Juana la Loca Joan the mad by Vicente Aranda ( Visual )
31 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Joan of Castile (1479-1555, daughter of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella) has gone down in history as "Joan the Mad." Sent alone to Brussels, sheltered eighteen-year-old Joan is a willing pawn in her political marriage to a young Hapsburg, Philip Archduke of Austria, known as "the Handsome," consolidating Spain as regional power. Amazingly, Joan falls head-over-heels in love with Philip, who reciprocates initially, but then becomes noticeably indifferent. Barely troubling to conceal his affairs, she suffers sobbing, despairing, jealous rages, becoming more miserable and fixated. Was Joan mad, or did she love Philip with such uncanny relentlessness that he was, in the end, helpless in the face of her passion?
