Book review

Originally published in 1906 as a portion of the authors’ larger “The Story of the Greatest Nations, Vol. VII,” this Kindle edition, equivalent in length to a physical book of approximately 16 pages, describes the lives and reign of Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain, who supported the expedition of Christopher Columbus, captured Granada from the Moors, and instituted the Spanish Inquisition.

Includes supplemental material:

•About Ferdinand and Isabella in Brief
•About Castile, Aragon, and Granada in Brief
•About the Moors in Brief
•About the Spanish Inquisition in Brief

Sample passage:
Thus at last all the little Christian kingdoms of the Spanish peninsula were, with the exception of Portugal, united under this youthful royal couple. And seldom have a pair seemed better mated, or king and queen proved abler. Each was wise, earnest, and energetic. We are told that Isabella was an inch taller as she was a year older than her husband; but Ferdinand was not the man to be overshadowed in any company; and though we cannot find for his cold nature the same admiration we give to her intense and holy spirit, yet it may well be that his strength and caution were just the qualities needed to give weight and success to her less calculated impulses. Indeed Isabella seldom came forward, leaving the task of government to her husband, except when her deeper enthusiasms were aroused.
