabella I of Castile.[1]

Production[edit]

The series has been produced by Diagonal TV for TVE. Filming began in Summer 2011 and took place in several Spanish cities: Cáceres, Madrid and Segovia. The first season premiered on 10 September 2012, after an eight-month delay. The series was initially expected to debut on 30 January 2012, but a budget cut for TVE postponed the premiere.[2]

In November 2012, the show was renewed for a second season. Filming of the second season began in February 2013.[3] Part of the shooting took place on location at the Alhambra in Granada.[4] TVE approved the third season in July 2013 before the second season premiered.[5]

Synopsis[edit]

This series is a biography about the Queen of Castile, Isabella the Catholic. The first season chronicles the period between 1461 and 1474: from the end of her childhood to her marriage with Ferdinand II of Aragon and her difficult arrival to the Crown.[6] The second season chronicles the period between 1474 and 1492: from her crowning to the conquest of Granada and the beginning of the journey of Christopher Columbus.[3]

The third series covers the marriages of Joanna and Philip and Juan and Margaret, the subsequent deaths of Juan, Isabel (Queen of Portugal) and after Juan´s death, Princess of Asturias, and Isabel's son, Miguel along with the marriages of Catherine of Aragon and Maria of Aragon.
