The Wreck of Catalonia

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the king of Aragon's interest in Castile, not only as an immediate source of salvation, but as the kingdom where lay his dynastic roots and ambition. With mastery over it, towards which he had struggled all his life, the Crown of Aragon needed fear no foe. He could achieve a goal that had long tantalized his family: take the crown of Castile from the senior branch, which had produced a catastrophic series of kings, into the resolute hands of the junior Trastámares.

Keywords:   king of Aragon, Castile, France, Juan, marriage
