Juana stood there as the King of England began speaking to her, her gaze met with his in a instant and she moved to have a seat once the wine was brought to her and she brought it to her lips slowly placing it down after

"Thank you your majesty, it is no secret the Kingdom of Spain, through Aragon and that of Castile are cousins of mine. My great grandfather was the son of Alfonso V of Aragon, Ferdinand I of Naples was his name" she paused a moment

"it is no secret my great great grandfather was indeed the uncle to that of Ferdinand II of Aragon your once father in law." she smiled at him kindly "I am grateful that my blood relations should not hinder me coming here and I thank you most kindly for your compliments, I had not imagined such words would spread so far even to your court. It flatters me and your wine is lovely here your majesty"

She sat there then listening to the King's proposal, allies and friendship between them. This was her first time in England for quite some time and she knew well her husband no longer spent his time at her side, she even letting him his choice to spend his days among the church and relinquishing her marriage bed with him all together.

Hearing him mention of a marriage alliance her wine glass to her lips as she took a drink of wine slowly placing it down "yes your majesty, as a matter a fact I have a few sons. My son the Duke of Calabria, Ferdinand and my sons Peter who I've given the princedom of Taranto to and that of my son John who governs my father's lands in Salerno.

I have been blessed with beautiful and strong sons the lord has been kind to do so, my son Maximillian is my youngest while my sons Arthur, and Alexei are the older ones, Arthur my son being the eldest one. I have also been blessed with a few daughters as well, my daughters Ines and Emma. My daughter Adelaide fell ill and passed away some time prior while in Italy.
" she looked at the kind King who welcomed her in his presence

"Your daughter how old is she, this Katherine? My son Peter is of age to wed as are the others while Maximilian and Emma are still so little now in age. But my son Peter my heir and Prince of Taranto I will present for this union if you welcome it."

Henry sighed deeply

I'm sorry for your daughter, Your Majesty. But I'm gld hearing God blessed you with so many children. I hope having a son very soon..since my Queen is with child..

He smiled and gestured servants to let them talking alone

There are not compliments, my Lady. That's simply the truth. You are such a lovely woman..before than a Queen. My daughter Katherine is 16, so I think she could be perfect for one of your sons. No matter if he is older..I'm sure he'll treat her like a jewel. You know..my daughter is so innocent..she knows nothing about the world. But..she is also very young, so she can give us grandchildren..

He said before taking his glass of wine

Although Queen Juana had listened to everything, her wine glass placed on the table, her eyes looked right at the King with them dark hues of hers, She had the strong features which was legendary to her mother Lucrezia Borgia even who was a mother she didn't even really know. Her finger tips run along the table a bit as she listened to everything spoken "Your daughter must be lovely beyond compare and yes my son Peter will treat her well" She admitted while her hand reached for the wine in her glass "But my son Peter being my heir will one day take the thrones of Jerusalem and Naples, I have been preparing him his entire life to take the place of myself one day when the time comes and he will need sons, heirs from this daughter of yours. I have no doubt we will have many grandchildren"

"Tell me of this daughter of yours, what is she like your majesty? Is she legitimate? regardless of if she is or not I am sure something can be arranged for her dowry, my father was after all the illegitimate son of a former King of Naples." She smiled thinking then of her son Peter "Peter my son is strong willed, bold and cunning. Even as a woman I have educated him well, I have no doubt he may even come to impress your majesty greatly and now as you wish a alliance with me I should like to introduce you to your new future son in law if you will permit it."

Henry nodded with a smile

My daughter Katherine is illegittimate, my Lady. But I'm sure we'll find a good agreement about her dowry. Also, I can assure you that she is still a virgin, and that she is in good health. That's why I'm sure she'll grant many Princes for the throne of Naples and Jerusalem..

He took a sip from wine before continuing

I'll be glad to meet your son, when this will be possible..Your Majesty. About my daughter...she is rather shy..so I ask to be patient before meeting her. But she will be a good Queen for your son..

Queen Juana looked right at the King, relaxing in her chair she had the glass of wine to her lips drinking it while listening to him, the conversations they had for this alliance together and she smiled at his words "I believe your majesty, weather she has sons or daughters I will be a proud grandmother surely" she admitted, pleased to hear the Lady Katherine his daughter be a virgin, it ensured surely the legitimacy of the wedding so there wouldn't be any obstacles between when it came to the marriage bed.

"it pleases me your majesty to hear your daughter be so pious and a maid, a stranger to the touch of any man. I should like it to remain as such of course, my son has been raised a Catholic Prince and I know him to be kind and wise but he can be a bit like me of course with his bold nature." she smiled a bit, her wine glass emptied of course from finishing every drop from it.

