Juana la Loca

Joan is pregnant again.
She is in good health but is prone

to certain obsessions,
to outlandish behavior.

Save your excuses.
My daughterJoan is mad.

How do you think I should act?
You want to exclude her
from government,

and I don't object.
I have said so
to your father, the emperor.

Perhaps you should see her
in Burgos and judge for yourself.

No, I don't want to see her
in that state.

Moreover, it would be cruel
to confront her with Germaine.

But, I admit,
it's also unfair to prevent
Germaine from meeting

her stepdaughter,
the mad queen of Castile.

More wine?
De Veyre...
Do you believeJoan is mad?
It suits Don Ferdinand
that his daughter is mad.

And do you believe
that it also suits me?

That is not the question.
Who does Joan want for king?
Her father or her husband?

For the moment, you have
the father's permission

to declare that
his daughter is mad.

Congratulations, Sire.
Leave us, Elvira.
