About Katharina von Habsburg, rainha consorte de Portugal

Catarina de Áustria (ou Catarina de Habsburgo ou, mais raramente, Catarina de Espanha) - (14 de Janeiro de 1507 - 12 de Fevereiro de 1578) foi arquiduquesa da Áustria, princesa de Espanha e rainha de Portugal (da casa dos Habsburgos). Era filha de Joana, a Louca, rainha de Espanha, e de Filipe, o Belo, arquiduque da Áustria e Duque da Borgonha.

Teve cinco irmãos, entre os quais os imperadores romano-germânicos Carlos V da Alemanha e Fernando I de Habsburgo; Isabel, esposa de Cristiano II da Dinamarca; Maria, esposa do rei Luís II da Hungria e da Boémia; e ainda Leonor de Áustria, sua predecessora enquanto rainha de Portugal (foi casada com D. Manuel I embora prometida a D. João III) e ainda rainha de França. Teve como tia materna Catarina de Aragão, rainha consorte da Inglaterra, mãe da Rainha Maria I.

Depois da morte do pai, em 1506, sua mãe foi encarcerada em Tordesilhas como louca e Catarina acompanhou-a, acabando por ser libertada graças à intervenção de seu irmão Carlos V.

Em 5 de Fevereiro de 1525, casou-se com o rei João III de Portugal, tornando-se rainha consorte até à morte do esposo em 1557. Foi mãe da infanta Maria Manuela e do Príncipe João e avó do rei D. Sebastião. Durante a menoridade do neto, exerceu a regência do reino entre 1557 e 1562.

Catherine of Habsburg (1507-1578)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Catherine of Habsburg, also called Catherine of Austria, Catherine of Burgundy or Catherine of Castile (14 January 1507– 12 February 1578) was Queen consort of Portugal.

An Infanta of Castile, Archduchess of Austria, and princess of Burgundy, she was the posthumous daughter of Philip of Habsburg by Joanna of Castile. She was named in honor of her maternal aunt, Catherine of Aragon, first wife of Henry VIII, King of England. She remained with her disturbed mother until the arrival in Spain of her eldest siblings (Eleanor and Charles) brought about the creation of her own household within the castle their mother was virtually imprisoned in.

She was a younger sister of Eleanor of Habsburg, Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, Isabella of Habsburg, Ferdinand I, Holy Roman Emperor and Mary of Habsburg.

After the death of her husband, she was challenged by her daughter-in-law (her niece, Juana) over the role of regent for the infant King Sebastian. Mediation by Charles V resolved the issue in favour of his sister Catherine, over his daughter Juana, who was needed in Spain in the absence of Phillip II.
