On Good Friday an earthquake spread horror and misery from Castile clear down to Morocco. In Seville houses, fortifications, cathedrals collapsed. The crops failed Plague incubated in the famished population. Autumn brought endless floods, pouring from inky heavens. Late planting rotted. She was ready to die. For thirty years she had guided the unwieldy empire with steady hand. Her limbs swelled beyond recognizable proportions, her skin stretched taut over her bloated body. Fever parched her with unquenchable thirst. In every church of the country prayers rose to heaven. Long processions filed through the cities in pious testimonial, anxious exhortation.

Landing in Santander after a stormy voyage, the seven teen-year-old girl plighted troth to the young prince be fore the Patriarch of Alexandria. The Archbishop of Toledo performed the final wedding ceremony at Burgos in April.
