Isabella and Ferdinand were only the monarchs of their respective kingdoms; Isabella of Castille and Ferdinand of Aragon.
Under their sucessors each kingdom had its own law, administration, taxation... (even though all were governed by the same person). The kingdoms continued to be different entities until the 18th century. It was really more complex than that; and without a shred of doubt this caused enormous headaches throughout history.
All american possessions were of castille.
Isabella then agreed to fund Columbus' voyage about 3 months later, in April 1492 (with him setting off on August 3).
Just one thing: it's Azincourt with a Z. :-)
"Azincourt (French pronunciation: [azɛ̃kuʁ]; historically, Agincourt /ˈæʒɪnkʊr/ in English) is a commune in the Pas-de-Calais department in northern France.
The Battle of Agincourt (1415) took place nearby."
I've never heard the battle referred to as "Azincourt".
But, undoubtedly, he was not born in the year 0, as there is no year 0.
Written in 1787, ratified in 1788, and in operation since 1789, the United States Constitution is the world’s longest surviving written charter of government.
