History of the Reign of Ferdinand and Isabella the Catholic
by Prescott, William Hickling

Overview -
Until the 15th century, Spain was only a distant participant in the general movement of European affairs. The different kingdoms sharing the Spanish peninsula were individually too weak to pursue an energetic foreign policy. The marriage of royal cousins, Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castile, in 1469 brought stability to both kingdoms. Both understood the importance of unity; together they effected institutional reform, such as in the Spanish Reformation, and left Spain one of the best administered countries in Europe. William Hickling Prescott (1796-1859) was the first American to win international acclaim as an historian. Prescott has stood the test of time and is as fascinating to read today as he must have been 100 years ago.
