Henry of Trastámara's siblings
What are all the other descendants of the siblings of Henry of Trastámara called? Were they also Trastámaras?
The image shown is not the armorial of the House of Trastamara but of the Kingdoms of Castile and Leon (while the Trastamaras also ruled in Portugal and Aragon). I think it should be removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Superflicka (talk • contribs) 19:28, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
1637 instead of 1555
Should this mentions the fact that the last descendant of the royal house was Dona Ana de Aragón y Folch de Cardona, the great-granddaughter of Infante Henry, Duke of Villena, who didn't die until 1637?--The Emperor's New Spy (talk) 02:27, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
origins in Galicia and not in Castile.
hello -- the House of Trastamara was originated in the region of Galicia and not in Castile, as we can read in most of the books. - in ancient times, the river Tambre was called TAMARA, and the lands beyond the river were called Trastamara (= Tras-Tamara, beyond the Tamara). The river and the lands are located in the heart of GALICIA, far from Castile, and very near the city of Santiago de Compostela. In this place is located the ancient county of Trastamara, and the counts of Trastamara came from this county; and with time they became the kings of Trastamara. But the origin of all that is in the kingdom of Galicia, and not in the kingdom of Castile. You can see more info in the Wikipedia in Spanish. - thanx -22.214.171.124 (talk) 17:00, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
-- correction: Henry II was more Leonese than Galician. Although the county of Trastamara is in Galicia, it was just inherited: the previous count of Trastamara was not his father. Henry s blood from his family was more Leonese than Galician. -126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:00, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
more about Henry II of Trastamara
The king Alfonso XI had his illegitimate son Henry with Leonor de Guzmán, who was an important Andalusian noblewoman from Leonese family. He was born in Seville in 1333 or 1334 and brought up and educated by Rodrigu Alvarez, one of the most powerful counts of Asturias. When Rodrigu passed away, Henry inherited his lands, in which the Galician county of Trastamara was the most important of all. He was around 20 years old when rebelled in Asturias against the true king (or emperor), his half-brother Pedro I, of Leon, Castile and the other kingdoms. Politically, he was more Leonese (or Galician-Leonese) STILL than his father. - for more information, see the book "Galicia Feudal" by Victoria Armesto. -188.8.131.52 (talk) 17:01, 7 December 2015 (UTC)
