Philip I
Birth: Jul. 22, 1478
West Flanders (West-Vlaanderen), Belgium
Death: Sep. 25, 1506
Castilla y León, Spain

Habsburg Royalty. Also known as Philip the Handsome. Born at Bruges in present day Belgium, he was the son of the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I and Mary of Burgundy. Heir to his mother's Burundian dominions, which included the Low Countries, he was held prisoner after her death in 1482 by the city of Ghent. They objected to Maximilian's regency for Philip. Maximilian secured his son's release in 1485. A marriage was arranged between Philip and Juana, daughter of Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain the following year, a desirable alliance since the death of Juan, the only son of Ferdinand and Isabella, opened the succession to the Spanish Crown to Juana. Juana became deeply enamored of her profligate husband. In 1502 Philip and Juana received homage of the cortes of Castile and of Aragon who recognized the pair as their future rulers. Philip then returned to Flanders before the close of the year. His marriage was difficult, marred by his infidelity and by Juana’s overwhelming jealousy. Juana often displayed fits of rage in response to his behavior. By 1504, Juana was seen as mad, and husband and wife lived apart. When Juana's mother, Isabella died, Philip was summoned to Spain where he was recognized as king of Castile. He landed, with his wife, at La Coruña on April 28, 1506, accompanied by German mercenaries. Philip, however, died suddenly at Burgos, probably of typhoid fever, five months later. Juana refused to allow his body to be buried or to be apart from it. Despite her objections, he was interred at Granada in a tomb that would eventually be shared by his wife.  (bio by: Iola)
