Richly illustrated and narrated with touches of irreverent humor, The Thinking Girl's Treasury of Real Princesses tells the tales of real princesses who did what few thought possible. This book, Isabella of Castile, brings to life the story of a real and remarkable princess who refused to wait to be rescued by a prince but instead chose one for herself. With him she built an equal partnership that was as successful as it was revolutionary — one that would change the course of history and give rise to what we now know as the Americas and Spain.
