Today in Social Sciences we have checked the five exercices that Paqui gave last Friday. Before explaining it I want to thank to our classmatess for say us the homework. Well, the exercices were about the Catholic Monarchs.
Exercice 1>It was about the situation of the Iberian Peninsula at the beggining of the 15th century:
-There were 5 kingdoms in the Iberian Peninsula, four of them were Christians (Castile, Aragon, Portugal and Navarre) and one was Muslim (Granada).
Exercice 2> We had to write the causes of the civil war:
-The civil war occured because after Enrique's IV death the throne would be for Juana but the rumors of Spain said that Enrique couldn't have children and Juana was dauther of Beltrán de la Cueva, so Isabella would be the queen. Portugal support Juana and Aragon and some castillian nobles support Isabella.
Exercice 3> In this exercice we had to explain the main decitions of the Treaty of Alcaçovas:
-Isabel, queen of Castile.
-Portugal get the control of exploration of the african costs of the Atlantic Ocean.
-Juana was confered in a convent.
Exercice 4>We had to explain why the marriage of the Catholic Kings was a dynastic union:
They could control a big part of the Peninsula, but each crown will be continue being independent.
Exercice 5>We had to explain the motto ``Tanto monta, monta tanto, Isabel como Fernando´´ and how it determinated the Catholic King's policy:
Isabel and Fernando gave powers to each other, in order that one could rule in the kindom of the other one, but only Fernando used his power to rule Castile. Isabel never showed interest in Aragonece affairs.
After checked the exercices Kelly has read about territories conquered by the Catholic Monarchs and the reforms made by the Catholic Monarchs to reinforce their authority.
Then Paqui has written in the blackboard a scheme about we have already read while has shown us a powerpoint about it.
Finally Kelly has going to explain us about the Holy Brotherhood but the bell has rung...
