Compendium for Juan II

A Sensational New Discovery: A Royal Spanish Manuscript
September 27, 2017

This engaging royal manuscript was made for Juan II of Castile and Leon around 1425, and perhaps later owned by Isabella, Queen of Spain. This manuscript includes a map of the known world from just before the Age of Discovery. This compendium of texts, as a ‘mirror of princes’ offers instruction on the ways a king should govern.
