Untitled[edit]

I wonder... how was she styled in Castile? I mean, she was the legitimate wife of the legitamate King of Castile, but her husband reigned together with his mother Joanna and Joanna was the Queen. If Joanna was the Queen, what was Isabella? I suppose that two women could not be styled "Her Majesty The Queen" at the same time. Surtsicna (talk) 17:12, 19 June 2008 (UTC)


Charles V was not only the King of Spain (jointly with his mother Juana, until her death) he was also the Holy Roman Emperor. He was crowned Emperor prior to his marriage to Isabel of Portugal. While his mother Juana was technically Queen of Spain, his wife Isabel would have been queen and also his Empress. Charles V's reign introduced the first documented use of the styles of "His Majesty" or "His Imperial Majesty". Because of his far-reaching territories he was described as ruling an Empire "in which the sun does not set".

I don't specfically know how she was styled, but logically (and with consideration given to the way historians/authors have referred to her as the Empress) one would speculate that was how she was referred to at that time - "Her Majesty, the Empress" or perhaps "Her Imperial Majesty, the Empress" - following the same ceremonial styling as her husband.

Holy Roman Empire[edit]

Was there anything "holy" about the "Holy Roman Empire"? Did Isabella sign the death warrants for the Incas by Pizzaro? In my opinion, something should be mention about Pope John Paul II asking forgiveness for the crimes committed under the Catholic Church. I do have sympathy for Isabella who died while giving birth to a child. Cmguy777 (talk) 04:03, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
