QUEEN ISABELLA OF SPAIN
Transcript of QUEEN ISABELLA OF SPAIN
Isabella contributed a lot to the Renaissance by sponsoring Christopher Columbus in the exploration of America. In 1492 Isabella agreed to finance the expedition, due to this agreement Spain gained a lot of wealth. After Christopher Columbus came back in 1493 he brought all the treasures and also some Native Americans. She became the protector of the Natives and set laws up for them.
Why was she controversial?
Although Isabella was important she was also very controversial. Because she wanted to make Spain a just catholic country, she chased all the non-catholic people of of Spain. The Jews were very affected by this decision. On the 31 March 1492 the decision was made and they had time until end of July to leave. They were not allowed to take money, gold, silver etc. with them. About 40.000 of 80.000 Jews left Spain. Many Jews left to Turkey. It was said that some Jews swallowed diamonds and jewelry when they left.
