 History of Castile and Leon - IBWiki
Alfonso XII of Castile and Leon and Ferdinand II of Aragon still joined a final effort to invade Granada, expulse the Jews and forcefully convert the Moors.
Additionally, Castile and Leon became dependent on her colonies for income, and when Queen Elizabeth I of England began to capture Spanish vessels on the way to and from the New World, Spain suffered massive economic losses.
These effects, combined with the expulsion of Castile and Leon's most economically vital classes in the late 15th century (the Jews and the Moors), caused Castile and Leon's economy to collapse several times in the 16th century, bringing the Golden Age of Castile and Leon to a close.

Although our picture of Eleanor of Castile inevitably is colored by this anomalous situation of the constant existence of two queens during Eleanor of Castile's entire reign, and that the younger Eleanor was never widow nor regent, however, does not mean that her life is not a most interesting one to study.
Eleanor of Castile's prerogatives as queen may be a very small part of the story, and she may have been less of a traditional queen figure as the reflection of the queen of heaven than her mother in law Eleanor of Provence, but this is only to be expected.
Thus, Parsons' treatment of Eleanor of Castile written relatively early in his career, is remarkable in achieving the same type of depth which after many years of research and publication on a variety of topics, Marjorie Chibnall has brought to her most accomplished and wonderful biography of the twelfth- century Matilda, Empress.