"her shyness is no issue your majesty, but if you would permit it I encourage her to stay with me so I may educate her the customs of my homeland. If she is to be Queen Consort of Naples and Jerusalem one day she will need to know much, I will send a tutor to educate her further if you should allow it.

They have educated my own children as well, it would be good especially since Naples often gathers the royal family, myself and my children to speak to the people on behalf of the Kingdom's of Naples and Jerusalem and we have people who come, loyal subjects even to myself.
"

"I would not wish to overwhelm her with such trifles but perhaps it will benefit her surely, even as a woman. She will I have no doubt make us both proud of her " she smiled at the King, sure she was a rather attractive woman of course but she was sure the rumors of her own marriage had reached here regarding that her husband

"I admit, the company of my son Peter he tends to spend much time with me along with my other children. I have a husband who no longer spends at my side your majesty who takes to the life of a church, the King Consort has been stripped of his titles but lives a life in retirement and pilgrimage for his own choice.


I have chose to grant it, I suppose you can say I could not deny my own husband his desires, to be truly with the lord and his subjects.
" she admitted so much to the King, "yes I will send for my son Peter to come, I will be happy to introduce you to him and yes I will be patient with your daughter as well. She will be safe with me I assure you"

Henry listened her with attention and interest. He looked at her with a smile before speaking

Oh I have no doubts she will be safe with you, Your Majesty. Making her Queen Consort of Naples and Jerusalem will make me even prouder of her. As I told you, she is very shy. And since her mother passed away..she needs a guide. I think that 50,000 golden shields is a raisonable amount for her dowry. And I may add an old residence in Suffolk and the land around it. My grandmother..Queen Elizabeth Woodville, loved spending time there..

He took another sip from his wine and looked at her beautiful face. He couldn't help to smile

Also..I totally agree about the tutor. But..I would like to ask you something, my Lady. You see, since my daughter is very innocent, and since she has no longer a mother, she knows nothing about marriage. She has never been alone in a room with a man. So..I'm sure you know what I mean. I would love that you would explain to her..what's happens during wedding night. A woman like you..with your experience..and so many children..I can't think about one else. Oh..I also hope my request didn't offend you, Your Majesty..

Juana of Aragon looked right at the King of England, the young Queen of Jerusalem and Naples sitting right in her seat, everyone knowing well her accomplishments but she too hard a dark history even behind that beautiful and lovely face of hers. She moved her fingers along the wine glass as the servants refilled it for her "It will be substantial enough, my lands are vast as well and I am sorry to hear that her dear mother has perished. I never had the chance truly to know mine, When she married her third husband she was demanded to abandon my brothers, Giovanni and Rodrigo as well as I. the d'Este had there wishes to uphold, any past history of my mother had to be cast aside for them to accept her" She admitted

"Sadly, it included myself. After my father's murder, my mother abandoning us came so suddenly I do not remember her face, I have been a orphan all my life, I suppose you can say I know how your daughter feels to be without a mothers love." Juana had a kindness in her, a motherly nature as well due that she had so many children... sons and daughters alike, "Although I was raised a while with my brother Rodrigo by our aunt, the Duchess of Bari, Isabella of Aragon. She educated me in so much, made sure I had the knowledge of everything as best as she could"

A smile formed her lips even at his offer "I will accept your proposal, I will educate your daughter, the Lady Katherine myself and send a fine tutor one of my subjects to do so, and if you permit I should like substantial apartments so I may even work with her personally myself, her latin, Italian and even the art of music. My people love music, I have no doubt she will love to flourish in it while she matures in age further. I will do the same for her as my aunt had done for me your majesty"

Henry nodded after listening her

Thank you, Your Majesty. I know my daughter will be in good hands with you. She is lucky having such a mother in law. She loves music..so I think she will accept gladly your help. So..to our children. May they have a long and happy life and having many children...especially sons..

He laughed and raised his glass of wine, looking straight at her

I had arrived at Whitehall with the excommunication notice from the Pope and I knew that King Henry would not like it but I had to show him it and I waited to be admitted to his presence.

Juana smiled at his majesty before the Queen brought the glass of wine to her lips once more "i do hope to be one very much so which will make her even proud to call me as such. I am honored for the oppra of course your majesty" she admitted but being wise beyond her years she was indeed intensely attractive as well. Once she heard of a cardinal to arrive she glanced over being catholic of faith herself firmly so "your eminence, it is a pleasure" she admitted to the cardinal coming to visit the King.
