Listen to Janet Avery, local history buff and a member of the Richard ɪɪɪ Society, talk about Queen Juana ɪ of Castile (1479-1555), daughter of Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain, was declared insane by her husband and father and spent her last 46 years in prison. Historians now suspect she was betrayed by ambitious men who used her "madness" to rule Spain in her place.
