Catalina de Habsburgo by Yolanda Scheuber

By Yolanda Scheuber

La dura vida de una mujer que, a pesar de que su cuna le garantizaba todo, sufrió innumerables dolores desde su más tierna infancia.

Catalina de Habsburgo nació con todos los privilegios de clase que una mujer del S. XVI podía tener, nieta de los Reyes Católicos, hija de Juana los angeles Loca y de Felipe el Hermoso y hermana de los emperadores Carlos V y Felipe I, su vida, como nos muestra Catalina de Habsburgo, reina de Portugal, no fue un camino de rosas. Por orden de su abuelo, Fernando el Católico, será encerrada en Tordesillas junto a su madre y maltratada por los marqueses de Denia que las denigrarán de todos los modos posibles. Su hermano el emperador Carlos V l. a. liberará y los angeles casará con Juan III, rey de Portugal. Pero ahí no acaban sus desgracias, tuvo que enterrar a sus nueve hijos, a su marido y dejar los angeles regencia, en espera de que subiera al trono su nieto Sebastián, en las manos de su cuñado el cardenal Enrique.

Yolanda Scheuber utiliza como narradora a l. a. propia reina, recluida en un monasterio en los últimos años de su vida, nos muestra de un modo meridiano y hermoso los valores que caracterizaron a esta reina, su abnegación y resignación ante el destino que el emperador había decidido para ella y, sobre todo, ante l. a. pérdida de sus hijos; pero también su determinación cuando, ante los angeles demanda de Carlos V, se negó a anexionar Portugal a España porque quería salvaguardar l. a. herencia de su nieto Sebastián. l. a. autora, con el estilo lírico que le caracteriza, nos trae esta vida de princesa usada como moneda de cambio, obedeciendo los designios de su padre y sus hermanos.

Un libro que te sumergirá en las intrigas y los juegos de poder de l. a. etapa imperial española, que llega a los lugares a los que l. a. historia rigurosa no es capaz de llegar y que reivindica a una reina prácticamente olvidada por los angeles historia oficial de España.

“Un drama histórico muy bien documentado y de una gran calidad literaria que nos transportará como por arte de magia, a l. a. Europa del siglo XVI, en cuyos reinos se agitan los odios y las confabulaciones, las pasiones carnales más desenfrenadas y los amores más sublimes, así como el heroísmo y l. a. abnegación.”(Revista Experpento)

“La vida de Catalina se nos narra con un lenguaje poético, más intimista que en otras entregas de l. a. serie y con menor carga de datos históricos.

Our animals go blind, their eyes like blood, the sighted centre part become a dull grey caul, as with a skin of fat upon raw meat. We leave our homes, our settlements, a great crowd near as many as when people gather in to raise the stones.
