King Ferdinand

King Ferdinand was the king of Aragon. His wife, Isabelle, was from Castile. They controlled both places separately and didn’t try to combine them. Isabelle’s death in 1504 made him upset, but that didn’t stop Ferdinand. After a conquest over Granada, he began to support Christopher Columbus. He was part of the decision of how Columbus would travel. It could also be possible that he funded the first trip. When he started to get sick, he prepared his grandson Charles V for the throne. King Ferdinand died in 1516.
