Also see . . .  Isabella I of Castile (Wikipedia). Isabella and Ferdinand are known for supporting and financing Christopher Columbus's 1492 voyage that led to the discovery of the New World and to the establishment of Spain as a major power in Europe and much of the world for more than a century. Isabella officially withdrew from governmental affairs on 14 September 1504 and she died that same year on 26 November at the Medina del Campo Royal Palace. She is entombed in Granada in the Capilla Real. The museum next to the Capilla Real holds her crown and scepter. (Submitted on August 4, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
