a la Dama de Arintero»

1475, Arintero. Había pasado apenas un mes desde la muerte de Enrique IV cuando, un domingo de enero, los hombres fueron llamados a la guerra. El trono se disputaba entre su única hija y los que serían los reyes católicos, Isabel y Fernando, y las tierras de Castilla se convirtieron en el campo de batalla que cambiaría para siempre el destino del reino.

Aquel domingo, cuando el conde de Arintero recibió la noticia, su salud ya no le permitía luchar. Sin embargo, una de sus hijas, la joven Juana, decidió representar a su familia en la batalla y embarcarse en una aventura épica, repleta de intrigas y pasión, en la que deberá luchar por la corona y por no ser descubierta.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The fascinating tale of Juana of Arintero, the first female warrior and soldier in Spain.

“If you wish to know who
this brave warrior is,
remove the weapons and witness
the Lady of Arintero.”

1475,
Arintero. It was a Sunday in January, barely a month after Henry IV had died, when the men were called off to war. The throne was being vied for by who would be known as their Catholic majesties, Isabelle and Ferdinand, and their only daughter. And so, Castilian soil became a battlefield that would change the fate of the kingdom forever.
 
That Sunday, when the Count of Arintero got word, his health no longer allowed him to fight. However, one of his daughters, young Juana, decided to represent her family in battle and embark on an epic adventure full of intrigue and passion, where she would fight for the sake of the crown while trying not to get caught.
 
In this novel, based in the Leonese romance, Teresa Sagrera will captivate her readers with a war tale meant to be a song of peace. It is the story of a fighter, a warrior that had to hide behind armor to save the realm, honor her family, and become legend.
