About Juana Enríquez, Reina consorte de Navarra y Aragón


Juana Enríquez y Fernández de Córdoba (Torrelobatón, 1425 – Tarragona, 13 de febrero de 1468), Reina de Navarra (1447 - 1468) y de Aragón (1458 - 1468). V Señora de Casarrubios del Monte. Perteneció al importante linaje de los Enríquez.

King John's second wife.

Juana Enriquez (1425-13 February 1468), was the second wife of John II of Aragon.

She was an Aragonese Noblewoman. She was a daughter of Fadrique Enríquez, Count of Melba and Rueda and Mariana de Córdoba. By her father, she was a direct descendant of a bastard of Henry II of Castile.

She gave birth to Fernando II of Aragon who was chosen over his half-brother, Carlos of Viana to rule Aragon. Fernando married Isabella of Castile who inherited the throne from her half-brother, Henry IV of Castile. Henry's first wife was Fernando's half-sister by John's first wife, Blanca of Navarre (1420-1464).

Juana then gave birth to Infanta Juana of Aragon who married Ferdinand I of Naples. According to numerous historians (including Henry Charles Lea, Benzion Netanyahu) and Norman Roth the Enriquez clan were known to be descendants of Jews converted to Catholicism during the 14th century. (Norman Roth, "Conversos, Inquisition, and the Expulsion of the Jews from Spain," Madison, WI, The University of Wisconsin Press, 1995, p. 151.)
