For many years I have been researching our family history. My great aunt used to tell us we were descendants of royalty. Sure, anyone can say that, but there are people that devote a lifetime trying to prove it. I have stubbled upon our royal ancestors, I know that not all the people that are part of my heritage were good people. For the next several weeks I am going to focus on women that are my royal ancestors. I believe the women if the family are just as important as the men. I mean really, it takes two people to make a child. Why do people just focus on the men? Maria is my 21 great grandmother. She stems from the Spink side of my family.

MARIA Juana DePadilla was born in 1334 in Spain, the child of Juan Garciez and Maria De. She married King of Castile. She then married PETER Cruel Castile Leon and they had one daughter together in 1355. She died in August 1361 in Spain, at the age of 27.
