Joana de Castela (1479-1555), queen of Castile and Aragon. Her erratic behaviour after her beloved husband's death became a welcome excuse for her father and her son Karl to deem her mentally ill so that they could be co-rulers in Castile. She was kept in confinement for nearly 40 years. Joana was one of the most educated women in Europe of that time: she was fluent in six languages and was an avid reader of classical literature.
