TRUTH !!
Isabella I and her husband Ferdinand were the rulers of Spain during the
Inquisitions. They expelled and killed thousands of Jews and Muslims.
Isabella was a staunch Catholic who believed she was cleansing her country.
She was considered by most to have been an educated, intelligent, and
eloquent queen who loved her country and its people. But when it came to
religion she had no qualms with killing those who disagreed with her.
