... when Aragon was the wealthier and more developed part of the country?? Also, what type of person was Ferdinand II?? despite being the "man", he always seems to be on the shadow of his wife Isabella, which is rather unusual for a medieval couple.

Castile was by far the larger partner yet it was a marriage alliance that created Spain not a war.

Far better to go into a good marriage with your eyes wide open, rather than heading for war. This way you deserve what you get.
What a handsome figure of a dragon. No wonder I fall madly in love with the Alani Dragon now, the avatar, it's a gorgeous dragon picture.

So Isabella was a bossy wife who dominated her husband?
