The Story of Queen Isabella II of Spain . . . . ( the Naughty isabella. )
Isabella II, (born Oct. 10, 1830, Madrid—died April 9, 1904, Paris), queen of Spain (1833–68) whose troubled reign was marked by political instability and the rule of military politicians. Isabella’s failure to respond to growing demands for a more progressive regime, her questionable private life, and her political irresponsibility contributed to the decline in monarchical strength and prestige that led to her deposition in the Revolution of 1868.

The elder daughter of Ferdinand VII by his fourth wife, María Cristina, Isabella was proclaimed queen on her father’s death in 1833. Her right to succeed to the throne was disputed by supporters of her uncle, Don Carlos, and her accession precipitated civil war (First Carlist War, 1833–39). During Isabella’s minority (1833–43), her mother and Gen. Baldomero Espartero, a hero of the civil war, acted successively as regents. In 1843 Espartero was deposed by military officers and Isabella was declared of age.

The period of Isabella’s personal rule (1843–68) was characterized by political unrest and a series of uprisings. Her government was dominated by military politicians, most notably Gen. Ramón María Narváez and the somewhat more liberal Gen. Leopoldo O’Donnell. Liberal opposition to the regime’s authoritarianism became increasingly directed at the queen. Scandalous reports on the private conduct of Isabella, who lived apart from her husband, Francisco de Asís de Borbón, as well as her arbitrary political interference, further damaged the monarchical cause. The abortive uprising of 1866, and the deaths of O’Donnell (1867) and Narváez (1868), weakened her position further. In the autumn of 1868 a successful revolution drove her into exile.

Isabella settled in Paris, where in 1870 she abdicated in favour of her eldest surviving son, the future Alfonso XII (1874–85). She returned to Spain for a time after Alfonso’s accession but was unsuccessful in influencing political affairs.

Queen Isabella I & Christopher Columbus, it all began then, right here
Queen Isabella I, also known as Isabella the Catholic, is famous as the queen who financed Christopher Columbus's voyages
 to the New World. She was the queen of Castille after 1474 and of Aragon after her marriage to Ferdinand of Aragon in 1479.
The union of their two kingdoms permanently united Spain and brought about a global empire after the successful voyages to the
New World. Isabella also presided over the notorious Inquisition, led by her confessor Tomas de Torquemada.

Isabella's half-brother, Henry IV, became king of Castile when their father, John II, died in 1454.
Isabella was only three years old, and her younger brother Alfonso was the expected heir.
Isabella was raised by her mother, Isabella of Portugal, until 1457.

The opposition's attempt to replace Henry with Alfonso met with defeat, the final defeat coming in July, 1468 when Alfonso died of poison. Isabella was offered the crown by the nobles, but she refused, and Henry was willing to compromise with the nobles and
accept Isabella as his heiress in September.

At Henry's death in 1474, a war of succession ensued, with Alfonso V of Portugal, prospective husband of Isabella's rival Juana, supporting Juana's claims. The war was settled in 1479, with Isabella recognized as Queen of Castile.

Also in 1492, Isabella was convinced by Christopher Columbus to sponsor his voyage of discovery
The lasting effects of this were many: by the traditions of the time, when Columbus discovered lands in the New World, 
they were given to Castile. Isabella took a special interest in the Native Americans of the new lands; when some were 
brought back to Spain as slaves she insisted they be returned and freed, and expressed her wish that the
"Indians" be treated with justice and fairness.
